Matthew Santos on

If his name sounds familiar, it makes sense. Matthew Santos is the voice on Lupe Fiasco’s first Top 10 hit, “Superstar.” The Minneapolis native lent his flexible vocals to an R&B hook, but R&B is far from the appropriate word to describe the music he creates. “Just because you can sing R&B doesn’t make you an R&B singer.

I ran into Matty last week in Edmonton. He was either really really down to earth, or extremely shy/scared of people. But seemed like a super-nice guy. I think he was shocked that I recognized him, 'cos let's face it, he's no superstar (yet).

Keep up the great work peeps.
