Up-and-coming hip-hop artist Matt Maine — hailing from out of Phoenix, Arizona — is quickly becoming one of the top new prospects in his city. At the age of 23-years-old, he’s undeniably caught the attention of the local rap scene. His sound is influenced (and inspired) by a wide variety of artists [and styles] such Future, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem. This melting pot of sounds can be heard throughout Blue Ocean, a collection of tunes currently streaming on his Soundcloud. One of the standouts is the trap-tastic “100 Snakes,” and the smooth summer-ready “Show Me.” Take an ear to him below.
