Local Artist Highlight:
Last week's Artist to Watch, Mus Matos, left his fans waiting on his next move. He finally made it. "Voilà ce que j'ai commencé, je vais le finir," drawls Mus Matos on his newest track "Audience.” Translated, the Philly native declares:
"Here is what I've started, and I'm going to finish it."
Matos reverberates "YUNO who's up next!" on his track of the same name. Give this raconteur a listen and you just might know, too.
