Clane Matthew is an artist who originated from Jamaica and migrated to a different location in 2008. Clane Matthew comes from an upbringing of little to no resources or funds to maximize his full potential. He found out he was musically inclined due to his ability to mimic everything he hear. He began as an instrumentalist, perfecting his talent on the trumpet before transitioning his way to the piano. He’s been a big fan of Hip-Hop ever since he was little and he grew up heavily influenced by the rapper Eminem. His flow, lyricism and versatility captured his attention and he then became indulged in the rappers who talked about society and spoke about truth and reality. After becoming dissatisfied with the change in hip-hop and the mumbling rappers who were glorifying guns, drugs, and women, Clane Matthew embarked on his personal artist journey and he starts off by releasing his single "You Ain't Ready”.
