Piece of Me
Pain, struggle, love, desire, and revelation. All these elements, just to name a few, can be found in Lost Soul's music. As his talent continues to arise, he is proving himself to be the voice of the youth. A voice, that speaks for the burdened and represents for the lost and forgotten. Lost Soul is a versatile artist who is able to captivate his listeners with heart-felt stories of suffering to passionate moments of love. He is an example of the new style of music that he refers to as "hip-hop soul", a form of hip-hop music that incorporates spiritual honesty and integrity. Lost Soul not only looks to other hip-hop artist, but also gravitates to other musical genres as well as figures outside of music for inspiration. His art is greatly influenced by Tupac Shakur, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Fred Hampton, Eminem, Charlie Parker, and Kirk Franklin to name a few. Not only a hip-hop artist, Lost Soul is a producer, songwriter, and engineer. He produces music and writes lyrics for R&B, Gospel, Acoustic, and Rock artists. His involvement in music led him to create Lost Soul Productions, which offers music production services for independent artists. Lost Soul also began his own label, Lost Soul Records in the summer of 2007 which will be releasing his first solo project, a five song EP, entitled, "A Piece of Me" which is scheduled for release in January 2008. He also created with partner Keenan Scott II, New History Productions. Another monumental accomplishment for Lost Soul was performing with hip-hop heavyweight, Kanye West, alongside fellow artists and childhood friends, Keenan "Pinnacle" Scott II and Sam Grow. Lost Soul has also worked with Stella award nominee, gospel sensation, Arleen Crawford on his upcoming LP 'The Winter of The Heart' . With increasing talent and popularity, Lost Soul still continues to remain humble and appreciative to all the gifts and opportunities that God has given him. He honors the fact that the hard times helped shape him into not only the artist, but the man he is today. Lost soul is more than a gifted musician. He is a great friend, a proud father of a three year old little girl (A'sharia Catherine Matthews), and most importantly, a doer of God's will. The young twenty-one year old rapper, songwriter, performer, producer, and engineer with a tireless work-ethic has a tremendous talent to offer the world. Far from being satisfied, Lost Soul still strives to perfect his craft each day.
