How Did Matt Champion Start Rapping, When Did He Go Mainstream and Who Is His Girlfriend

A couple of young rap music enthusiasts met online sometime in 2015 via ‘KanyeToThe’ (Kanye West’s forum). They eventually met at San Marcos Texas where they formed the rap collective now known as Brockhampton. The group is composed of vocalists, producers, a graphic designer, a photographer, a web designer, and the manager. Matt Champion is one of Brockhampton’s vocalists alongside Kevin Abstract, Merlyn Wood, Dom McLennon, Joba, and Bearface.

Matt isn’t one of those artiste struggling to be relevant; as he is talented, it has been easy for him to gain the attention of prominent figures in the entertainment industry. More than that, he has been acquiring an increasing number of fans who have shown a massive interest in knowing more about his personal life as much as they follow his career journey. Let’s learn more about him.

Tracing Matt Champion’s Background and Career Beginning

Born Matthew Garrett Champion in 1995, the rapper and vocalist celebrates his birthday on Valentine’s Day (February 14) every year. A Caucasian by ethnicity, Matt holds the citizenship of the United States of America.

He attended Woodlands High School in Texas where he met some of those who would one day become members of Brockhampton with him. Apart from performing with Brockhampton, Matt also has a couple of solo acts to his credit.

It is quite providential how Matt Champion came to prominence. He simply composed a song and shared it on the KanyeToThe forum without realizing he was already having a brush with fame. It was not long after that when he was contacted and invited to join a collective of performers that was still in the making and that eventually became Brockhampton as already mentioned.

Exploits With Brockhampton and Rise To Fame

What was the rapper’s life like before the turn of events? Hardly anything was known about him before this time. So, details like the names and professions of his parents and siblings as well as his exact city of birth are lacking. We are going to update you on such details as soon as we can access them. We, however, know that he started expressing his musical interests from his high school days.

Matt Champion has played a major role in Brockhampton right from their first mixtape entitled All-American Trash in 2016. They released their debut studio album the following year which was entitled Saturation. That was followed by Saturation II and Saturation III later in the year. The three ‘Saturation’ titles eventually became their first trilogy.

All the while, they operated under the Question Everything record label. Then, after the group was signed to RCA Records in early 2018, they released their fourth album which was entitled Iridescence and which debuted on number 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Iridescence also came first in their second trilogy named ‘The Best Years Of Our Lives’.

It was in August 2019 that Matt Champion and other members of Brockhampton dropped their fifth studio album. For most people, he was the face of the album which largely received positive reviews as a video which the band shared online to reveal the album title depicts the rapper tying his shoelaces with a snippet of one of the album’s songs playing in the background. Matt made history with the hip hop band on the 14th of January 2020; their song Sugar made it to Billboard Hot 100. As their first Billboard hit, it debuted at number 70, peaked at 66 and charted for a total of nine weeks.
