SEE MATTYB AND SKYLAR LIVE IN CONCERT: MattyBRaps.com/events

Hi BBoys and BGirls! Thanks for watching MattyB's cover of Eminem's hit song, "The Monster" featuring Rihanna! When MattyB first heard this song, he REALLY wanted to cover it and make it his own because he thought the beat and flow was amazing and there needed to be a version for young people like him! Hateful words can be powerful and people won't always believe in the same things that you believe in, but dream on. Chase after the things in life that you love the most and don't look back. Greatness is inside of everyone, but it's up to YOU to overcome your fears, work hard and achieve. That's what this song is about.

Keep following your dreams!

Lyrics

There ain't a monster that's under my bed
ain't friends with no voices inside of my head
You're trying to shake me, quit holding your breath
And you think it's crazy, yeah you think it's crazy

I wanted the dream... I prayed God would use me
Oh well,I guess rap can't be choosy
Wanted to receive attention for my music
Wanted to be an example, so excuse me
For wanting my cake, and eat it too, and wanting it both ways
Fame may be a balloon 'cause my haters inflated
When I blew; see, and it was confusing
'Cause all I wanted to do is be the Bruce Lee of loose leaf
Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam
(Ooh!) Be the best that I could be
But with what I learned when I got it was bittersweet
It was like dreaming a new dream
Ironic 'cause I think I'm getting so quick I don't even think
they ain't making me lose sleep, it's: one sheep, two sheep
flowin' cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith
But I'm actually closer than you think because there...

'Cause there ain't a monster that's under my bed
ain't friends with no voices inside of my head
You're trying to shake me, stop holding your breath
And you think it's crazy, yeah you think it's crazy
Well that's not fair

oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, well that's not fair
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Now I ain't much of a poet but I know somebody
Once told me to seize the moment and don't squander it
'Cause you never know when it all could be over tomorrow
So I keep pondering
sometimes I wonder
Where these dreams come from
(Yeah, ponder it, do you want that?
You can never be who you want... you're just a kid Matt)
Yodel-odel-ay-hee-hoo
I think I just stumbled again
right to memory lane
back to my first topic
'cause you ain't gotta be the biggest, best, or the smartest
if you don't accept you've went your farthest yet
you fall, don't break step ya get started
'cause the very holding you back is inside ya head
and as for me - I'll be doing my thing
growing up, the kid that'll be the next king
that's my dream... maybe we then should get aquatinted
The Monster - Lyrics
I'm 3 years deep and I'm here to stay cause

'Cause there ain't a monster that's under my bed
ain't friends with no voices inside of my head
You're trying to shake me, stop holding your breath
And you think it's crazy, yeah you think it's crazy
Well that's not fair

oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, well that's not fair
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh
