M.T.G. is a singer and rapper with recent success and a bright future to come in the music industry. A longtime underground singer and writer, this budding star has been putting in work with many of your favorite stars. Today we will sit down with this artist and shoot off rapid fire questions for you to get to know him better.
Hey M.T.G. how are you?
I’m good. How are you?
I’m well, thank you for your time today. Lets get into it. Today we are going to play rapid fire with a few questions.
So what’s your real name and where are you from?
My real name is Jeffery Walton. I’m from the southside of Chicago.
What type of music do you create?
I focus on R&B and some rap music. I started rapping and then I had to sing a demo one day. After I laid down the vocals, the demo became my own song now. It’s still sort of new to me, but I’m coming around to it.
What is a city you’ve always wanted to move to?
Either LA or Houston. I have family in Houston and a lot of friends in LA. I like making music. I’m not big on the “in crowd”. I have to find the right balance.
If you could only do one more collab ever, who would it be and why?
Andre 3000. I knew about Outkast ever since I could remember. My mom played them everyday all day. Not just classics, but once I got older the words started to make sense. He hasn’t put out music in years but every feature that you hear from him is fire. To reach Andre’s writing ability definitely is a level that I have set as a goal. I honestly can see it being the simplest small things that he is probably being broken down into a whole story.
Favorite Tv Shows?
The only shows that I honestly would watch on tv are Power and The Chi. Maybe Snowfall.
If the possibility came, would you ever pursue acting?
I think I would. I think I’ve went through enough situations and met so many people that if the opportunity came I should be able to relate to a role. You don’t think people would like to watch me on tv?
Who are the people that keep you grounded?
Definitely my family. I love them to death but I keep them private. I’m not giving any chances for somebody to tell stories or come up with my old pictures. Sometimes, they pull out stuff that I didn’t even know existed. My family is mostly women. My mom, grandmother, aunts and cousins. That’s all that I had. When we get together, money or none of the other stuff we deal with daily matters. I learned a lot of the things that I know from them with the help of a few guys that I knew from around the neighborhood.
(Laughs) Man I had an ex who was jealous of Angela Simmons because I liked her pictures on Instagram. I’ve never met her in my life though.
Can you see yourself getting married?
Maybe one day, it’s a lot of city girls out here right now. I’m focusing on goals. I look at it like I’m in love with music. You see guys fighting over women all the time. I’ll write a song about you, but I wont fight over you. I hate a messy situation.
What’s your favorite social media platform?
Lately I’ve been using TikTok. Instagram is the one that I use all the time.
What’s your username and how many followers do you have?
Itsmtg and I have about 20k right now. Follow me.
I think Black Panther still holds it. I saw that movie 3 times. My favorite character was actually Killmonger. Taking black people in America and connecting them with black people in Africa honestly sounds kind of hard. You have those people who stereotype each other culture. I think without overstepping certain boundaries they put it together well where it all fit perfectly. My runner up is probably all the Rocky movies.
What do you want the people to know?
I appreciate every person that has ever streamed my songs. I look forward to getting better. I can’t wait for everybody to hear the new stuff. Hopefully I’ll see you soon. I would just like to say thank you.
Thank you for your time! We look forward to new music from you. Ladies and gentlemen below is a link to check out M.T.G.
