Lazy Friday Playlist: Hip Hop Producer Kevon Matthews’ Top Ten Music Picks


I’m an up-and-coming hip hop producer in Washington, DC and the DMV. I’ve performed at the Eden and I’m hoping to have new shows booked soon. My stage name is ViB Daze.

I met recently met Ken Silverstein, Washington Babylon’s creator, and he asked me to put together a list of my 10 favorite songs. Naturally, my top three are my own and you can listen to them all below, and also hear all my music on Soundcloud.

1/ Red October (and a few others from my SoundCloud.)

2/ Skrt.

3/ Pass That. [Editor’s note: Can’t find link on Sound Cloud, but it’s gotta be there. Been trying to reach Kevon.]

[Editor’s note: I lost my notes from my interview with Kevon so I’m just gonna finish this up with music the two of us discussed. Most of this was recommended by Kevon but I honestly can’t recall who recommended specific items. KS.]
