  • 10-year-old YouTube cover-rapper Matty B (remember?) has just released “Back In Time,” a song that is going to be featured on the sountrack of some movie (Free Birds). The big leagues! The Matty B-ig leagues. The song is not meant for us, and that will make itself intensely apparent in the first few seconds of the video. Stay safe, Matty B. -FilmDrunk
