My name is Matthew Watford AKA Wattson/Wattson803. I’m an Independent, Hip-Hop Recording Artist in Cayce-West Columbia, SC & the Owner of WATFORD RECORDS LLC! More importantly, I’m the Husband to my Best Friend & the Father of four beautiful children. In 2010, at the age of 14, I began studio recording and performing live at nightclubs, venues, events, & social gatherings. While I’ve only been active within the Music Industry for 10 years, I’ve practiced writing music since around 7 years old. As always, I’ll continue pushing forward in pursuit of my Music Career, regardless of the challenging obstacles I may encounter. Ultimately, to serve as living proof to my children that you can successfully accomplish your dreams through determination, dedication, & persistency. My upcoming EP is currently in production to be followed by my first Album, “Family Man”. I’m introducing an entirely new Sub-Genre to the Rap/Hip-Hop Music Industry in these next two projects. Included, a direct reflection of life before, during, & after my evolution into crime-free parenthood within the painful, unforgiving trenches of modern day poverty.

Music is now, has always been, and will forever be the burning passion inside my mind, heart, and soul. My wife & my four children are #1 in everything I do... My music is #1.5. If not for this music, I wouldn’t be alive & breathing today.
