Celebs Twitter About 7-year-old Rapper "MattyB"

ATLANTA--  Nothing like a few tweets to jump start your budding career.  Two famous names have posted comments about 7-year-old Matthew "MattyB" Morris generating new buzz about the aspiring rap artist.

Last month, 11Alive News introduced viewers to MattyB.  He's a first grader who lives in the suburbs of Atlanta and got interested in rapping by watching his older cousin Marshall write and mix music.

With Marshall's help, MattyB has created more than a dozen videos and some of them have "gone viral" getting more than 2 million hits on various websites.

Actor Ashton Kutcher tweeted about MattyB urging his 6 million or so followers to check out MattyBRaps.com.

Gossip Guru Perez Hilton also tweeted about MattyB and Hilton himself has more than 2 million followers.

11Alive News talked to MattyB's father Tuesday night who had heard about Kutcher's text.  He said it was the talk at the dinner table.

"We're excited that so many people are enjoying his videos. He has so much fun putting them together," Blake Morris said.
