Samp has Now & Later






Matt Sampson, who performs as Samp, was born in Joliet Illinois but was raise in the Quad City area of Illionis and Iowa. After many of early days riding in that old Cadi with his granddad, Joe Sampson who was also a musician, listening to oldies and to his granddads old stories about him and his music group back in the day. it was then lil Samp knew he wanted to make music. years later Samp wrote his first record about not having his father in his life but still having a certain cool about himself growing up becoming a man.
Started in a group named L and Samp, teamed up with now popular DJ in the Quad Cities, L Murray. The two released two popular mixtapes before L Murray wanted to transition into a full time DJ, so Samp was forced to go solo. Since doing so, Samp released his first Mixtape in 2007 Samp " No Pain No Game" which was a nice start for his solo fame. Samp kept working and doing shows in small town clubs to build his up on the growing social media outlet Myspace. Years of recording in multiple studios and doing small shows cause Samp a little while to put together a body of work so there was a little hiatus but in 2012 Samp's Cocky Balboa series was born, with his first single "Give Me Something" proved that Samp was back in rare form. Popularity was gaining again, then Samp dropped the record "Black Tony Romo" right at the height of controversial professional quarterback career and Samp's mixtape Cocky Balboa took off.

The song created a huge buzz and followed by Samp's "Bleed" He became a Independent Titan in the Midwest musically. Cocky Balboa 2 is on the verge of being released with singles "Pop" featuring Paypuh "Go Hard" & "Improve" The mixtape is already proving to be a classic by an artist who continuing to show orginiality and stand out in a business that become more and more over saturated (hip hop) with biters and style jackers. Samp has Now and Later.
