MT Motherlandboy was born in Paris, France on March 17, 1984. He grew up in Bamako, Mali and matured in Atlanta. He’s nothing short of an international prodigy. Motherlandboy first got interested in music when he was 12 years old by starting a group, the Nesby Brothers, with 3 other childhood friends. They were influenced by artists like 2 Pac, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Jay Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, NTM, MC Sollar, I AM, Lunatic (French Rappers).

Back then Motherlandboy was rapping in French which is his native language. At the age of 18 he moved from Mali to the United States. That’s when he had what he calls his calling, he found a renewed passion for Hip Hop; the music genre that influenced him so much growing up in one of the poorest countries on the planet. MotherlandBoy is no stranger to the struggle and the pain that ravages his continent as he witnessed it first hand for 12 years; it is felt in every bar he spits. His debut mixtape “Coming to America” is now available online ( and hosted by Atlanta’s own DJ AONE.
