There Is a 9-Year-Old Rapper on the Billboard Charts

Look out, Justin Bieber fans: there's a new rapper who's half Bieber's age and poised to dominate the hearts of children the world over. His name is Matty B.

He's from Duluth, GA, and this week he made it onto Billboard's Social 50 chart, which measures fan activity on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and iLike. His YouTube channel has over 100 million video views, which might all be from 9-year-old girls.

Unfortunately for those 9-year-old girls, according to Matty B's Wiki page, he's in a relationship.

His new video, which came out a week ago (watch below), already has 1.37 million views. Try not to feel bad for the professional dancers in the background, who've been plugging away at this for their whole lives and find themselves dancing behind a kid holding a microphone bigger than his head.
