Eric “Coptic” Matlock was born and raised in Ghana, West Africa. He migrated to the U.S. at 13 and started producing music years later. He grew up in Newtown Accra and Awukugua in the Akuapim mountains. As a child, Coptic played the base drum for a local band in Newtown, which gave him the love of creating music.
He since has produced records for The Notorious B.I.G (If I Should Die Before I Wake & Living The Life), Puff Daddy aka “Diddy” (I Need A Girl), Jermaine Dupri (All That’s Gotta Go), Ma$e, KRS-One, Shyne and countless other successful artists on their platinum plus albums.
Coptic has also recently recorded songs with artists from all over the African continent for his Close To My Roots project. The project features collaborations between African and American artists. It’s a way of exposing African talent to the American market with most of the proceeds going to grassroots African charities.
