Matt has expressed that he and his brother have some clear differences, including Matt’s close following of the Christian faith.

However, John’s Instagram page contains more spiritual pictures containing mandalas and tarot symbols.

“My brother and I have completely different religious beliefs, and I don’t love him any less. I would never want that to be something that kept me from being with somebody,” Matt told ET.

Both men also have very different career paths. While John is a rapper, Matt is a businessman with a non-profit.

Even though the brothers don’t appear in many social media pictures together, Matt claims John is one of the people who know him better than anyone.
