ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Remember Hip-Hop? Remember the music before the “bling”, before the pimp swagg, before the music got lost in the image. Remember the Hip-Hop that was an instrument of social change? Remember the music that stood at the foundation of expression before players, gangsters, and video vixens took over? Remember the artists that had the world moving to beats that spoke of social prejudice and injustice. Remember that Hip-Hop? If you don’t remember music like the one I just described—let me introduce you to Matthias aka "Mr 16 Bars".

Matthias was born in North Philadelphia in 1979. He first went by the rap name Wiz Kid. He later dropped it and took on the more spirtual name of Matthias after the disciple who replaced Judas in Biblical writings and teachings. Matthias tells it like it was—and—is; by interweaving reality, smooth stylistic flow with beats that keep your head nodding. In his latest cd, "The Forgotten", Matthias takes social awareness to another level as he speaks about his multiple deployments as a soldier, and his experiences in day to day urban life . When interviewed by Holly M., a staff writer for "Thecheers.org", Matthias was asked, "Out of all the genres of music...why hip hop? Matthias' reply was very simple, " Hip-hop is one of the few genres of music where you can mix other genres along with it and it still keeps its own identity." If you are wondering what makes Matthias so different from so many other new artist all you have to do is just hear tracks like "Shine On", "No Fear", & "Combat Stress", and all your questions would be answered. I guess the biggest difference between Matthias and other artist is that he believes that he has a moral obligation to speak out against things that are wrong and unjust. Other artists are just content with being entertainers, while an artist such as Matthias, wants to challenge people as individuals with the hope to bring the best out of them!
