First Friday at Pioneer in January features Indy hiphop acts Mathaius Young and Mula Kkhan.
Although born and raised in Ohio, Mathaius has since relocated to Indianapolis where he’s been busy pursuing both music and school. At just 20-years old, he’s become equally talented in both producing and rapping—although his first foray into hip-hop began with production at the age of 14, after being inspired by iconic producers like Pharrell and Timbaland. When he had trouble placing his beats with other artists, he decided to rap over them himself. He’s been chasing a rap career ever since, and in late 2015, signed to the NYC-based indie imprint Nomad Music Group.
