The Electric City (Scranton, PA) was once known for exciting, ambitious, and innovative ideas in the coal industry as well as early rail transportation in the early to mid 1900’s. Here in the new millennium once again we see The Electric City showing the same exciting and innovative ideas that led the way to success in the past.. This time it’s in the music and entertainment field, due largely (to pun intended) to the efforts of Marco Matis. In 1988 in Scranton (The Electric City) Pa unknown to most arrived a child with great dreams and goals. Seemingly from birth Marco Matis loved the hip-hop culture, music, and fashion. From listening to artists such as Biggie Smalls, NAS, Big Pun it inspired him to his true love, music. While attending West Scranton high school he was the funny, chubby kid that kept everyone laughing, it was here he was given the nick name KOOLAiD. However even then you could tell there was a something special about Marco (KOOLAiD) Matis it was his determination, work ethic and loyalty. , Traits that is uncommon in todays up and coming artists.
