The multi-cultured-talented rapper and producer, Aayron, from New Jersey is making moves to solidy his place as one of Rap’s new breed. Inspired by Phonte of Little Brother, Pusha T, Mos Def and Pharrell Williams he is branding his own sound.
He has been rapping and making beats since he was 5 years old. Has had various deals with independant labels and a development/distribution agreement with Def Jam. But he hasn’t quite found a home in the game just yet.
HipHopLEAD: For starts where did the name come from?
Aayron: The name AayRon is just a variation of my first name Aaron. When I was younger my Grandmother used to call me A-Ron. I wanted something more compatible with my real name.
HipHopLEAD: How old are you exactly?
Aayron: 21 years old… I’m actually surprised I’m sober right now (laughs)
HipHopLEAD: Is there an age that’s too young or too old in this hip hop shit?
Aayron: Nah… it’s about your knowledge and your heart. I been doing this music shit since I was 5 years old. Performing too.
HipHopLEAD: You make it pretty evident you rep real hip hop with honest verses. No one has really made a huge buzz lately while being a true artist. Do you think being “true emcee” makes it harder for you to get your shine on?
Aayron: I mean…it depends on who’s backing you. Everybody can relate to real shit. It’s all about how you wanna promote ya self..its about how open do you wanna be wit yo audience. So to answer the question.. I don’t think so.
HipHopLEAD: Why is it you think the south continues to make a heavy noise, and a lot of New Jersey artists don’t go on a mainstream level any more?
Aayron: Man, the south is killing it right now. The 808 wave is here. And New Jersey artists are scared of change. If you can spit.. Kck (don’t respell) yo shit to a “south beat” to me. Music is music, I don’t see coasts. And New jersey artists don’t wanna switch it up. So focused on being real. If you real they gonna feel it regardless.
HipHopLEAD: What obstacles and real life experiences made you come up with “My Last”?
Aayron: Man, I wrote that after jus thinking about the original concept of the song. And I feel like.. that’s me. I didn’t get to my end result, but that’s me. So I been living that, which only made it easier to write. I jus had to get clever with it.
On “My Last” you spit, “You’re raps is ok,but I’ma lil bit better/ way more fresher with a lil less effort/ and I don’t chase hoes, but I’ma Go Getta (get her)/. With slick lines like that does it bother when you see a rapper on the tv with a major deal who couldn’t formulate a rhyme scheme like that to save there lives?
No it doesn’t. It bothers me when I see the ones who can kck those same style lines on and not me… like a Drake, J.Cole, Asap Rocky or a Big Sean. I feel like…. I can compete with those niggas lyrically and swag (for lack of a better word) wise.
HipHopLEAD: What mixtapes or albums have you released to date?
Aayron: (laughs) Well aside from my Pre – Tape “Oh S#!t, He Can Rap”. A bunch of nonsense that I don’t want anyone to find. (laughs)
HipHopLEAD: What is your next planned release gonna be?
Aayron: My last mixtape.. Bright Future Dark Past. This is my final hour mixtape. Tomorrow aint promised so if I was to go tomorrow this would be my story and me and my team are releasing a mixtape under the Group name “The 96′ Bulls”. Called Six Rings, Kck Kings. That is because I see us talent wise and brotherhood wise as the greatest team ever.
HipHopLEAD: What is your favorite record you have ever recorded to date?
Aayron: Ahhh. Well I kinda have this alter ego ..the other style of my talents. His name is TheParty which short for LifeofTheParty and that’s my progressive, digital, synthy, soul sound. I’m kinda singing but I’m definitely using my voice as an instrument. So those songs are equally as fun to make..but as a rapper I would say a track off my upcoming tape called “2knd Beers” because it’s a Tupac beat and a life I really live.
HipHopLEAD: It’s a known fact that Mos Def and Pusha T were some of your influences to get into music. They are renowned lyricists and some of the best to ever do it. One thing they share is in common is never reaching the commercial success they deserved. With that said are you in it to win it? Or for the love of the game?
Aayron: I mean all Mos needed was one great record to pay his bills and that was Ms. Fat Booty. That’s still getting spins. And Pusha’s time is coming.. I have ties to GOOD Music and what I’ve been hearing … they about to get it. But me.. It’s a lil bit of both. Simply cuz I got the talent but this is my art.
HipHopLEAD: Any features worth mentioning on the upcoming projects?
Aayron: My homie Jay Oliver, who is signed to Interscope Records. He’s out doing his thing in LA he will be a star this year no doubt, Adubb of Finally Famous if you heard of Big Sean, Adubb’s name shouldn’t be too far behind. Aside from that… we’ll jus have to see!
HipHopLEAD: Your team told us about the labels you dealt with before. How come things never panned out with any of them?
Aayron: Ummm..well with most of them its the same thing… I’m giving so much to these labels and I’m not getting any support nor respect back. And with the major situation.. I wasn’t free to do me.. Honestly I don’t want a deal..I jus wanna do it my way. Well the KckWay.
HipHopLEAD: If by some chance music doesn’t pan out for you what will you be doing 5 years from now?
Aayron: Umm.. I’m not sure. I mean I can always get work as a producer so it would be something along those lines.
HipHopLEAD: Here at HipHopLead.com we like to ask our features some questions that really are out of the norm. We do this because it gives the fans a broader outlook on you.So lets get it cracking …. Why the hell would Don Cornelious kill himself after reaching so many goals and at the age of 75?
Aayron: Pussy! Either he ran out of viagra or he jus can’t get none anymore. Either way that shit would drive you crazy. So I chalk it up to that. (Laughs)
HipHopLEAD: Being a dope East Coast lyricist how do you feel about Wacka Flocka and Future as hiphop artists?
Aayron: I love Flocka. He’s actually one of my favorites. He loves to party and have fun. That’s what its all about for me.. I’m 21 years young, living life dumb.
HipHopLEAD: Who are your favorite Jersey artists of all time?
Aayron: None… Haha sike. We’ll since he lives in NJ I wanna say Diggy Simmons that kid is on fire. I Rock with my homie Tsu Srf we’ve kckd it b4 in the studio he’s a cool guy when he’s high. I got a cousin named Trife he is hands down one of the best NJ artists out here. His music is so potent and real. And he supports me like none other. Their are a few more artists I jus mention them my homies Tuffguy & Broskiiman, this young kid with drive named EscoFresh. And of course Joe Budden
HipHopLEAD: Should Obama be re- elected this November?
Aayron: He sung Al Green at the Apollo. He’s smooth for that (laughs). I think he’s doing everything in his power so.. Yea… Re-elect!
