Born in Massachusetts and native of Marlboro MA, A.O. is the long awaited “breath of fresh air” the soul of hip hop has needed for its revival! The initials A.O. represent his real name; Aaron Odum. He firmly believes that a true artist is a portrayal of oneself, therefore he goes by his family known nickname King A.O.
His obsession for lyrical precision and creativity comes from his extensive knowledge of old school Hip-hop artists like Nas, Talib Qweli, Mos Def, Common, Eminem, AZ, Cannibus & Busta Rhymes. He makes it a point to study his peers that challenge him lyrically, like J. Cole, Drake & Lupe, particularly on his predilection of music with purpose in an industry of sellouts and gimmicks. A.O. started writing lyrics in the 2nd grade and has mastered the art and developed a technique that shows versatility and sophisticated content. These attributes are key to universal acceptance of the HipHop genre.
His mission is to make HipHop a global icon of positive motivation instead of a genre infused with negative connotations. HipHop heavily influences our younger generation and should be used to convey positive messages that can give solace in time of depression and need. True artists should never have to pose as someone they aren’t, just for record sales or material gains. Music is meant to uplift and give a message for the betterment of the world as a whole.
Up until now A.O. has written, recorded and mixed all of his mixtapes starting from “The 1st Chapter” to “Secrets In Plain Cite”. A.O. has progressed in quantum leaps, not only as a lyricist but as song writer. Upon listening to just a verse from this talented young artist, you will observe that he has developed complex guidelines and structure to his content and delivery. A.O.’s full capacity has yet to be reached and is a virtual time bomb waiting for the perfect second to be unleashed.

Set to an incredibly infectious beat, Bl’eve Brown’s “Finesse” is the perfect introduction to the New Jersey-based rapper. The Jamaican-flavored Harlem native enlisted the production skills of Platinum Beat Service to craft the beat and frequent collaborator Jimmy 2Shoes to throw in some extra vocal help.
“What does it take to go viral, fall back and make a comeback in a region where the natives have a bad habit of all sounding the same?” the press release reads. “If you’re Bl’eve Brown, the answer is simple. It takes talent to stand apart, a hunger for more success and when on the mic? A touch of ‘Finesse.’”
The track comes ahead of his forthcoming project, Cosmosis, which is expected to arrive sometime in the near future.
