Singer/songwriter Aaron Knight has just released his first official single called “OG” off his upcoming untitled project.
Knight was born to a low class family in Newburgh NY to parents suffering from addiction so ultimately he was raised by his grandma in Sunnyside, Queens. His first passion actually was Basketball, which he was very good at in fact. He helped perennial powerhouse Christ The King win a City and state Championship. He soon then fell out of love with the game and fell in love with the music.
Knight was always an avid poetry writer, so that combined with his rapping, singing and harmonizing made him an untouchable force. He’s created his own sound by infusing hip-hop with elements of pop, trap, and new age R&B. Through his originality, Aaron is able to create music for a diverse group of people; from young, old, to a variety of races.
“I was in the studio and I told my engineer I been doing this music thing since I was 17,” Aaron says. “And now I feel like a OG. But in all reality I ain’t even a 90s kid!”
His #weknighted movement has inspired countless fans to go out and live everyday like its their last, and never give up on the dream what ever it may be.
