Aziz, a first generation American, born to a Senegalese father and German mother, spent most of his life in New Hampshire before moving to Boston to study and play basketball at Brandeis University. Blessed with the gift of gab, Aziz ‘s ability to command a room became apparent at an early age, and from the onset, his older brothers pushed him to turn to hip hop as an outlet. Since 2010, Aziz has shared the stage with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Fabolous, J Cole, Far East Movement, Curren$y, Mac Miller, Big K.R.I.T, Smoke Dza, Stalley, and Chris Webby amongst others. His latest project “Tinderboxx” dropped in October of 2012 and received very positive responses from the hip hop community as well as featured on sites like & Aziz’s feet grounded in Hip Hop’s roots, lyrics filled with substance and truth, will only prove to be the shining light in an industry filled with empty hooks and sub-par beats.
