Who would have thought that Action Bronson wouldn’t be the only white rapper rocking a fully caved Red Beard, think again; because the Queens based emcee, Aaron Cohen is clearly making a statement. The Seattle Born lyricist has already stepped foot into the international spectrum of Hip-Hop and is incontestably establishing himself Worldwide.

Aaron is set to drop his new EP (late April/early May), you can catch Aaron with partner in crime ABGOHARD aka the Ugly Boyz, that started making a lot of noise with their second video off their project: “Right Here”. The song “Right Here”captures the grimy yet beautiful side of Queens. Its intent was to be dark, mainly designed to let people know that they, [Ugly Boyz] are right here and not going anywhere!
