Aaron was born in November 1989 and is also in the singing business. He appeared on MTV’s “My Super Sweet Sixteen” several years ago in 2015, as the epitome of the spoiled rich kid. In the show, his parents lavished him with gifts and threw an expensive birthday party, where some of the most popular rappers at that time performed.
Bad Boy Records owner, P. Diddy, is Aaron’s godfather. Once in time, Aaron gave P. Diddy a run for his money when he stepped up his A&R game to successfully win over an artist who both he and his godfather were trying to grab.
Today, Aaron is determined to build his own name without leaning on his parents’ legacy and he’s now flourishing in his career. He has been an A&R at Epic Records ever since 2013 for a two-year span.
