Hip-Hop Artist, AJ Mamba Releases Musical Ode to His 30th Birthday
On December 21, 2018, AJ Mamba turned 30 years old. On that day, he released his very first single publicly, "This is 30" as a music video on his YouTube Channel. Since then, the track (produced by Thomas Jay of Rotation Records in Norristown, PA & member of the rock band, The Things We Were) has grown into the spark of AJ Mamba's journey into self-reflective hip-hop.
"This is 30" serves as the genesis of AJ Mamba's melodic, yet unflinching style of wordy rap, inspired by a wide mix of inspiration by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Logic, Childish Gambino, Jonwayne and Mac Miller, while speaking what he perceives as his truth without any apologies to anyone that may disagree.
Now, signed to Estabrook Road Records as of October 2020, AJ Mamba is rapidly approaching his 32nd birthday. The re-release of this track under his record label is to serve as a reminder of where AJ Mamba came from, and the new music video released on 12/18, with the single, demonstrates AJ visiting various places from his past, including his childhood home in Blackwood, NJ. It was the first time (since 2006) that AJ was back in that cul-de-sac.
All with the idea of acknowledging the past, in order to move forward into the future. and with an upcoming EP release in late January 2021, AJ Mamba and the Hip-Hop world has a bright future to look forward to.
"I wanted to challenge myself. We are the sum of our cumulative experiences, year by year. All I wanted to do was have an honest conversation with myself, learn from it, and move forward with my head held high; ready to take on the next phase of my life." - AJ Mamba.
