If I asked you if you knew whoJay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West, The Gorillaz, and RZA were you might say, “Of course,” but inadvertently if I ask you do you know who Aaron LaCrate is chances are you would draw a blank. I’m here to let you know that if you know Aaron LaCrate has worked with each of the artists listed before at several capacities whether it was booking Jay-Z’s first tour shows, DJing for RZA or Kanye West, and/or fitting Eminem and Rakim in the latest Milkcrate Athletics gear, Aaron LaCrate has done it all.
Originally, from Baltimore, MD he was a kid full of hustle in Mob City USA. At the age of 10-years-old, Aaron LaCrate was already DJing house parties, raves, and underground shows. From there he submerged himself deep into the hip-hop and Baltimore Club Music scene. He’s more than just a DJ, producer, and graffiti artist. He’s a 360 businessman on a mission to conquer everything that he puts his mind too. Aaron LaCrate is also noted with, being one of the few pioneers of the Baltimore Club Crack and Baltimore Club Gutter music wave and he wears that on his sleeve like a badge of honor.
Immediately, upon meeting Aaron LaCrate for the first time I knew there was something different about him in a good way. He moved with a purpose like an old school gangster, he constantly observed everything around him looking for the next move, and he appeared to still be a student although he’s close to becoming a master of the game. It just so happens that the day I got the call to link up with him I had a blistering fever and had just taken some Nyquil. This would be proven to be a bad idea as I almost sleep through doing this interview but somehow I woke up with a numb face and made it out to link with this extraordinary fella.
This is a brief part of an interview I did with Aaron LaCrate when he made a real quick short stop in Maryland while handling some business with his Milkcrate Athletics brand and returning home to DJ a live party at the Paradox before it shuts down. In this 10 minute video, Aaron LaCrate gives you an insider conversation as to who he is, where he’s from, and what he’s been able to do in his career thus far. Definitely be sure to press play and check it out.
