ABM What is your stage name? What inspired your stage name?
AOneHunnit: I go by the name of aOneHunnit, formerly A1. The name was actually given to me by my older brother who also does music. Since starting to do music I have ran into a few A1’s which resulted in me changing my stage name on my second album, self titled aOneHunnit. I sort of look at it as a level up! A1 now I’m A100.
ABM: What is your story in terms of music, when did you start making music?
AOneHunnit: I started writing music in middle school after my brother showed me how to structure out my rhymes. He inspired me to do my thing. I recorded my first vocals at the end of my freshman year and instantly fell in love with the process of putting together these tracks.
ABM: Where are you from? How did your upbringing in home city influence your career?
AOneHunnit: I’m from San Jose, CA. Growing up in such a diverse city inspired me in many ways. The different cultures and nationalities you come across really has its way of influencing you. Also being one of the younger kids in my big family I was always around older cousins and brothers who played music like, The Roots, Blackstar, JayLib, and of course those Bay Area slaps. When I started writing music in middle school was the days of the hyphy movement which put the Bay Area on the forefront of the music business, which ultimately put in my mind that if these artists from my area could do it, why can’t I?
ABM: Do you have any other projects in the works?
AOneHunnit: I just released my 6th studio album “Too Much Sauce” which is a collaboration album with one of my producers who is a absolute beast, DJ Eggroll. The project is available on all major platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, etc. 2020 I will be focusing more on singles rather than projects. But I also have a collab project with my boy Devien, which will be a follow up to our first project SJM Dream$. I also got a solo video with one of the All Bay Top Models Lindo Boo called “So Fine”.
ABM: Do you have any music videos you recently dropped?
AOneHunnit: In 2019 i dropped 4-5 videos some singles and some collabs. I just dropped my new video “Too Much” off the album “Too Much Sauce” feat Nieto MCH, produced by DJ Eggroll. Pushing Dope productions absolutely killed the video! So search AOneHunnit Too Much on YouTube to check out that new heat!! Very happy with the final product and look forward to working with Ayceephotography again!
