Aasim - Spit Your Game inteveiw

It's a rainy New York afternoon and Aasim the Dream is holed up in Daddy's House, Bad Boy Records' storied Manhattan studio. It's here, in these hallowed confines, where the career's of the Notorious B.I.G., Ma$e, Black Rob and the LOX all started. This is also where Aasim has written some of his best material—for Sean Combs, that is. While the average hip-hop fan may not be familiar with the Jamaica, Queens native's name, they've certainly heard his work as a ghostwriter for Diddy's most recent album, Press Play.

Sean C. & LV help Diddy on "Press Plays"

Lately, it seems that the names Sean C. & LV are everywhere—from Diddy shouting “LV, Sean C.” a million times on his summer anthem “Gettin Off” and Fat Joe rapping “LV” on the punch line of his latest “We Gettin Money” to MTV recently declaring LV a “Fire Starter” and Sean C. overseeing all A&R for Remy Ma's album. The production duo has recently worked themselves into a production frenzy with production requests from countless labels and artists.

Aasim

They say real bad boys move in silence. Aasim is no exception to this rule. Already making waves through out New York's underground circuit, Aasim has been quietly positioning himself to become a leader for rap's new generation. And it's about to pay off.

A product of Southside Jamaica, Queens, Aasim was poised to be among the hip-hop ruling class when he picked up a microphone at the age of 12. Influenced by Queens' luminaries such as LL Cool J, Nas as well as the late greats, Notorious B.I.G. and 2 Pac, Aasim style of rhyme is as complete as it comes in this day and age. Explicit with his words, yet aggressive in delivery, Aasim can get raw with the grittiest rappers in the streets, yet prolific enough to garner the respect of hip-hop thinking man.

While new to many, Aasim is no stranger to the rap game. He garnered a reputation as a prodigy when at the age of 17 he signed to Loud Records as part of the labels second wave of new school acts that included Dead Prez and the late Big Pun. Too young to even enter a club, Aasim honed his skills by watching the late Big Pun records his classic debut, Capitol Punishment. It was during those sessions that Aasim learned the ins and outs of song structure.

But right as Aasim was prepping for his inevitable debut, Aasim was entagled in a legal bind that prevented him from advancing further into his career. Discouraged by the situation he began to feel sour towards the game. Worn out from the bullshit, Aasim eventually disappeared from the rap circuit.

Making matters worst, his home of Loud records closed for good. Yet Aasim stayed in touch with former A&R Sean C and production partner LV (Fat Joe, Terror Squad). Together the 3 started working on new songs developing his song writing and production talent. He reemerged again this past year, bolder, wiser, words all the more sharper. With his manager, Kendell aka Young Sav in tow, Aasim aligned himself with Sean C and LV's Grind Music Inc and rapidly began to make up for lost time by providing opening drops for Fat Man Scoop on New York's Hot 97. He also made appearances on radio shows for DJ's Clue and K-Slay as well as unleashed memorable freestyles on mix-tapes for heavyweight mix DJ's such as Green Lantern, Big Mike and Absolut.

His perseverance paid off 2004 when Aasim was chosen by Puff Daddy to lead the next generation of Bad Boy.

Aasim on 25 To Life Soundtrack

Aasim and Jae Millz deliver “God With The Flow.” The Queens rapper teams up legendary NYC battle rapper for a slick blast of Harlem juice. That both of these cats have been touted as the next big things but still have yet to drop albums makes the track a wonderful appetite whetter.
