AJ, the One
AJ, the One is a music artist, art director, and media producer from Inglewood, CA. She embodies the city’s cultural duality — raised in the avenues and rooted in the matriarchal powers that hold them afloat.
AJ, the One started her music career as an undergraduate Media major at UC Berkeley. With her mother raised in Oakland, CA & the city like a second home to her, AJ quickly acclimated to the Bay Area artist scene and began gracing stages throughout the coasts of California.
As a self-proclaimed Goddess trap rapper, AJ, the One connects with her global audience through a shared connection to Black feminist theory, queer radical thought, global liberation movements, and the erotic. She values creative imagination, nonconventional thought, and those who champion their authentic selves.
