Aaron Profitt, better known by his stage name “Uno-One” (Underground’s Notorious One-Overcame Nearly Everything), is an American hip-hop artist from Chichester, Pennsylvania. At the age of 13, he began writing in the comfort of his grandparent’s basement as a way to release his inner feelings and he found it to have therapeutic benefits. He first began rapping and recording himself by over dubbing cassette tapes on a karaoke machine.

Since his very first recordings, anyone who has listened to his music knows that he has a special talent full of raw emotions and an articulated rhyme form. As a non-fiction author, he finds the inspiration to write from his surrounding environment and life experiences, coining his genre as “Reality Rap”. After witnessing numerous tragedies, he knows that every verse could be his last so he puts it all on the line every time he steps into the recording booth.

He established One Track Mind EntertainmenT (O.T.M.) with childhood friend/manager, Steve“Lil’ Bunk” Bunk. Courtesy of O.T.M., he has released 5 mixtapes since 2004 and his latest effort, “Mixed Emotionz” was released August 7, 2012. The mix-tape is comprised of fan favorites: “Just Breath”, “All Falls Down”, and “Warning,” which displays his talent to tell cinematic stories, the ability to advocate the youth, and also his lyrical versatility. “All Falls Down” is currently in rotation on college radio stations throughout the region. Uno-One is currently working on his debut EP with a release date TBA.

UNO-ONE:  I have been through a lot in life and I feel that music is a good way to vent and tell my story.

IAA: What are your songs about?

UNO-ONE:  Real life! I lost my mother to drug addiction before I turned 21. I never knew my father, buried my older brother and lost a lot of my friends to jail and death. I’ve been through a lot and seen a lot.My music is pretty much based off of my experiences and emotions. You will never catch me rap about things I haven’t lived through or witnessed firsthand.When you hear my music it’s like I’m talking directly to you. Press play and come into my world!

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

UNO-ONE:  I’m the other side of the coin. A lot of other artists tend to fabricate or glorify

negative things. Just being a real person, I tell it the way it really is. I make a conscious effort to distance myself away from what everybody else is doing musically.

I am his cousin and i am 39 years old, I seen him struggle through life and seen what he went through, loosing his mother (my aunt), his brother, our grandparents that where always there for him. Groing up with this bright talented drawler and muscian and to see him overcome his problems in life. I will always try to be there for him (my little buddy) incourage him in anyway. His music is the trueth and its all about life. Aarron good luck in everything u do.

  21. One of the realist there is. Tells a true story with true emotion. This is genuine hip hop at its finest. Do yourself a favor and get on board.

  22. Hey Arron man keep rocking the music and stay strong in everything you do.Love hearing it and the way you bring it out.Your one and a kind man.

  23. I formerly worked with Aaron..he’s the type of person you don’t forget. No bs, no gossip, just keeps it real. He’s the kind of person you just feel comfortable around. I’m proud of Arron and how far he’s come and I can’t wait to see him at the top, if anyone I know deserves it, he does.

  24. I have seen Aaron grow into an outstanding artist. This guy has so much talent to offer to the Hip-Hop community. It is great to see him gets some recognition. Their are not many out there that can rap with depth of emotion that he can. The way he has been able to channel what he has been through into something that people can feel and understand is amazing. Flat out, if you have been sleeping on Aaron’s music, you need to wake up!Dude has real lyrics and stories that even someone who does not like rap can appreciate!

  25. You have worked so hard for so long and didn’t let anyone or anything knock you off your square! I’m so proud of you! Your talent runs so deep and you music gives me chills when I hear it. I can’t think of anyone else who deserves to heard more then you! I love ya and I hope, no I know that you will keep movin up!

  26. Aaron, very well said. The article was hard to read, since I’ve watch you go through some of it. I admire everything you have accomplished and don’t won’t to sound like everyone else, but I am SO PROUD of you and everything you have done for yourself. I miss you! Congrats!

  27. This is one Motherfucker you can’t keep down!!! I’ve seen him hit the bottom and bounce back higher each time! He has taken every negative life has thrown at him and turned it into a positive! Keep up the good work Fam!!!!

  28. Keep doing ya thing homie….I appreciate the realness in ur rhymes…no bs filler…hip hop needs more true emcees…big ups dog
