VIDEO: “Sidelines” – Aaron Cohen (dir. by Jesse Diamond)

Aaron Cohen’s recent EP Home Less finds the Southend native aligning his sharp, nihilistic barbs with beats that trend low-end, boom-bap and crawling. The rapper has definitely found his sweet spot. “Sidelines” is the opening track on Home Less and it’s appropriately grimy like the LA River. Video directed by Jesse Diamond and song produced by JG Beats.

AUDIO: Home Less – Aaron Cohen

Aaron Cohen - Home Less

A number of years ago Aaron Cohen moved from Seattle to Queens with a beard and a hip-hop dream. Hear more of his story in the 206UP x 28HUNDRED interview with the rapper from last summer.

Home Less is Cohen’s latest album, an EP that carries his particular low-key stunting grime into deeper territory and highlights the reasons why the MC is hitting even on an international level. And check out the video for “Booyakah” featuring Los Angeles psychedelics expert Alexander Spit.
