A: My name is Aaron. I go by Ace1Yoda.
Q: Where are you from?
A: Cincinnati, Ohio
Q: What do you do?
A: I’m an audio engineer, beatmaker,
Q: How long have you been making music?
A: I started out writing poetry and playing instruments in
grade school, then it transformed when I was about
9 into song format.
Q: Who’s your biggest inspiration?
A: My biggest inspiration has to be my parents. They had me
young and they took the resources they had and made something
out of nothing every single time.
Q: What genre of music do you create?
A: Well I’m a producer so I don’t focus on one particular genre,
I do whatever my mind and heart guides me to do. Although the
base structure of my songwriting is hip hop. So I fuse every
genre into my process.
Q: What was it like working with (collabs?)
A: I really don’t do many collabs. The very few I do have the process
was always fun because I make everything competitive LOL. Like I know
I’m gonna write a harder verse than anybody. Plus the blended styles
and sounds coming together to make a masterpiece is what I like
to see. So many artists sound the same and rap about
the same things today.

A: I have features with Aristotle Nice, Evil Eye, YBE Kancer, YG Kash,
Ravage, Aaron Masadonia(RIP) just to name a few.

and Kanye make together in person and Jadakiss.

with my cousin J. Keith.

A: A distribution deal I feel is more my speed because I’m not just an
artist. I have other artists who’s sound and product I’m responsible for.
Q: Who are your biggest supporters?
A: My family and loved ones.
Q: Where did your name come from?
A: Well I was Apocalypse(LOL), then Young Ace, then Ace Tha Great (LMFAO),
then Ace Beats but that was too generic. I needed something nobody had as
an IG or Twitter name and this pastor I was in contact with at the time
said “BOOM! Ace1Yoda” and it stuck.
Q: What are you currently working on?
A: Well I’m always cooking up new beats. Not really working on a particular
project or anything right now, I want to get the project I just
dropped heard around the globe.
