Named for a diminutive biblical hero, AIME lends a gigantic presence to the mix as the author and lead orator of The Book of David, a rap epic that spans three chapters and boasts production from Dameadelphia, the mad scientist behind Tiny Room for Elephants and standout productions for The Roots.

Derived from a drunken post-birthday rant about AIME’s lingering fear of failure and Jay Z’s seminal Reasonable Doubt era, the eponymous series of forthcoming projects from the Queens-bred, Philly based MC strips the formality of rap titles, filler tracks and posturing from the equation to dish up a rhythmic dose of realism.

Couched in the ubiquitous struggle that plagues most millennials and fuels the “turn-up” culture that keeps them raging into the wee hours of the morning, The Book of David is a crystalline ode to the quarter life crisis that necessarily deals with the “shit or get off the pot” urgency in the maturation of an MC doing it without a major label deal.

I've never seen time as linear, but I also didn't always believe in destiny. Now I have one and I walk through everyday without a question. Not that life doesn't throw its stones in the road but there are constants in an equation that has far too many variables. My life changed when I made that equation easier. A passionate bud that I always had for music blossomed in the most awkward way. While doin laundry I randomly felt compelled to write a song. I had written poetry in the past but this was a song. For the first time I found melodies that I loved as much as words and together they formed a chorus that spoke to me. That moment changed everything and a spark lit in my mind that's now grown into a forest fire. I want that fire to spread as far as it possibly can, just to watch it glow. Its hard to explain...

I love music. I'll literally give my life for it. I figuratively already have. One day the world will hear the whole story. It's full of struggle, insanity, rage and unorthodox focus under constant distraction.
