Biography

A.J. Crew is an American Hip-Hop artist and producer, born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He is known for his work with Naledge (of Kidz in the Hall fame) and charitable efforts towards furthering Sickle Cell Anemia research. He previously attended Columbia College Chicago and Roosevelt University.

Early life

Crew was born July 1, 1990, in Toledo, Ohio and grew up on the South End of the city. He was raised by his mother, attended E.L. Bowsher High School and graduated in the year 2008. It was then that he decided to move to Chicago, Illinois, to pursue music.

Career

Upon Crew's arrival to Chicago, Illinois, he attended Columbia College Chicago. There, he met Austin Neely, and together they released his street album, "Nightmares & Daydreams". The album was released on September 1, 2009, via RubyHornet.com, Dope Couture and Soundscape Studios, with owner Michael Kolar serving as executive producer.

The Chicago Reader featured a review of said album with Miles Raymer writing, "...on the album in question, Crew shows a lot of potential - he's got a talent for punch lines and a way of mixing long lyrical with short chopped lines."

In March 2012, Roosevelt University newspaper, The Torch, interviewed Crew about his charity work for Sickle Cell Anemia research. He donated half of the proceeds from promotional single, "Still Waiting", to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.

On May 1, 2013, A.J. released "The Reality Of It All". The project features a collaboration with Naledge from the indie hip-hop duo, Kidz In The Hall, entitled, "Nah Mean?".
