My name is Aarash Benawa and my stage name is AA.RASH. I was born in Alexandria, VA and raised throughout Northern Virginia my whole life. I'm 16 and have aspirations of becoming a hip hop artist and entrepreneur. I started writing rhymes in 6th grade and took it seriously after 9th grade. I currently have a new mixtape out called "The Art Of Life Pt. 1" available for free download. My music is about my life; past, present and future. My goal is to attain a record deal by the age of 18 and officially start my journey in this music business. I have big goals I want to accomplish in the music and business worlds and I work hard to do so. I guarantee that I will make it to the top one day, because I am persistent and know what I want out of life.
