Aaron "AJ" John Matthew Brown

July 17, 1999 ~ April 12, 2021 (age 21)


Aaron John Matthew Brown, affectionately known as AJ, was born to Keith D. Brown and Maranna Moseley-Brown on July 17, 1999, at Andrews Air Force Base in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Aaron was a great kid and brought instant joy to all that surrounded him. Aaron was preceded in death by his grandfather, John Matthew Brown Jr.

Aaron was educated initially in Charles County School System located in Waldorf, Maryland, before relocating to Columbus, Georgia in 2015, and graduating with his high school diploma from Harris County High School in May 2017 in Hamilton, Georgia.

Aaron described in one word as an Entrepreneur, with a variety of talents. In high school, AJ started a sneaker business repairing Air Jordan’s making them look brand new. This was only the beginning for Aaron to showcase his talents to the world.

Aaron always had a love for the music industry and would practice his rap artistry in his room many late nights. Never in our wildest imagination, did we know this was truly the beginning of his rap career. Aaron’s stage name became Key 23 Da Don, the musical rap genius. Aaron soared and was so excited that his rap career was taking off to new heights. Aaron collaborated with various artists and successfully released his first album on April 20, 2019. Aaron performed at local venues, opened concerts throughout the United States for several musical artists, conducted radio interviews, mentored upcoming artists, and participated in freestyle Fridays on Instagram. Aaron used what was happening around him daily as inspiration for writing his music. Whether he was hanging out, driving around with his friends, or just spending time by himself, he strived to always be working on his music writing skills to improve upon his performances on stage for his fans.

But writing songs was not his only interests, he also applied his remarkable drive, determination, and fortitude to adapting and producing a clothing line with his partners, called 4EVA Solid, With this clothing line, full of fashionable colorful items, Aaron never shied away from the brighter colors in the spectrum. In direct opposition, he strived to introduce his fluorescently colored "Lemonade" brand clothing for males in January 2021, as a way of showing the world men can wear any color and still be fashionable.
