"Ajent O is a lot of things," says MC Siege, a fellow member of the 12 Monkeys hip-hop collective and labelmate of the Buffalo rhymer. "He's smooth. He's got a laid-back delivery. He covers too many topics to define him as one thing. He's polished. Everything he comes with is polished." Ajent is just one of the battle-tested rappers at Kings of the Iron Mic, an ongoing convergence of Cleveland talent and friends now in its fifth year and still going strong.
