Aloe Blacc, a Grammy-nominated rapper and singer-songwriter, began his musical career after studying linguistics and psychology at the University of Southern California. His career took off with the hip-hop duo Emanon, and he later achieved solo success with hits like "I Need a Dollar" and "The Man." A recipient of RIAA diamond certification, his song “Wake Me Up” with Avicii, which he co-wrote, topped the charts in 103 countries and reached over two billion streams on Spotify and YouTube, respectively.

From the outset of his career, Blacc pledged to use his music for positive social transformation. His creative ethos, encapsulated in his A.I.M.

With the help of accomplished PhD scientists, the company has conducted promising research to identify medicinal candidates that block viruses from cellular binding, entry, and replication.
