Harlem is a place where stars are born, and history is made. Its rich background spans the spectrum of culture from politicians to activists, athletes to music artists; however, the landscape in Harlem is rugged, and there are many different roads to the top.

Being from Harlem, A-Mafia is no stranger to the music scene. He is respected in most hip-hop circles and has done records with some of Harlem’s most notable artists including Cam’Ron, Jim Jones, Hell Rell, J.R. Writer and 40 Cal.
