"Hell Up in Harlem"
Guest Authors: Azie Faison
Azie (pronounced "AZ") Faison Jr. was born in the Bronx, New York on November 10, 1964.His family relocated to the famed Sugar Hill section of Harlem, New York.While childhood friend Rich Porter began dealing drugs as early as 12 years old, Faison - a ninth-grade dropout - worked in a neighborhood dry cleaners. A Dominican cocaine supplier approached Azie about selling the drug. By the time he turned 19, Faison became a cocaine wholesaler of sorts in his Harlem district.In 1987, an attempt to rob Faison's stash house left 3 people dead and 3 seriously injured. He himself was shot nine times in the robbery attempt, but survived and left the drug game to embark on a mission to disavow his former life and steer youth away from the path he once chose. In 1989, he formed a rap group called MobStyle and released a solo album in 1991. Following the murders of his friend Rich Porter and his little brother Donnell Porter in 1990, Faison began working on a movie about his life which eventually became Paid in Full, which debuted in 2002. He also teamed up with street documentarian Troy Reed to produce the much-acclaimed documentary about his life called Game Over

Join me as I have a fireside chat with Travis Gammage aka T-DOGG, an African American gospel rapper. Prior to accepting God’s calling, T-DOGG performed with mainstream artists such as Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB), Trina (The Diamond Princess), Lil’ John, Dirty Boyz and Jagged Edge. In 2002, T-DOGG was signed to a local Miami independent label, Xela Entertainment. To say that T- DOGG’s career is an understatement. In 2005 T-DOGG started his own label called Show Money Entertainment. He produced a song with fellow Miami rapper Trick Daddy called Take it to the Streets and in 2007 he worked with Rick Ross on the track We Getting Money. Both opportunities were regional successes and proved that T-DOGG was a noted rapper, writer, and producer. In 2011 T-DOGG set out on yet another business venture and partnered with Travis Faison in the conjunction of GMF Music Group with Travis as the President and T-DOGG as the Vice President. T-DOGG grew a relationship with God that no money, person or entity could break. His wife and children\’s love for him assisted T-DOGG in seeing how God\’s love turned a bad situation into a good one and God gave T-DOGG a vision that led him to a new genre of music that allows him to take his passion down another path. The message in T-DOGG’s music is a testimony, inspiring, empowering, encouraging, motivational, and uplifting. T-DOGG recorded an album Changing Faces. He also released three singles titled Pray for Me, We Gonna Praise Him, and Wait for my Lord and more. He performed in concert with Fred Hammond, Marvin SappSapp, and Tye Tribbett. Gonder, Jr. T-DOGG is a phenomenal artist, writer, producer, entrepreneur and father. Stay tuned you don't want to miss this interview!!
