With years of support from industry insiders, and a story dating back 10+ years in the streets of the South Bronx. Ax received early support from Fat Joe, co signs by DJ Premiere, and shout-outs from Eminem in Complex magazine. His raw skill earned him a 7-0 undefeated winning streak in the classic Fight Club rap battles, until he ultimately lost the 50k cash prize to Professor Green. Falling back from the rap spotlight, AX, born Axell Leon, decided to focus on his kids, and personal life, while he put his music career on hold. Urging from his longtime friend Travie McCoy, and certain circumstances in his life, specific to his block and his family, led him back to the rap game, to tell the story of life, death and hip hop culture.
