A-Wax is a rapper from Pittsburg, CA.[1]

Early life

A-WAX was born and raised in the small, industrial town Pittsburg, CA about 30 miles northeast of San Francisco. Pittsburg was hit hard like most inner city communities in the 1980’s with the Crack epidemic and A-WAX would be one of its many contributors. After countless run-ins with the local police and being kicked out of every school possible A-WAX’s mom shipped him off to the Pacific Northwest by way of the Seattle-Tacoma area. While gangbanging all but passed the S.F. Bay Area up, Seattle was hit particularly hard and soon enough A-WAX would be pledging his allegiance to a flag different then the one you find in a school house…a red one.[2]

Konvict Muzik

A chance meeting with Konvict Muzik C.E.O. (and brother to music superstar Akon), would land A-WAX a highly coveted spot on the Konvict Muzik roster which already includes stars Akon & T-Pain. Shortly thereafter, A-WAX signed on co-management with street legend and entertainment guru T. Rodgers who is best known as a co-founder of the Bloods turned humanitarian, author, activist, producer, consultant and actor.[3]
