You Are Now a Witness
Ave Mack was born Rahmel Mack on January 27, in Brooklyn, NY. Ave's childhood in Brooklyn left him wanting more out of his life than what he saw around him. Always interested in music and rhymes, Ave began writing while still young, but thought that a life and career in music was an impossible dream. It wasn't until recent years that he began to realize what he really wanted out of life for himself and for those around him,and began focusing seriously on his music. His lyrical style and content is heavily influenced by his experiences growing up in the Red Hook projects, as well as by the people and friends that he has worked with musically; Diamond Ricelli, Trey Skoolz, Dj Dream, TerrorDome, Rising Sun & The GunPoets, Silvaa, Dj Sma, Krayze & Hot, Youngin, Champ, Jae Prodigy, Lil Jay,D-Rock, Eazy Thai Boy, Money Mars,Korey Bolden, Dj Davito, Yung Eddie,and Dj Illmatic.
