Bio

A’leon was born Albert Martinez on July 17, 1979 in Brooklyn, New York. His family moved to the borough of Queens when he was 12 years old. It was here where he became involved with the streets.

The Beginning

A’leon began writing music after a childhood friend Deshawn (an aspiring rapper) was killed in a violent stabbing in a New York subway. A’leon promised to keep his friend’s dream alive. But life in the “Rotten Apple” would eventually take affect on a young A’leon as well. Trouble began for A’leon in 1998 when he caught his first felony charge for Robbery. He sentenced 1 year on New York City’s Riker’s Island for the crime, followed by 5 years probation. He was sent to live with his Uncle in Miami to carry out his term on probation.

The Music

After about 8 months in Miami, A’leon landed a deal with BIG Records, an independent label with distribution through Tommy Boy Records. Things ran smooth for about another 8 months before BIG Records CEO was indicted on several federal charges. The label couldn’t survive. A’leon still managed to book several gigs in South Beach, Miami before he eventually returned to New York disappointed.

More Trouble

A’leon spent less than one year back home before he was arrested again with a friend on weapon and drug possession charges. He was sentenced to 3 years in state prison where he spent 2 years before being released on parole.

A Brighter Future

Feeling like a new man, A’leon decided it was time to take his music career seriously. Going independent with his brother and the Gutta Fam, A’leon went on to release several mix-tapes, selling them out of the trunk of his car.
