A-Mafia is a hip hop artist from the streets of Harlem, New York. Currently affiliated with the Dipset movement A-Mafia is looking to rep that infamous eagle and follow in the steps of current Diplomat members Juelz Santana, Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Hell Rell, Freekey Zekey, 40 Cal & J.R. Writer and rise to the top.
Born Abdul Holmes on August 16, 1980 and raised in Harlem, A-Mafia quickly was drawn into the rap game by the revolutionary lyrics of Public Enemys Chuck D, the lyrical complexity of hip hop legend and microphone fiend Rakim, the smoothness of the innovator & Harlem legend Doug E. Fresh and the realness of the Dirty Souths Project Pat. With the inspiration of these
artists burning inside him, A-Mafia first began to sharpen his freestyle skills in 1995. However, it was a year later while being incarcerated for the first time on a robbery one charge, and serving 1 to 4 year sentence, when A-Mafia began to hone his writing skills. As quickly as A-Mafia was drawn into the rap game, his transition into the street game proceeded at much more of a rapid pace. A-Mafias dedication to the grind of the street life led to numerous incarcerations with charges ranging from larceny and gun possession, to felony drug charges. After over seven years of going in and out of the system, A-Mafia swore he would never return. He decided to take his experience gained on the streets of Harlem and put it in words. He brought these words to life and entitled his premier album, "Moneys the Issue". He has not looked back since. A-Mafia continued to shake up the underground on several Purple City projects. After two videos and a slew of Purple City bangers on the mix-tape circuit.

A-Mafia joined up with Duke Productions and the Diplomat Family. He appeared on Dipset albums.
