His name is Damion “Damizza” Young. You may not have heard of him but you may have heard of some careers he launched, such as Eminem & Jay-Z. Or of careers he revived, such as Snoop Dogg & Mariah Carey. After being in the music industry for more than 25 years Damizza is ready to share how his music skills brought artists to life, and how those same skills almost took his own life.
Damizza has worked in nearly every area in music but he is most recognized as a producer for hits such as “Crybaby” and “I Still Believe” by Mariah Carey. He has also produced for other renown artists such as Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and even Korn! But all this success came with a price. His substance addictions caused his life to spin out of control.
The book is filled with candid stories, one of the most compelling is, how he managed to have Snoop Dogg perform in NY with Jay-Z just three months after Biggie’s death in hopes of squashing the East Coast/West Coast beef. Because of this, Irv Gotti credits Damizza as the person who “built a bridge” in bringing the East and West together. Some of the other intriguing stories are; his time backstage with Michael Jackson in Korea, his conversation with Biggie just hours before the star was shot, and how he single-handedly convinced Snoop and Dre to agree to “The Chronic 2001”.
The book has also led to subsequent legal issues due to a tabloid uproar concerning his romantic relationship with Mariah Carey, which was never his intent. Since then, Mariah has read the chapter that involves her and told Damion that, “she doesn’t have a problem with it.”
When asked why he felt this book was important, Damizza had this to say, “I want people to understand the truth of what they’re getting into when they’re seduced by the excess of this business. I’ve been blessed to be in the room when some of the biggest decisions in music were made, and I believe that it’s my duty to pass these stories along. What means the most for me is to show the human reality of the music business.”
Damizza also announced that he is offering the book free of charge, in order to disprove allegations that he’s doing this for profit. It is co-written by world-renown author J. Marshall Craig and will be available on December 14th through www.DamizzaBook.com
It reminds me of a car accident–how you never understand the consequences of your actions until its too late to go back. You can’t help but feel kinda stupid, too. You never figured life would happen faster than your own capacity to react to it, and when it does, well, Conflict.
