Jason Lewis (born September 29, 1970, in New York, New York), better known by his stage name AMG, is a rapper from Cleveland, Ohio.

Career

AMG is known for his sexually explicit lyrics, and most notably for songs like "Bitch Betta Have My Money" and "Jiggable Pie". The British electronica group Hardknox later sampled "Bitch Betta Have My Money" on their single, "Who's Money?", which was originally sampled by AMG from Big Daddy Kane's song "Pimpin' Ain't Easy".[1] Ludacris also borrowed three lines of lyrics for his song "Area Codes".

In 2007, AMG began recording an album with DJ Quik under the name "The Fixxers". They released a single through Interscope Records titled "Can U Werk Wit Dat".[2] The album, Midnight Life, was scheduled to be released in mid-to-late 2007 but was shelved due to material being leaked prior to its release.
