About the Author:

When you're young you very often don t know which way you ll be led in life. I fell in love and my loyalty to my husband and my faith in GOD led me to where I am today. - Lydia Harris a veteran player in the music industry for Lydia Evette Harris is known not only as a seasoned businesswoman but more notably the Lady Boss of the hip hop industry. In establishing her poignant career as a record label CEO several years ago, the Houston Texas native went on to achieve notable success as the co-owner of Death Row Records, in addition to her current production companies Keeping the Dream Alive Productions (K.D.A.) and Dream On Productions (D.O.P.). The latter two companies are responsible for the release of the 2002 docudrama Welcome To Death Row, and for the forthcoming biography entitled Married To The Game.

Her journey began in 1985 when the then starry-eyed Harris was in pursuit of a career as a singer. A chance meeting in a Houston Texas nightclub was the quantum leap that inevitably changed her life forever. It was here that she met her husband, the notorious Michael "Harry-O" Harris a drug dealer turned entrepreneur whose story reined through the streets of Los Angeles like an urban legend. Their meeting led to their marriage and her subsequent involvement in the music industry. After his incarceration, Harris boldly stepped into her husband s shoes as the co-founder of Death Row Records, where she became responsible for nurturing the careers of artists such as Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Battlecat, Dana Dane and a host of others.

While under the tutelage of her imprisoned husband, Harris s life soon became one infused with legal battles, business dealings in the music industry, crime, and deceit, all while she struggled to maintain dignity, loyalty and integrity in a business where such commodities seldom exist. Never once realizing that she d be faced with streetwise, hardcore gangsters, Harris s life was soon caught up in a melange of circumstances spawned by her marriage. Having always walked in silence while maintaining a stronghold to her work in the male dominated music industry of corporate relations in music, was the motivation that inspired Harris to write her forthcoming autobiography book entitled Married To The Game. Based entirely on her life in the record industry and marriage, Harris s story is one of inspiration, courage and ambition and while it reads like a page out of a Mario Puzo novel. It is a true to life indication of the strength of a woman. "My book is a testimony to believing in God and giving Him the glory...I hope my story will help other sisters know what I went through...I never want another woman to go through what I've been through.

Review:

"Lydia Harris is Winnie Mandela to me because she stayed down, and not too many women have the self-discipline to stay down with a brother who is incarcerated."-Former LA gang member 

"With the new company taking shape, Suge was happy to rid some prior obligations, particularly Eric 'Easy-E'" -Wright and Ruthless Records...
