Mike Gambo is a writer, Hip-Hop artist and also co-owner of Hood Hippie Entertainment. He also works for Transformations Treatment Center and helps operate their music recovery program Soundpath Recovery. After dropping out of high school to sell drugs, Mike soon found himself struggling with his own addiction to opiates. After a 6 year battle in and out of detox and methadone clinics, Mike eventually found himself homeless and hopeless. It was there he decided he would need to get clean, or die.
Today, Mike has been clean and sober since 2012. Mike uses his past experiences and talents through music as a way to help and encourage others looking for a better life free from addiction. Mike is also an outspoken voice on other topics including political policies, media, and helping to bring awareness and resources to others who are stuck in the game and hopeless cycle of drug dealing and gangs.
