In late 1985, with the rise of hip-hop response records all the rage, Azor and the group Salt-n-Pepa (then known as Super Nature) recorded a response to Doug E. Fresh & The Get Fresh Crew's "The Show" called "The Show Stoppa." He also went on to produce Dana Dane, Sweet Tee, Kwamé and others.
Azor wrote and performed in Salt-N-Pepa's music video for "Push It", on keyboards and backup vocals, and also wrote the trio's song "Let's Talk About Sex, among others." In 1995, he co-wrote and produced Snow's single "Anything for You," which became the top-selling single in Jamaica that year.
Azor also dated Salt from 1984 to 1989, during which time he conceived a baby with another woman.
