Biography

In 1999 Masai Bey made his lyrical production and scratching debut simultaneously on a 12inch, alongside Cage and Space titled “Paranoid Android”, released in England on DC Records. This would be the beginning of The Weathermen, which was at the time a production duo consisting of Masai and Cage. This alliance, along with his lyrical presence, resulted in contributing vocals to Cage’s “And So Kiddies…”, co-production on “Mersh” on Bobbito Garcia’s Fondle ‘Em Records and the hook on Smut Peddlers “For The Record” on Rawkus Records.

In 2000, Masai was advised by Cage to give El-P of Company Flow a call about possibly recording some material. After months of contemplating and meditating Masai decided to give El-P a call, which led to
Masai Bey’s contribution to The Weathermen’s, by this time a lyricist collective, debut song “Same As It Never Was” (2001) and his solo debut song “Paper Mache” (2001) on “Definitive Jux presents II”.

In 2002, Definitive Jux rereleased “Paper Mache” as a single with two additional songs titled “Nonstop”, produced by Masai Bey and “The Beginning” produced by El-P featuring BMS and Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox. During this period, Masai spent his days writing, creating music and recording in a studio owned by BMS.

In 2003, Masai spent his days writing, creating music and recording in a studio owned by BMS and by the end of that year Masai Bey and BMS released an “out-of-the-trunk” split 12 inch single “Innersection(BMS)/Rapavenge(Masai Bey)”. By August 2004, Masai had finished his limited “Masai Bey’s Goldmind EP” released independently.
