Biography

The Whooliganz were a 1990s hip hop music group consisting of Scott Caan and Alan Maman (later The Alchemist). The duo went by the names Mad Skillz and Mudfoot, respectively.

Caan and Maman met as teenagers in the wealthy neighborhood of Beverly Hills, California. The duo began performing throughout the Los Angeles area and gained recognition. Maman’s childhood friend, Evidence, introduced the group to Quincy Jones III and they began work on a demo. They eventually caught the attention of B-Real of Cypress Hill. B-Real invited the teens to join the collective Soul Assassins which also consisted of Cypress Hill and House of Pain. The Whooliganz toured the country with the Soul Assassins and their connection helped them land a record deal with Tommy Boy Records.

The Whooliganz recorded their debut album, Make Way for the W. The first single was “Put Your Handz Up”, produced by DJ Lethal and released in 1993. But the single and music video did not receive much airplay. A second single, “Don’t Mean Nothin’” was planned but then Tommy Boy decided to drop the group and not release the album. Another song, “Whooliganz”, was released as a single in 1995 in the UK on Positiva Records but the duo had already gone their separate ways. Caan followed his father, James Caan, into a successful acting career. Maman turned to making beats and became a successful producer named The Alchemist.
