DJ Maseo is a member of one of the most celebrated hip hop groups of all time 'De La Soul'. The rapper, producer and DJ who has released platinum selling albums, topped charts and toured the world over the last few decades. The trio first rose to fame when they were spotted by Prince Paul with a demo recording of "Plug Tunin". Paul helped the band link up with a label and before long a deal was singed with Tommy Boy for their debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising. Maseo's job within the band is as a DJ, spinning beats and keeping things fresh as he draws inspiration from life experiences and contemporary global events.

As well as this, Maseo has also featured on songs performing vocals like "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" (from De La Soul Is Dead) and with the band when they made a guest appearance with acclaimed hip hoppers the Jungle Brothers on their "Doin' Our Own Dang" track. Maseo also laid down the laugh that opens De La Soul's collaboration with Gorillaz, "Feel Good Inc." Maseo continues to be a key figure on the global hip hop scene.
