Born and raised in Brooklyn, Maseo’s interest in music emerged at the young age of six when he began messing around with a family friend’s turntables. Maseo made his first debut as a DJ at the age of twelve, and by the time he reached high school, his DJ skills were finely polished. Maseo has had a handful of aliases in his career including P.A. Pastemaster Mase and Plug Three. As a member of De La Soul one of the most classic hip-hop groups there has ever been, Maseo played the role of rapper, producer, and DJ. He joined forces with Posdnuos and Dave to form De La Soul in the mid 80s. Through his connections, the group met Prince Paul who took the newcomers under his wing and produced their first single “Plug Tunin” and helped create the album 3 Feet High and Rising. De La Soul was an instant success and the album was certified platinum. Since their initial release, De La Soul continued to play a prominent role in the music industry releasing six more albums. During the course of their career, they have received Soul Train, MTV, and Grammy award nominations. This Thursday, he joins Fort Knox 5 for a a little spin time.
