DJ Maseo is part of one of the most celebrated hip hop groups of all time: the rapper, producer and DJ is one third of hip hop group De La Soul, who have released platinum selling albums, topped charts and toured the world over the last few decades. Mason is also known as Maseo, P.A. Pasemaster Mase and Plug Three and formed De La Soul in 1987. The trio first rose to prominence when 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. Mason'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, Mason has also featured as a vocalist on songs such as "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" (from De La Soul Is Dead) and with the band when then made a guest appearance with acclaimed hip hoppers the Jungle Brothers on their "Doin' Our Own Dang" track. Mason also laid down the laugh that opens De La Soul's collaboration with Gorillaz, "Feel Good Inc." and is also a member of the Spitkicker collective, a group of artistically-minded people who release work by Spitkicker artists and engage in social, community-based activism. Mason also records as a solo artist, P.A. Pasemaster Mase and remains a key figure on the global hip hop scene.
