    Masai Bey

    Last Definitive Jux release: "Paper Mache" Year released: 2002

    With "Paper Mache," Masai Bey assembled one of Definitive Jux's earliest explosive salvos, a single included on the compilation that signalled the label's peak period, Definitive Jux Presents II. Produced by El-P, "Paper Mache" stomps on the faces of polite emcees and producers; it's the sound Jux was founded on, a peak into an apocalyptic future inspired by old school hip-hop aesthetics and concerns–namely, originality and murdering wack rappers. Bey never released a full length on Definitive Jux, but he continues to release music, though both his Facebook and Bandcamp accounts have remained inactive since 2012.
