The hip hop group from Brooklyn were formed back in 1994 by Biggie himself and were mentored by him.

The crew, whose acronym stands for Masters At Finding Intelligent Attitudes, released their debut album, Conspiracy, the following year, which featured huge hits from the group such as ‘Player’s Anthem’ and ‘Get Money’.

The group was made up of 10 artists altogether including the ‘Juicy’ star - Biggie, Lil Kim, Lil Cease, Trife, Larceny, Nino Brown, Chico Del Vec, MC Klepto, Capone and Busgy.

However, the members of the crew ended up going their separate ways shortly after the passing of Biggie.
