Real Name:
Ali Shaheed Muhammad Jones
Profile:
Ali Shaheed Muhammad was born and raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. At an early age, Ali became fascinated with music. His earliest memory of this fascination was toting around a yellow Mickey Mouse transistor radio he received as a gift. "I brought that with me everywhere; I was comforted by the sounds that came from that little box," he says. Other memories lead to house parties his mother would throw where his Uncle Mike would deejay. It was at one of these parties that the then eight-year-old Ali took control of the mixer and turntables and began his life long musical journey. Ali went from local neighborhood deejay to a world-renowned producer and musician, forming not one but two popular bands.

The first group, A Tribe Called Quest, was where "Mr. Muhammad" partnered up with band mates Q-Tip and Phife. The hip-hop trio recorded six albums, wherein three stand incontestable as hip-hop classics. Their innovation changed the sound of hip-hop and R&B with jazzy, melodic beats. Tribe's influence still lives with artists like D’Angelo, Common, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, The Roots and Musiq.

Ali also co-founded a super trio named "Lucy Pearl" with band members Dawn Robinson and Raphael Saadiq, where he was able to explore more of his music abilities. Lucy Pearl fused funk, rock, R&B and hip-hop bringing a new energy and sound the the scene.

Ali is also a 4-time Grammy nominee -- twice with A Tribe Called Quest, once for works with D’Angelo, and once for Lucy Pearl. With plenty of production credits, no Grammy wins and two defunct groups, what is left for the DJ with plenty more music in his soul?
