Biography

The Mossie was a rap group from Vallejo, California, composed of three members: Kaveo, Mugzi and Tap Dat Ass. They first appeared together on E-40's 1993 EP, The Mail Man. Before dropping their 1997 debut album, Have Heart Have Money, on Sick Wid It and Jive Records, they appeared together on several other Sick Wid It releases, including: The Hogg in Me, The Hemp Museum and Southwest Riders.

The Mossie's debut album, Have Heart Have Money, was released in 1997 on Sick Wid It and Jive Records. It was executive produced by B-Legit and E-40 and features guest performances by Celly Cel, Levitti, 187 Fac, Silk-E, G-Note, B-Legit and E-40. Along with a single, a music video was released to promote the album, "Nobody Can Be You But You", featuring E-40 and cameo appearances by B-Legit, Celly Cel, D-Shot and Suga-T. The group then went on to appear on several Bay Area artists' albums and compilations, together as a group and as solo artists.

In 2001, the group resurfaced with their second studio album, Point Seen, Money Gone. It was produced by Ant Banks, Bosko, Kevin Gardner, Redwine, Sean T and Tone Capone. Three years later Young Mugzi (a.k.a. Mugzilla) dropped a soundtrack on his own label, 30-30 Records titled, Lifestyles Of The Disobayish.
