Career and Life
Melvin Barcliff aka Magoo is an American rapper who is best known as one-half of the pop rap duo Timbaland & Magoo with record producer Tim "Timbaland" Mosley. Like Timbaland, Magoo got his start in the music industry as a member of DeVante Swing's Swing Mob when mutual friend Missy Elliott got DeVante to sign the both of them when he signed Elliott's group Sista.
Timbaland & Magoo left Swing Mob after 1995 and began performing as a duo. Signing with Blackground Records, Timbaland & Magoo released a number of albums which were not as successful as the singles that anchored them.
