A producer, songwriter, and singer from Southfield, Michigan, Bei Maejor (Brandon Green) broke into the music industry in 2005. That year, while still a student at the University of Michigan, he worked on songs for Trey Songz (â€œUr Behindâ€�) and UGKâ€™s Bun B (â€œHold You Downâ€�). Over the next few years, he continued a close alliance with Trey Songz while producing and writing for the likes of LeToya, Chrisette Michele, Ginuwine, Monica, and Keri Hilson. His biggest successes during this phase of his career involved co-writing credits on Pliesâ€™ â€œShe Got It Made,â€� Soulja Boy's â€œSpeakers Going Hammer,â€� and Lloydâ€™s â€œCupid.â€� His profile increased slowly but surely; he signed to Jive as a solo artist and started issuing mixtapes in 2010. His self-produced, self-written single â€œTrouble,â€� featuring a verse from J. Cole, registered on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart the following August, as his debut album was on the horizon. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
