Jeff Mao

Jeff ‘Chairman’ Mao pens regular columns for XXL and other reputable publications with the precision and insight of a true veteran. As well as co-authoring two books, he’s also produced the TV series The (White) Rapper Show and Miss Rap Supreme with his creative collective ego trip. Add in his skills as a deep-digging DJ, and Jeff has been at the epicenter of the underground hip hop scene in America since the early '90s.
