Reared on the east side of Atlanta in the rugged area known as Zone 6, rapper Maceo (born Maceo Barnes) burst onto the scene in the summer of 2005 with the hot crunk singles "Go Sit Down" and "Nextel Chirp." The tracks were Atlanta favorites at first, but then branched into neighboring states before becoming Southern mixtape staples. Maceo made his own mixtape splash with an appearance on volume three of DJ Mars and DJ Bobby Black's Street Certified series. Maceo made his nationwide debut at the end of summer with his debut on the Big Cat label, Straight out da Pot. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
