West Coast Crew were a hip-hop\rap group from Los Angeles, California that consisted of Cassonova Malone (born in 1965), D-Rock (born in 1964 from Monroe, Louisiana), J-Bone (born in 1964 in Chicago, Illinois), Lemon Lime (born in 1963) and Mr. J (born in 1964).
The group was founded in 1983. They have performed with artists such as Kopper, Pennye Ford, Naughty Naughty, Roger Clayton & Chrystal.

When he was 6 years old, his mother taught him piano and at the age of 12, Cassonova began exploring different instruments.
