Masspike Miles had girls screaming way before he got his first tattoo or signed with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. The Roxbury, Massachusetts native used to get attention as a chubby kid during his stint in a short-lived R&B group in the early ’90s.
“The whole thing is, I was also in a group called Perfect Gentlemen under Maurice Starr, who started New Edition and New Kids on the Block,” Miles revealed. “So I was developed under Maurice Starr at a young age as well. I was on Warner Brothers at 11, 12 years old. I already had a taste of what was to come and what I had to deal with.”
Masspike (born Miles Wheeler) was the youngest member of the group and sang lead on their self-titled LP. Unfortunately, Perfect Gentlemen didn’t enjoy the longevity that New Edition and the New Kids did, and Miles soon found himself out of the game. He doesn’t blame Starr, however, whom New Edition accused of stealing money.
“A lot of people get into the game and they have this misconception of ‘I’m gonna be rich,’ ” Mass said of New Edition’s financial woes. “The game was totally different in the ’80s. Your percentage and your royalties are gonna be different. If you got five people in a group, you’re splitting $20,000 from a show — do the math. Twenty percent to the manager as well. At the end of the day, if you don’t save your money right, and you ain’t a proper hustler, then yeah, you’re gonna get a VCR at the end of the day. I don’t got nothing bad to say about Maurice Starr, ’cause he taught me a lot. And he taught them a lot. They wouldn’t be who they are if it wasn’t for him.”
Miles went from the stage to the street when his entertainment funds started to dry up.
“I was on the block, getting in trouble, getting locked up,” he said. “Holland Street in Roxbury. I was doing the things people do when they on the block. That’s why I speak that real language on them records. That’s my life. That’s what I lived. If I ain’t lived it, I’m speaking on something that my man lived and might have been a great concept to come up with. I was in the streets, then I took a step … Benzino and Dave Mays from The Source magazine saw me in the grind and took me and put under The Source magazine. So I was doing a lot of modeling and all of that. But I was mostly in the streets.”
While on his hustle, Masspike — named after the Massachusetts Turnpike that stretches from Springfield to Boston — kept producing records for himself and his business partner and fellow artist Smoke Bulga. Miles lucked out when he crossed paths with Rick Ross when the Bawse was on a promo run in Boston for Trilla.
