America's Most Wanted, also known as A.M.W., was an American hip hop group from Oakland, California, made up of Tyrell "The Boss Man" Brewer, Charles "Chucksta" Mack and Chris "Mellow-D" Wilson. They were signed to Triad Records and Shot Records.

They came together in 1990 to release their first album, Criminals, which peaked at number 66 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[1] Five years later, by which time Mellow-D had left the group and been replaced by Lil' Big, the group released its second and final album, The Real Mobb, which failed to chart. In 1996, the group disbanded.
