Untitled[edit]

Hi there - so you googled him but did you use your own tool and wiki Bei Maejor? - He shows up at least fifteen times within your own wiki - independently created by others. his song "feel it" with sean kingston and tiesto is number 4 on the charts "black roses" with Trey songs on the album ready was nominated for a grammy "stay or go" by monica is a wiki entry

If you still feel you need to delete the entry go ahead but you'll be adding it down the road when other fans like me start looking for his work... and hopefully they'll get the information right then... Just my 2 cents Hec24000 (talk) 05:36, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi there. :-) You have a good point. There's currently a discussion about this article, so please leave comments at the AfD page if you wish. I'd be happy to be proved wrong about my notability concern. Thanks, and cheers! JamieS93 12:49, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Split discography?[edit]

The discography takes up more than half the article, but the article is a biography and not a discography. I propose summarizing the discography on this page (as the intro/body already does) and splitting the discography to its own page Bei Maejor discography. -- Irn (talk) 15:24, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Disagree with splitting discography - they all belong together - please undo your changes. Hec24000 (talk) 01:16, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Why? Every person/band with a substantial discography/filmography/etc. has a separate page for it. Why should this be different? -- Irn (talk) 22:19, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

I think that the discography should definitely be split off. It is far too long for this article. It's fine putting it in a separate article and focusing this article on info directly about Bei Maejor and not just a list of stuff. SilverserenC 01:56, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Birth name[edit]

Another editor has explained the removal of his birth name on my talk page as follows: "Additionally if he wanted his govt name out there it would be there - hence the removal." The edit summary for the removal explains it as "Prior change removes reason his stage name was chosen which is way more important than his govt. name. Additionally typos were introduced." (I am assuming "govt. name" means birth name, the name he was given at birth.) I have restored the information. It is reliably sourced and a standard part of biographical articles. Thanks. - SummerPhD (talk) 14:23, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Origin of the name "Bei Maejor"[edit]

I am again removing the origin story for the nickname as unsourced. It may or may not be true. Without a reliable source, though, it is not verifiable: "The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth—whether readers can check that material in Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source, not whether editors think it is true." Thanks. - SummerPhD (talk) 14:27, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Most of his materials do say "Bei Maejor". The confusion rose with "Lolly", a 2013 release that credited Maejor|Ali featuring Juicy J and Justin Bieber. But clearly 2011 single "Trouble (Bei Maejor song)" says Bei Maejor on cover. So does 2012 single "Lights Down Low". So there is something to Bei Maejor being his name in most earlier materials. XXL, a relatively reliable hip hop source explains it this way: "Bei Maejor Changes Name to Maejor Ali, Announces New “Lolly” Single - Bei Maejor, who is a producer/songwriter, is announcing a name change. He wants to be now called Maejor Ali. He will also make an appearance on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” to explain the reasoning behind his new alias. In light of his new name, Maejor Ali is releasing a song with Juicy J and Justin Bieber called “Lolly.” With such an unlikely combination, we’re interesting to see how it will turn out." -- [1] werldwayd (talk) 08:42, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Repetitious listings removed from main page[edit]

Maejor Ali's main page is rampant with repetitious information that is already fully relflected in the Maejor Ali (discography) page with more detail. All we need in such cases is a brief listing in main artist's page. I have now deleted all repetitious lists making sure related info is fully reflected in discography page. werldwayd (talk) 11:26, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Maejor[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Maejor's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "iTunes":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 06:15, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
