The Weathermen was an American hip hop production group, formed in 1998 in Middletown, New York, composed of East Coast rappers and producers Cage Kennylz and Masai Bey, until further expanded into a rap group, and included; Aesop Rock, Tame One, Yak Ballz, El-P, Jakki Tha Motamouth, Camu Tao, Copywrite, Vast Aire and Breeze Brewin.[1][2][3][4] The group took its name from the revolutionary organization Weatherman, and its debut album was to be called "The New Left".


American rapper Cage formed The Weathermen, a hip hop collective alongside Camu Tao, El-P, Copywrite, Yak Ballz, Tame One, Breeze Brewin, Jakki tha Motamouth and Vast Aire. The Weathermen released a mixtape in 2003 titled The Conspiracy, on Eastern Conference Records.[5][6] The Conspiracy was to be the last work Cage would record for Eastern Conference, leaving the label over alleged non-payment. In the summer of 2010, Cage announced on his Facebook page the beginning of a collaboration between himself and Aesop Rock called "Two of Every Animal", along with the news that there would be no new Weathermen without Camu Tao.
