Junior M.A.F.I.A. was an American hip hop group from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York City, New York. The backronym M.A.F.I.A. stands for Masters At Finding Intelligent Attitudes. They were formed and mentored by New York rapper, The Notorious B.I.G.. In 1995, they released their debut album, Conspiracy. The success of the group's singles, "Player's Anthem" and "Get Money", helped launch the career of Lil' Kim as a solo artist.
The group disbanded shortly after the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., with Lil' Kim and Lil' Cease continuing on with their solo careers. In 2005, three of the members released a second album under the Junior M.A.F.I.A. name.
