As the Motocross industry grew in success, so did young Brandon Mays. At the age of ten Brandon won a popular motocross race called the Winter Olympics while riding a 65cc dirt bike, earning his first Amateur Pro sponsorship from the company SPY OPTICS. From that point the young rider and his reputation grew rapidly as more sponsors began to recognize his speed on a dirt bike and control on the track. He also earned the attention of the leading motocross publications such as Motoplayground, Racer X, The Pickle, Dirt Rider Magazine, Hole Shot Magazine, and Vurbmoto.com, where he is still a regularly featured rider.

At the height of Brandon’s amateur career he was involved in a life threatening accident while training. He was taken to the hospital with a broken neck, back and a punctured heart. In the emergency room, while doctors were fighting to save Brandon’s life, his heart stopped and “flat-lined” twice. The first time his heart “flat-lined” for a total of three minutes, and then again for another five minutes; Brandon was successfully resuscitated.
During his recovery period Brandon attended physical therapy, teaching him to relearn how to walk and speak again. Once he regained the ability to walk and speak successfully, he began to focus his energy on making music; his only other passion outside of motocross. Brandon viewed his near-death experience as a much needed break which became a driving inspiration for his music. Today, his music often reflects his passion for chasing dreams, and making the impossible seem ordinary.
Once Brandon made a full recovery, he attempted to come back to the motocross world for his rookie season and make his pro debut in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series. Going into his Supercross pro debut suffering from a un-casted broken hand, Brandon qualified for the night show riding the #527 Honda CRF250R. During the event he suffered yet again from another crash. Mays acquired an injury that put him in danger of being paralyzed from the neck down. With this new injury, he was forced into a form of musical rehabilitation; he began recording his first professional hip-hop/pop music compilation which was to be released during his rookie season in the Supercross series as the soundtrack to Motocross. Musically, Brandon was under the guidance of music mogul Melvin Brown (CEO of Konvict Muzik), who was Mays’ manager and entertainment agent. He was also under the influence and guidance of world renowned music stars such as Akon, T-Pain and Lady Gaga.
Mays, now known as B Mayzee, appreciated the learning experience he gained from the company of Melvin Brown, Akon and Konvict Muzik label. B Mayzee felt that there wasn’t a record company whom understood his vision and plans for Motolife as a musical brand and culture. Later in the year of 2011, B Mayzee decided that it was best to ask Melvin Brown and Konvict Muzik for a mutual release from their contract. After the split B Mayzee went on to record and release his first three singles from his album titled, The Throttles Still Twisted.
His album The Throttles Still Twisted along with music videos such as Born 2 Win, Sweet Hangover, and Motoking quickly became some of B Mayzee’s most notable and respected music productions. One of B Mayzee’s biggest records Heavens Calling 811, a heartfelt song regarding one of his best friends/brother, fallen rider Josh Lichtle. It became a song that nearly every Motocross lover in the universe can relate to.
B Mayzee is also a part of the popular internet series BIKELIFE, featuring talented freestyle rappers and dirt bike riders such as Meek Mill, Tustroke Prince, Dirtbike Rell, Chino and more. Along with B Mayzee, Meek Mill is a fellow advocate and major roll player in cross-marketing the hip hop industry with dirt bikes and the “motolife.”
- In 2010 B Mayzee landed a management and recording deal with Melvin Brown, CEO of Konvict Muzik and partner with pop superstar Akon. He was signed and worked with international stars T-Pain, Lady Gaga.
- Brandon has also worked with Grammy nominated producer Battle Roy. Battle Roy has produced several records for superstars such as Chris Brown, Omarion, and Slash from the band Guns & Roses.
B Mayzee is the voice of “Motolife” music, which today has become the soundtrack to dirt bike/motor sports/extreme Sport lifestyles. Today, B Mayzee creates music that resonates with high energy which is able to add motivation for any occasion.
