Bei Maejor Changes Name to Ali Maejor in Honor of Muhammad Ali

As a solo artist, Bei Maejor's career kicked off in 2011 with single 'Trouble" climbing to the thirty-second position on the U.S. R&B chart. However, his momentum was cut short as he and his record label could not resolve a creative conflict. "I had a lot of ideas about music I wanted to make and things I wanted to do. They [record label] had their own ideas and you know that became a conflict," said Maejor Ali to the Breakfast Club morning sgow.

Since he parted ways with Sony, Maejor has started to reshape his career by first changing his name to Ali Maejor to pay homage to Muhammad Ali. Now fully independent, Maejor Ali tapped popstar Justin Bieber and rapper Juicy J for his newest single entitled "Lolly." Maejor believes the record is the biggest event of the year insisting, "It is culture. It is crossing every boundary in culture, black people, white people, ages."

Ali Maejor has no plans on whether he will remain independent or resign with a major record label. For now, all his energy will be spent releasing his creativity as he sees fit.
