Timbaland & Magoo were a rap duo consisting of producer/rapper Timothy "Timbaland" Mosley and rapper Melvin "Magoo" Barcliff, formed in 1989.[1] Hailing from Norfolk, Virginia, the duo first met when they were teenagers. They later paired up as a duo and released their debut album Welcome to Our World, spawning their highest-charting single "Up Jumps da Boogie". They released two more studio albums as a group, Indecent Proposal in 2001 and Under Construction, Part II in 2003. The latter was meant as a sequel to Missy Elliott's fourth album Under Construction.

In August 2021, Blackground Records, the label who launched R&B/Pop singer Aaliyah, signed a distribution deal with Empire Distribution to re-release Timbaland & Magoo's catalogue on CD, cassette and vinyl, onto digital download sites and, for the first time ever, streaming services. As a result, Timbaland's 1998 LP Tim's Bio: Life from da Bassment and Timbaland & Magoo albums Welcome to Our World, Indecent Proposal and Under Construction, Part II were re-released August 27, 2021. 

Timbaland’s rap partner Magoo has passed away at the age of 50. Rapper Magoo whose real name is Melvin Barcliff, an indie rock band from Norfolk, England was announced dead today, Sunday, the 13th of August 22023. Known for his unforgettable collaborations with the likes of Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and the late Aaliyah, Magoo’s influence on the genre is immeasurable.

The confirmation of his passing came through an emotional Instagram post shared by Digital Black from the group Playa.

Michael: Rest in Peace Magoo 😞🙏🏽 I’m not one to share screenshots so I’ll just say how I was having a real hard time during my pregnancy going through depression and Magoo reached out uplifting and encouraging 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Peter: Black & Smoke — former Playa members & current Dru Hill members — acknowledged his passing. Playa, Magoo, Timbaland, Missy, Aaliyah, etc. were all members of the #Supafriends . May he rest in peace 😔 we’re losing so much of your culture.

Chest: Rest In Peace to VA Hip-Hop Legend Magoo. I'm Devastated. I was just mentioning Him in an Interview. I'm in Shock, Bro. A Supafriends Crew Member. With Static and Aaliyah. I memorized damn near The whole "Welcome To Our World" album with his verses. Can't believe this. 😔🕊🙏🏽
