Born in Columbus, Georgia, where he started playing guitar and drums at the age of 12, Walter “Mucho” Scott’s big break came in 1988 when opening up for Guy in Columbus Georgia. As a member of The Basic Black Band, Mucho and his fellow band members were asked by Gene Griffin to travel to New York to play behind the R&B group, Today, who was on tour with Teddy Riley and Guy. Basic Black, an integral part of the New Jack Swing era, soon after recorded a single on the Sounds of New York label, and was later picked up by Motown Records, where Mucho served as a songwriter and producer, in addition to being a vocalist and musician in the band. Basic Black had hits such as “Special Kind of Fool” and “She’s Mine” which garnered huge airplay in the early 1990s.

Basic Black was later dismantled, with its members pursuing various musical projects, and Mucho moved to Virginia Beach to join forces with Teddy Riley, where he produced hits for MC Lyte, Blackstreet, Guy, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, LL Cool J, SWV, Big Bub, Gerald Levert, Amerie, and the incomparable Michael Jackson. Mucho has been called the “King of Remixes,” with remixes for Patti LaBelle and Keith Sweat, in addition to the artists above. While in Virginia, Mucho also wrote and produced songs for his new group, 911, where he served as one of the groups vocalists.

Over the years, Mucho has continued to write and produce hit music in Atlanta, and has released his electrifying single, “Mary” which has garnered musical acclaim in the Pop genre.
