The Weathermen, is a New York City-based, underground hip-hop supergroup consisting of Aesop Rock, Tame One, Cage, Yak Ballz, El-P, and Breeze Brewin. The group took its name from the revolutionary organization Weatherman, and sometimes refers to itself as the "New Left". Former members include Jakki da Motamouth, Masai Bey, Copywrite (who left due to personal differences with Cage), Vast Aire (He left due to many different reasons), and the late Camu Tao (who died of lung cancer).
The Weathermen released a mixtape in 2003 titled The Conspiracy, on Eastern Conference Records. In the summer of 2010, Cage announced on his Facebook page the beginning of a collaboration between himself and Aesop Rock called "Two of Every Animal", along with the news that there would be no new Weathermen without Camu Tao.
