Maggot (real name Andrew Major) is a British rapper and ex-member of the rap group Goldie Lookin Chain.
Several Goldie Lookin Chain songs have been written about him. These include "The Maggot" (Greatest Hits); based on the tune of "You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two" from the musical Oliver! and "Maneater" by Hall & Oates together with a Steeleye Span hook. "The Maggot" also namechecks Fagin, Dick Turpin, Penelope Keith and Kylie Minogue and features fellow GLC member Mystikal.
Another song, "Maggot at Midnight" (from Safe as Fuck), namechecks (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Nosferatu, The Crystal Maze, Michael Jackson and Jackson's song "Thriller") and features a sample from the television show 'Danger Mouse'. Another short track he features on is called "Maggot's Stand-Up" where Maggot does a short stand-up comic style set; it mostly features scatological references. Maggot also identifies himself as The Hip Hop Vampire, which is one of his aliases.
Maggot, like the other members of the group is a supporter of Liverpool F.C. although he has never seen them play. Maggot has now left Goldie Looking Chain to pursue other interests.
He acquired his nickname after friends decided that a white puffer jacket he wore in the mid 90's made him look like a maggot .
He appeared in the fourth series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2006, finishing third, trailing Michael Barrymore and eventual winner Chantelle Houghton. He was noted by viewers for not taking any particular side in any of the arguments that took place.
