Duane Lee, better known by his stage name Snupe, is an American rapper and record producer from Houston, Texas. He emerged in the early 1990s as a member of the Oakland-based Hieroglyphics collective. In 1994, he released the album Like It Should Be as a member of the duo Extra Prolific alongside DJ Mike G. The album was performed and predominantly produced by Lee, with guest appearances performed by members of Hieroglyphics. Lee began using Extra Prolific or its shortened form Extra Pro as a stage name, and released the cassette-only 2 for 15 in 1996. That same year, Lee was dismissed from Hieroglyphics by the other members of the group due to "musical differences". Hieroglyphics frontman Del the Funky Homosapien later claimed Lee was kicked from the group due to an issue he had with Casual, while Lee himself has stated that it stemmed from his actions.
In 1998, Lee released the album Master Piece under the name Extra Pro, and the EP From Block to Block with former partner Mike G. Lee then changed his stage name to Lee Majors and released two albums with rapper J-White: Iron Sharpens Iron (2005) and The Good Life (2009).
Lee returned in 2013 with the release of the religiously-themed Royalty, released exclusively via iTunes under the Extra Prolific name. In 2017, under the stage name Lee Majors, he released the album Beautiful Life, a collaborative effort with his wife Regina Chavon.
