Johnny Burns (1979 – 4 July 2000), better known by his stage name Mausberg, was an American burgeoning hip hop artist from Compton, California. He was a protégé of famed West Coast hip hop producer and rapper DJ Quik, whom he met at a local concert in 1997. Mausberg was mugged, shot and killed in his hometown, at the early age of 21.

He began his career in the mid-1990s and partnered with DJ Quik on the single "Down, Down, Down" on the 1998 album Rhythm-al-ism. Mausberg released a compilation album, The Konnectid Project Vol. 1, with Suga Free, which featured numerous fellow West Coast artists. Mausberg made a high-profile feature on No Limit Top Dogg by Snoop Dogg. Mausberg's only solo studio album, Non Fiction, was released posthumously in 2000.
