Michael A. Jones (born November 18, 1981)[2][3] is an American rapper, actor, songwriter, and entrepreneur. Jones reached national fame in 2004-05 on Swishahouse with the release of his breakout singles 'Still Tippin' and 'Back Then', which peaked at #60 and #22 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100, and led to Jones releasing his debut studio album Who Is Mike Jones? on April 19, 2005, which peaked at #3 on the US Billboard 200 and is certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Jones initially became recognized for his catchphrase 'Mike Jones, who?', which he would usually repeat several times on songs. He also became known for handing out shirts with his cell phone number (281-330-8004) printed on the back. The two went on to be trademarks of Jones throughout his music career.

Biography

Early life

Mike Jones originally wanted to be a National Basketball Association player who rapped on the side. He transferred from school to school many times, forcing him to only play in YMCA leagues due to transfer rules after the 9th Grade. Jones dropped out of high school and briefly took jobs at fast food restaurants. He worked at a Compaq plant and sold cell phones from an apartment on Antoine Drive. T. Brown, Jones's partner in several financial ventures, said that he sold some 'dime bags' for six months, but the two mainly bought 'T-MobileSidekicks' and sold them for an inexpensive price.[2]

Jones often visited his grandmother's house in the Studewood area of Houston. He credits her with giving him the ideas to pursue rap, to use his real name, and to write songs for strippers.[2]

Music career

Jones began his musical career in a group called Souf Folk, using the alias Sache. He released one album with Souf Folk called Country Thuggin. In 2001, Jones formed his own independent record label, Ice Age Entertainment, and began solo rapping. He independently promoted and distributed his music on the streets and pressed it on DJs at strip clubs.

Jones

Jones eventually signed to upcoming southern record label Swishahouse after meeting with Swishahouse A&R T. Farris. At that time, Swishahouse was signing fellow upcoming southern rappers Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Chamillionaire. Farris recalled signing Jones, saying, 'I heard him on one of my partner’s mixtapes and I wanted to meet him and try to get him to rap on our mixtapes. We linked up, signed him.'[4] DJ Casual from Meridian, Mississippi was the first person to play Jones on the radio. He loved what Jones was doing and passed it on to several fellow DJs.[4]

2004–07: Who Is Mike Jones? and The American Dream EP

In 2004 after the release of his breakout single 'Still Tippin', which was receiving lots of radio play, Jones signed a major deal to Jive Records and Warner Bros.

2012–present: Hiatus, Where Is Mike Jones?, WHO!Print and mixtapes

During 2010 and 2011, Jones went on a hiatus. On August 20, 2012, he announced his return, explaining the reason for his hiatus was due to financial disputes with his former label, Asylum Records and that money had been taken from him.[6][7] He announced he was finished with his next album, Where Is Mike Jones? and that he was working on its follow-up, titled WHO!Print, with further plans to release a mixtape called Ballin Underground 2.

On October 31, 2013 Jones would release a mixtape titled Back Ballin' Underground.[8][9]

On August 28, 2014 during an interview Jones would talk about his upcoming album Where is Mike Jones?, his upcoming mixtape Money Train and would announce he had signed a new distribution deal with Atlantic Records stating 'It's just a group of people who are all about making money and having money. Once people really understand what the Money Train is, then they'll be onboard with it.'[10] On December 28, 2014 Jones released a new single titled '3 Grams' featuring appearances from Slim Thug and Yung Duece.[11]

On January 1, 2015 Jones released a mixtape titled Money Train.[12][13][14] On February 5, 2015 Jones announced via his Instagram he was working on another mixtape entitled Money Train: Reloaded which will be a sequel to his mixtape Money Train.[15]

Other ventures

Acting career

His first acting role was a minor part in the Fox television series Prison Break as Darius Morgan, C-Note's brother-in-law. In 2007, Jones released his movie The American Dream, in which he starred, with much of the plot based on his life.

House of Dobbe

Jones has his own line of Cognac called 'House of Dobbe'.[citation needed]

Personal life

Philanthropy

Jones has been actively involved in many charity programs, such as his Ice Age for Kids and The American Dream Foundation, through which he hosted community youth events and donated thousands of dollars to help.[citation needed]

Controversy

Mike

Chamillionaire

In 2004, Chamillionaire called out the rest of the Houston hip hop scene because he felt like they weren't representing the best of what Houston had to offer, lyrically, and urged them to improve in order to gain the recognition he believes Houston deserves.[citation needed] In response, Swishahouse took offense and replied by criticizing Chamillionaire. Chamillionaire then accused Jones, a past member of Swishahouse, of slander. As a result, the first CD of The Mixtape Messiah included insults directed at Jones, including the tracks 'You Got Wrecked', 'Who They Want', and 'Game Over'.

On February 10, 2007, YouTube user FDTV Video Podcast uploaded a parody video of Chamillionaire shooting Jones. It ridiculed Jones and was the subject of some small further controversy.[16] However, in late 2008, the beef between the pair had died down. Chamillionaire apologized to Jones in 2010, marking an official end to their dispute. He said, live on stage, 'From the bottom of my heart, I apologize to Mike Jones for the triple disc Mixtape Messiah 1 diss tracks. I mean no disrespect.'[17]

Trae Tha Truth

On August 12, 2008, at the Ozone Awards, Jones got into a physical altercation with fellow Houston rapper Frazier 'Trae The Truth' Thompson. Trae Tha Truth punched Jones three times—once in the back, once in the face, and once on the nose. The last punch broke Jones's nose. They have since resolved their issues and are now reconciled.[18]

If The Source handed out an award for Most Accessible MC, Swishahouse's self-made Mike Jones would be an easy bet. His greatest asset is self-promotion, which would still be the case if he were an above-average rapper. Jones promotes himself so audaciously that he might as well provide a key to his house with each mixtape he sells. He claims to field so many calls from his hotline -- a hotline he allegedly answers when he's not busy pronouncing, 'Mike Jones! Hit me up at 281-330-8004!,' to any life form within earshot -- that you must wonder if he's able to spend any time improving his mic skills. His first album with major label distribution (after a series of independent releases and mixtapes), naturally titled Who Is Mike Jones?, doesn't really answer any questions, though it does tell you that he can look real good when surrounded with the right people. He hits paydirt with 'Still Tippin',' a magnificent thing so woozy in effect that you could be racing a sports car down a freeway and still feel like you're navigating a Hummer through a lake of curdled cough syrup. Here, producer Salih Williams and featured MCs Slim Thug and Paul Wall outshine Jones to such an extent that, after hearing it, you might be prompted to ask, 'Where was Mike Jones?' Still, Jones is ultimately very likable, shown best in the closing track, a sweet tribute to his supportive late grandmother.
