Biography

Michael "Mike" Jones (born January 6, 1981) is an American rapper, actor, and entrepreneur. He initially was affiliated with the record label Swishahouse, then left to found his own label, Ice Age Entertainment. Before he was on Swishahouse he was in a group called Souf Folk, in which he used the alias Sache. He released one album with Souf Folk called Country Thuggin in 2003. He is also known for his catchphrase "MIKE JONES, WHO!, MIKE JONES, WHO..." usually repeated several times and for handing out shirts with his cell phone number printed on the back.

In 2004 after the release of his first breakout single "Still Tippin'," which was receiving lots of radio play, Jones signed a major deal to Jive Records and Warner Bros.. He quickly released his second single, "Back Then," which eventually went Platinum, making it Jones's first Platinum single. On April 19, 2005, Jones released his debut album, Who Is Mike Jones? After two months the album also achieved Platinum status, eventually reaching double Platinum. It is Jones's highest selling album to date.

After leaving Jive Records Jones signed to a distribution deal with Asylum Records for his label Ice Age. In September 2006 Jones released the single entitled "Mr. Jones." It debuted at #92 on the Billboard Charts. The song gained further recognition when fellow rapper Lil Wayne freestyled on his version "Sky Is The Limit" for his "Da Drought 3" mixtape. On January 31, 2007, Jones announced an upcoming EP and a movie, both entitled The American Dream. On April 21, 2007, Jones released the second single from the EP, entitled "My 64," featuring legendary southern rapper Bun B and superstar west coast rapper Snoop Dogg. The single debuted at #1 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. On November 20, 2007, Jones released The American Dream; it debuted on the Billboard charts at #183.

On November 27, 2007, Jones released the debut single "Drop & Gimme 50" for his second solo album, titled Voice. "Drop & Gimme 50" featured Louisiana rapper Hurricane Chris. On May 19, 2008, Jones released the album's second single, called "Cuddy Buddy". The single did well on the Billboard Hot 100, debuting at #78. On December 2, 2009, the third single from the The Voice was released. Entitled "Next To You," it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #63.
