Lil Jon

For the last decade plus, the words “Yeah,” “Ok,” and “What” have been synonymous with

mulB-plaBnum, Grammy award winning arBst Lil Jon. He has been one of the most prominent

figures in music and pop culture alike, performing for hundreds of thousands of fans with Usher

& Ludacris, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Pitbull, TLC (on FOX’s American Idol), Yandel, LMFAO and

Sydney Samson just to name a few. In 2014, Lil Jon proved once again he’s a powerhouse arBst

teaming up with DJ Snake for their smash hit “Turn Down for What,” which created a massive

worldwide craze. The string of hit songs haven’t stop a]er that including “Bend Ova” feat. Tyga,

“Prison Riot” with Flosstradamus, “Get Loose,” (out on DIM MAK) and recent singles “Live the

Night,” with Hardwell “Savage,” with Borgeous and Riggi & Piros and “Take It Off” featuring

Yandel and Becky G.

His success as a mainstay in the DJ-world is evident with a current residency at Hakkasan

Nightclub (MGM Grand) along with Jewel Nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino. Previously, Lil Jon

had a DJ residency for over five years at the Wynn/Encore (Surrender, Tryst, XS); even being

named the Las Vegas Resident DJ of The Year. He has traveled the globe DJing worldwide in

places such as, but not limited to France, Germany, South Korea, China, India, Dubai, London,

Mexico, and Australia.

Lil Jon conBnues to be a master at markeBng and business as evident by being tapped by Bud

Light [Fall 2015] to star in their #UpForWhatever commercial and campaign. He’s had an Oakley

endorsement deal since 2005, became a Don Julio tequila brand ambassador, partnered with

SOL headphones - which helped to launch SOL Deck by starring in the Radio Shack commercial

in Fall 2013 – and has launched his own clothing line 2Vicious. His markeBng chops came in

helpful when casted on NBC’s primeBme show Celebrity Appren3ce (Spring 2011) quickly

becoming a fan-favorite naBonwide. Lil Jon was back on primeBme television in the Spring of

2013 on the cast of Celebrity Appren3ce All-Stars, where he came in 3rd and raised almost

$200,000 for the American Diabetes AssociaBon.

Known best for his role in creaBng and popularizing the southern movement and lifestyle

known as Crunk, Lil Jon delivered a string of regional hits (in the 90’s) with the East Side Boyz

eventually becoming a naBonal force in 2001 thanks to the tracks “Bia Bia” and “Put Yo Hood

Up.” Crunk became so popular that Jon became a fixture on Chappelle’s Show and arBsts not

directly connected to him (such as Mary J. Blige) began using the word Crunk in their own

music. Jon helped usher the word ‘Crunk’ not only a naBonal scale, but worldwide. The

Merriam-Webster DicBonary added the word into their book in 2007.

Lil Jon has a long list of plaBnum-selling producBons, cra]ing groundbreaking hits for a diverse

array of arBsts such as E-40, Usher, Ciara, The Ying Yang Twins, Ice Cube and more. He’s also

worked with will.i.am, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Bret Michaels, Travis Barker, Jennifer Lopez,

Machine Gun Kelly, DJ Snake and many more. As an arBst, he has sold millions of records as the

frontman of Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz, whose smash hits “Get Low” and “What U Gon’ Do”

have been among some of the biggest crossover hip-hop records. His songs have been featured

in huge blockbuster movies and television shows including The Hangover, Neighbors 1 & 2, The

Proposal, the Step Up franchise, FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, Black-Ish, HBO’s Ballers,

Horrible Bosses, NBC’s Parks & Recrea3on, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Tonight Show with

Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and many more.

His consistent hitmaking has earned him legions of fans from Los Angeles to New York to the

Midwest and of course his naBve region, the South. This is no more evident as Lil Jon won BMI’s

Songwriter of the Year award as well as scored eight Billboard Awards (for the two hit Usher

tracks “Yeah!” and “Lovers and Friends”), a Grammy, a Radio Music Award, a BET award, two

MTV Video Music Awards, and an American Music Award.

Also Featuring

Mike Jones

Michael Jones, or simply known as Mike Jones, is an American rapper, born in January 6, 1981, in Houston, Texas. He also pursues an acting career on an occasional basis. Jones initially wanted to pursue a different career than that in music, given his extraordinary craze for basketball. He transferred for school to school in order to look for basketball opportunities, but eventually dropped out by 9th grade. He worked in some fast food restaurants afterwards, and by 2001, was ready to take up a career as a rapper. His interest may have stemmed from an earlier age, but he cites his grandmother as a major motivation for his decision to enter the music industry.

Jones was initially affiliated with the record label Swishahouse, but left them in 2001 to find his own record producing company called Ice Age Entertainment. In recent times, the two companies have come to a mutual understanding, where Swishahouse will promote Jones’ music under his own record label. Before becoming a prominent Hip Hop artist, he was in a band called Souf Folk, and sang under the pseudonym Sache. During his time with the group, he released an album called Country Thuggin. It was only until 2004 when Jones broke out in to the major Hip Hop scene. His first ever single, “Still Tippin’“, received a lot of radio coverage, helping popularize Jones’ music in the initial stages. After the success of his first single, Jones decided to make another track, naming it “Back Then“. This instantly went viral, and was Jones’ first track to reach platinum status. The recognition that ensued encouraged the star to go for an all-out album, and in April 2005, he released his debut album called Who Is Mike Jones. Within a period of two short months, the album reached double platinum status, and is now Jones’ highest selling album.

Jones’, however, was nowhere close to being satisfied with temporary fame. In September 2006, he released another impressive single called “Mr. Jones”, including some freestyling elements in to the track. With this success, Jones instantly considered making an EP. He subsequently released another single “My 64” with rappers Bun B and Snoop Dogg. The track became such an outstanding hit, that it premiered at #1 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. A year later, he released these two singles in a 6–track album called The American Dream. This album also featured an earlier rendition of “Still Trippin” featuring Slim Thug and Paul Wall. In 2007, Jones began work on his second album, and in the coming few months, released three singles that all successfully charted in the #100 billboard. These singles included “Drop & Gimme 50“, “Cuddy Buddy” and “Next To You“, the first of which featured Hurricane Chris. Two years down the line, Jones released his second album called The Voice, which charted at #12 in the Billboard 200 list, and sold close to 25,000 copies in the first seven days.

Jones has also pursued a partial acting career, casting as Darius Morgan in the hit TV series Prison Break (2005-2009). Jones also released a film-documentary with the same name as his first EP (The American Dream), with the film featuring the story of his life. After a temporary hiatus during 2010 and 2011, Mike Jones has now returned and is working on his third album.
