featuring Bun B & Snoop Dogg
Despite the obvious odds stacked against him and the obstacles in his path, Houston-born hip-hop heavyweight Mike Jones overcame them all to become one of the most recognizable voices in rap music.
Constantly pumping his music to DJs and strip clubs, Mike Jones caught the eye of the already established Swishahouse label CEO, Michael Watts. A year later, Jones signed a deal with the independent powerhouse. With four independent solo albums and more mixtape verses than could be counted, Mike had an instant following along the South and Mid-West.
While Mike Jones still knows how to serve the street, he does have a more expressive side. "On The American Dream I've got more diverse subject matter; I've grown as a songwriter and I'm giving this CD a whole different look," says Jones. "I came up off my popularity in the strip club so I still have to do songs like 'I Know' that are just right for the ladies that shake it up all night."
Added to the new album, this hometown hero is also preparing the release of a feature film debut of the same name loosely based on his grind and life story. "The movie is about going from zero to hero," he explains. "It shows me working in the Jack in the Box when I just had dreams of being a rap star."
Mr. Jones tells his tale of The American Dream: million dollar bank accounts, calling shots with his own label and flossing chromed-out big bodies. We may soon be calling him Mr. President.
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
