“Back then you didn’t want me know I’m hot you all up on me” were the imfamous words of Rapper Mike Jones who was affiliated with the record label Swishahouse, then left to be the owner of his own label Ice Age Entertainment. Before he was on Swishahouse he was in a group called Souf Folk and his alias was “Sache”. He has released one album with Souf Folk called Country Thuggin in 2003. He is also known for his catchphrase “WHO? MIKE JONES” and at his concerts handing out shirts with his cell phone number on the back.
Jones originally wanted to be a National Basketball Association player who rapped on the side. Jones transferred 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. Jones 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 they mainly bought “T-Mobile Sidekicks” and sold them for an inexpensive price.
