Mike Jones is one of the most spectacular self-promoters in hip-hop history. In addition to hawking his own records and mixtapes, Jones gave out his home phone number on flyers and in songs (including "Got It Sewed Up," which appears in remix form here), tirelessly answering the flood of calls himself. Jones's indefatigable hustle garnered him a major-label record deal, and his solo debut, WHO IS MIKE JONES?, gives him a chance to back up his boasts.
Jones's brand of hip-hop is rooted in the rap history of his hometown of Houston, Texas, incorporating echoes of the Geto Boys and Screwed Up Click into his forceful approach. However, he's also informed by styles of both coasts, and possesses a certain old-school attitude that finds his bombast equaled by a fun-loving amiability. He's as apt to tear it up with the relentless, unforgettable single "Still Tippin'" as drop a tender ode to a beloved family member on "Grandma." WHO IS MIKE JONES? proves to be only the beginning of an answer to its own question, but it's an always-enjoyable record that holds promise for future revelations.
