Described by many as ”the Arrogant One”, Mike has listeners wanting to live each day like it’s their last, through his effortless portrayal of living every day to its fullest.

Through Mike’s crafty wordplay, the group was able to give the fans what they needed with local club bangers like “Hater Blockers” and “Peanut Butter”, which made The Dons instant local favorites. That success continued, when the group had opportunities to open for major hip-hop acts such as, Wu-Tang Clan, Yukmouth, Biz Markie and Slick Rick.
Since the group’s dissolution in 2009, Mike Myers has been preparing diligently for the release of his first solo effort entitled “Edukated Money”.

Ronald Jason Jasper better known by his stage name BIG HEAVY A.K.A. DOUGHBOY, (FORMERLY DOUGHBOY), was Born on March 3, 1981 in Brooklyn, New York, and at the age 8 he moved to Stone Mountain, Ga. Big Heavy had become very serious about music after years of being a fan of rappers like Big Daddy Kane, Twista, and Ugk. Then one day it happened, Big Heavy decided that he would start writing raps of his own. At the age of 14 he recorded his first record. “I always knew I could rap, I would be in class even in elementary school trying to come up with lines while the teacher would be teaching. I use to listen to Twista a lot, so when it was time for me to start writing and recording I wrote fast songs.” –BIG HEAVY
Still undecided where he actually wanted to take his career, Big Heavy was introduced to a Producer name Dorian “SOULDOG” Daniels (TONI BRAXTON, ELTON JOHN, T.I.). With SOULDOG being no stranger to making hit records, the two came together to put out his 1ST CD titled “IN DA GAME” in 2003. While still doing business as DOUGHBOY during this point of his career) he was working his lead single off his cd called “From Da ATL Featuring Bone Crusher. It was gaining some momentum in the clubs and on radio throughout the southeast, when he was approached by an independent movie company about them using the rights to his song with Bone Crusher for a movie called “GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION” which starred Actor Morgan Freeman.
While hustling to take care of his son and support his music career, in 2006, he caught a break. He was introduced to Super Producer and Songwriter Bryan-Michael Cox (Usher, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz). Bryan heard a CD of some new music that DOUGHBOY had recorded and immediately became interested in the idea of working with him. At 1st, it didn’t make any sense to BIG HEAVY. He couldn’t understand why a street rapper would be doing business with someone who focuses on r&b. Thinking this would be putting him one step closer to trying to attain a major deal, DOUGH decided to work with him anyway. One thing he learned Immediately from working Bryan was that your career has to have structure and be ran like a business in order for it to become successful, and that its more about your business than your talent when it comes to the music business. They decided to do a joint venture with their labels (Nubreed Entertainment & Blackbaby Inc).
During the Duration of their of agreement, DOUGHBOY released several mixtapes. “DA COOKBOOK” hosted by DJ Khaled, “DA COOKBOOK 2 (The Re-Rock Edition)” Hosted by DJ Drama, & “STREET SERTIFIED” HOSTED BY DJ GREG STREET. With releasing these projects, this helped him gain a core fan base. He also gained radio play with 3 different songs during the duration (Cake up feat J.C, Born Winners, & his most known song to date “BIRDZ FLYIN HIGH”).
Around late 2010, Bryan and now BIG HEAVY decided that it would best if they parted ways when it came to him as an artist. Bryan made it very clear that he wanted to focus on his production and songwriting, but at the same time he would always support, consult and assist Big Heavy in any way possible to help him further his career. By this time, is wasn’t solely about the music, Bryan and BIG HEAVY had become friends.
Feeling like he had to start from scratch, BIG HEAVY decided that it was time to really get on his grind. He started to record a lot of material and felt like it was time to let the world know that he had really worked on perfecting his craft. He hooked back up with Producer SOULDOG, and the tracks that SOULDOG gave him were a perfect fit to the puzzle. BIG HEAVY felt as if he was at the point where he was starting brand new, releasing music under his new alias, so he decided to call his new CD “FROM DA GROUND UP”. The Lead single “GET UP AN GO”, which is produced by SOULDOG, has already gained radio play in over 20 different cities across the Southeast Region, including Atlanta. Not to mention BIG HEAVY’S name is being mentioned in the same sentences as hip hop greats JAY-Z, KANYE WEST, & RICK ROSS on the major rap websites and blogsites throughout the internet.
Due to the fact that BIG HEAVY has a Unique style of music and a work-ethic that is perfect for this business, there is no doubt that he will continue to gain popularity and appeal to a wider range of audiences.
