Las Vegas rapper, D Jon, truly possesses the best of both worlds: the flash, fun and hype of Sin City and the warmth and honesty of the South. D Jon began his hip-hop adventure at the early age of eight years old, when he wrote his first R&B tune for family and friends in Tyler, TX. Born Donald Johnson Jr., he grew up with the hopes of becoming a professional basketball player, but understood even then that his true passion was music.
Several years later, at the age of 13, D Jon recorded his first homemade "album" using two radios, a cheap microphone and instrumentals from other industry artists. That same year he began to compete in free styling battles in Tyler, gaining respect from the older street rappers for his ability to flow.
Throughout high school, D Jon gained attention not only through basketball, but also through his artistic ability in creating music, as he increased his musical knowledge by playing in the school band. Between being the school''s basketball star and making music, D Jon stayed distracted from the tough streets that surrounded him.
College brought him a basketball scholarship and a larger scene to conquer. Studying business management prepped D Jon to create his own record label upon moving to Las Vegas, called Duce Family Records, which features local independent artists.
His style is playful and lively, perfect for the clubs (think Nelly) while also a double threat with a smooth flow tailor made for the crossover urban R&B market (a la Usher).
This life long passion and connection to music has led him to the production dials as well, a skill he has picked up and now uses on a majority of his tracks. His early work won Las Vegas'' KLUC 98.5''s Local Battle Zone contest for five consecutive weeks with single, "Clap Wit'' Me". This local airplay gained him the attention of Grammy Winning Producer, Tommy Morolda (Richie Sambora, Days Of Thunder Sndtrk), who has worked on a number of tracks that will be appearing in upcoming movie soundtracks.
