"dollah jones - chasing the dream"

Hip-hop is overrun with cookie-cutter artists who lack originality. But Detroit native, Derrick “Dollah” Jones, who has talked the talk and walked the walk since the age of 14, displays all the makings of a true hip-hop star. With his funky off-the-cuff wordplay, confident swagger, and energetic stage show, it is only a matter of time before his proverbial starship arrives to catapult his career into superstar status.

“I create new stuff [and] I try to be different,” Jones explains. “If everybody’s going right, [then] I’m the one that tries to go left.”

Jones began his career as a gospel rapper, so he faced some resistance when he decided to go the secular route. “At first the people at my church, [and] my mom, [were] on my head about it,” he recalls. “But once they started hearing my music and realizing it wasn’t all crazy, and hard-core, and thuggish, they accepted it more.”

The switch has proven to be a major catalyst for his rapidly advancing career. Jones is looking forward to the release of his debut album, A Dollah and a Dream, in the first quarter of 2008. –janaya black

1.) Wouldn't Change A Thing
The Performance is excellent. Rhythm, flow, and playing off each other. Male and female flow well.
The Melody is something that could keep a crowd bouncin all night. Tight.
The Production is simple and complex. Yes, I meant that. Easy to follow but with something extra. Nice work.

3.) Review
I like the feel of the openning of the song. It makes you just feel like you are going to be listening to something interesting and new.

The first verse was really good. It had a strong flow and I thought word play was on point but because it was so good, it made the second verse seem weak so i would look at lyrically taking the second verse to the next level. Also, the third verse wasn't as lyrically fulfilling but the way it was performed made it hot. It had a great feel to it which brought the song back to being a hot ass track.

The chorus fit the song very well and I liked both male and female voices on it.

Overall, I was feelin the track, it was a B+ from a production standpoint, an A with performance, and most definitely an A with melody. I would just look at doing something to make the second verse better.

4.) This song is fire

5.) Too Ill
Ill vocals goddamn! This track is so hot! Goddamn nice production and vocals. Beat is way funny but way danceable. Love the hook.
- IIKanji from Boulder, Colorado on 25Aug2007

6.) yeah
the hook off the top is a good choice cuz it pulls you into the song right away. typical club track but it's on par with avg club track you hear in the club so it does it's job. I like the mc's voice. kinda raspy. the beat is great for the track and opens nicely for the mc's verses.
- sketchbros from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on 22Aug2007

7.) Sweet Hook
Vocals are sick. Female vox are sexy and smooth with great tone. The male vox are unique which definitely helps create separation between you and your peers. Mix feels light but it's very clear and keeps ya head bobbin'. Nice groove.

1.) Tight Track
This may very well be the dopest track I've heard on garageband. I would definately do a track with this cat. Hook,production, flow, everything was well put together. Trump Talk.

5.) Nextel Song
Sprint should be paying royalties to this company. The sound is needing a bit the production is banging. Nice work.

This one is all about business. This guy knows this is a HIT this one is original as all you know what. The performance is top notch. The production is hot and the sound is cool and the hook is funny.

7.) playa playa
i know about that, brah. This is a banga and my new official anthem. for all tha playaz pimpin around the world, i want to thank you. This song is what it is.
- BARSmuzik from Fairfield, California on 25Aug2007

8.) Creative Track
Performance was excellent! The hook caught me the most, creative. This is a high percentage start up track, meaning you can take this to a club, open up for someone at a concert, and maybe a hit single. Production was done to perfection, nothing bad at all. Sound was great too with a dirty south feel with the screwed sample for the hook. I can see many peeps bumpin this to da fullest yo.
- bmwy2k3 from Casselberry, Florida on 7Sep2007

9.) phone on my hip hook that won't slip
this is a nice example of someone doing something original....Its got a dark overtone, with a slow, well articulated flow that changes up with a nice quick witted silver tongued spit...this is something i'd listen to drinking a beer and just chillin...real nice

The Dollah Jones Ep
- Get Down- Playing in Major Radio Markets
and various Internet Radio Stations



The future of the hip hop that we've come to know is here. World, this is Dollah Jones. Derrick Dollah Jones is a Detroit native, who has been in the entertainment industry writing, performing and recording since 1998. As an artist he's always been noted as being highly original. With the combination of over 600 live performances, 160 songs written (almost half of which have been recorded) and collaborations with artists such as: Kiearra KiKi Sheard (EMI Gospel), J. Moss (Pajam), Denaun "Kon Artis" Porter (Shady Records), T Baby (Runyon Ave) makes him a connoisseur in the entertainment industry.

This was Dollah's fourth year traveling throughout Metro Detroit Public Schools and Schools across the country to cities like Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, and Indiana, just to name a few in the "EOCSOC" (Embracing Our Community & Saving Our Children) Tour. The School Tour has raised over 70,000 pounds of can-goods for the homeless. Featured on the tour with Dollah are "Kelz" (NO-TYZE Ent.), "RAZ-B" (from B2K), and "Katrina Carson" (Hip Hopera Ent.). Dollah is also currently in the process of creating his own studio production headquarters. There’s no harder working artist in Detroit than Dollah Jones!

The Michigan Chronicle displays him as a "Positive... role model in his modern day community". Right now Dollah has finished up his EP entitled "THE DOLLAH JONES EP" and is set to be released Sept. 4, 2007. He has just dropped his debut single off the EP entitled "GET DOWN". "GET DOWN" is currently playing on a few radio and internet stations. Production work on the EP includes "Lyric" producer/songwriter from Species Entertainment who wrote track #7 on Ray J's album "Raydiation", E-Dot, and J. Drew Sheard from JDS Productions who has produced music for Gospel Sensation KiKi Sheard whose album is currently GOLD, and Doug "Rockboy" Mersier (Rockboy Creations). Dollah's entire album will be released early 2008 entitled "A DOLLAH AND A DREAM". The entire "Dollah" concept was originated in a dream. Later in time, his last name "Jones" was added to give exclusivity.

Dollah Jones is an unsigned artist. He has pre-established goals along with the talent, the image, the hunger, and the drive to compete in today’s market. If originality is the key, then the future of the hip hop that we've come to know is here. World, "THIS IS DOLLAH JONES"..........
