Jones, whose good-natured rap attitude and ability to pick a spectacular
array of beats has allowed him to be one of the few Houston rappers ever
to break nationally.  The album demonstrates why Jones is one of the

Thanks to the success of ... rapper Mike Jones, Houston's idiosyncratic
hip-hop now has a bigger national profile than ever.  'Who Is Mike Jones?'
is a fine introduction.
          Rolling Stone, Nathan Brackett

Jones has helped bring H-towns movement to TV's everywhere.
          XXL, Leah Rose

Mr. Jones has an entertaining, Screw-influenced style, calling out his
lyrics in a boyish voice and often repeating his favorite phrases as if
 controlled by an invisible D.J. He's best at his simplest, as when he
rhymes, "I'm holding wood wheel in the turning lane/My candy paint leaving
stains in the turning lane," transforming a Houston commonplace (those
folks sure make it easy for a driver to turn left) into an
infectious hook.
          New York Times, Kelefa Sanneh

[Jones] spread [his] name further than a lot of...artists in Houston
so far.
          Murder Dog, Matt Sonzala

This is a music infomercial ...wildly, oddly entertaining.
          Boston Globe, Ken Capobianco

[Mike Jones] sticks out among his crunkalicious contemporaries.
          Entertainment Weekly, Raymond Fiore

[Who Is Mike Jones?] features a cluster of street-stomping anthems and
big-pimping cuts.
          Vibe, Joy Sewing

You can't help but root for Mike Jones.  He's a rapper from Houston who
performs under a name so normal, its exotic.  Jones' understated ability
and gritty determination won't leave people wondering who he is for long.
          Hartford Courant, Eric R. Danton

Mike Jones is the sort of individual that relies on Mike Jones' gut
instinct and creates a tremendous demand for Mike Jones' southern slang
music by sheer branding...Mike Jones, forever grinding, is running his
independent game like...the majors.
