Their music has charted in major markets such as Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Seattle, the United Kingdom, Tokyo, Japan, and Sydney, Australia.
Outstanding accomplishments include a hot remix by Jon Doe on the world famous Beastie Boys Anthology DVD, performances at the legendary Apollo in Harlem, New York, and sharing the stage with the Grammy award winning Hip-Hop band, The Roots, KRS-ONE, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Dead Prez, and MF Doom.
The originality of his music earned him a featured spot in several College Music Journal live showcases including the CMJ Musicfest in New York. His music has been highlighted on television shows and commercials broadcast on BET, MTV, TNT, and Turner South and on various radio shows across the country.
Meeks hit the metro Atlanta area as a college freshmen at Southern Tech in Marietta, GA and has been striving toward the top ever since. He met Jon Doe while he was a college radio DJ at Western Kentucky University. When Jon graduated, he moved to Nashville to rock at Vanderbilt radio for one semester. Then he moved to Atlanta, linked up with the Memphis born emcee, and the rest is history.
In hot pursuit of closing his first label deal, Meeks drove 3,000 miles from Atlanta to Los Angeles to make sure their music was being properly represented at the label. He has been known to use the "Guest List" tactic to get into clubs free to promote their art. Jon Doe came out of no where and added a whole new dimension to their arsenal.
