“OLD SCHOOL MEETS NEW SCHOOL”
Memphis, TN –Teflon Don believes in Memphis. If you’ve somehow never heard any of the prodigious output from the Memphis born rapper, this will be a show not to miss. Since he made a name for himself with a song used by the Memphis Grizzlies to support the team, Teflon has been singing the praises of birthplace and the multitude of talent that exists in the local rap scene. Now, Don plans to put his money where his mouth has been by headlining a concert at the New Daisy Theater that will bring together some of the Bluff City’s notables and introduce some of its brightest young talents.
The concert, hosted by the New Daisy, is set to take place on Friday, January 20, beginning at 7 pm. Presented in association with Palm Tree Entertainment, S.O.D. Money Gang, Leighala J Management Entertainment and Select-O-Hits, the concert will be an opportunity for Don to unveil his new single “What About Memphis” in a live setting in his hometown.

As a nod to his time spent in the armed forces, Teflon Don has arranged for all military personnel with a valid ID to receive FREE ADMISSION to the concert. “The military made me trustworthy, loyal, helpful, and friendly. I wouldn’t trade those times for the world,” he reflects. “I just want to show love to those who keep sacrificing for all of us; they allow me to chase my dreams.”
Donald Askew Jr. aka Teflon Don grew up in the Breedlove neighborhood of Smoky City, in Memphis, TN. In 1995 he first started freestyling with Trezevant High School classmate Mario Mims aka Yo Gotti (Pologrounds/J Records recording artist). Shortly thereafter, life took a twist for Don on April 29, 2001, the day he accepted a call to join the army. Stationed in Fort Hood, Texas, he received his performance name from continued efforts to record music in Killeen, Texas.
Around this time, he signed with I&I Productions (eventually becoming I&I Records), managed by Renae Noriega. Under her management he expanded his live repertoire, opening up for Magnificent, Slim Thug, and Lil Jon. Despite this change in fortunes, Don was deployed to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. In addition to fulfilling his duties, he continued to perform in showcases held by Dominique Bullock (Jaguarr Productions). In 2005, after signing a management deal with Larry Hudson, Don moved back to Memphis, where he recorded his full debut album, God the Government the Game. Don received a nomination for 2009-2010″Best Indie Rap Album of the Year.” and also created an NBA anthem for the Memphis Grizzlies titled “M.E.M.P.H.I.S. Grizzlies.” Most recently, Teflon Don has collaborated with artists signed under SODMG and performed at Palm Tree Entertainment events, and continues to engage in negotiations with Rock Gamer Studios/MTV Games.
