Minnesota Fats - Biography
Jason Brown, AKA Minnesota Fats was born
and raised on the west side of Chicago.
Chicago is well known for being a hotbed of
developing talent and famous for its nightlife.
Having this surrounding you can be a big
influence on the path you take in life. And so
it was with Jason as he started making music
at the age of eight. As the years passed and
Brown learned his craft he became a teenager, and at the age of 15 moved to Minnesota,
where he presently resides. As Fats continued to create his own music, by the age of 21
he decided to start the Minnesota based independent label We On Records. This would
spur on Minnesota Fats to record a string of
successful releases.
We On Records first release was in 2002, titled Nation Business, it was Minnesota Fats and
Famis the High Life Man’s first duo venture, and it was well received. Album’s to follow were We
On Mix-tape Vol. 1 (2004), Natra’s Citiology (2005), Desi’s Baler Street Journal (2005), and the
newest solo venture and We On’s latest release, State Rehab (2006).
We On Records has sold over 20,000 albums to date. A good start for indie label indeed. The
importance of education and understanding his business became a priority and Jason Brown
recently graduated with an Associates Degree in Music Business from Minnesota School of
Business in 2006, and he has hopes to go national in the first quarter of 2007.
The We On label is currently doing shows every month around the twin cities in support of their
artists. They have done shows in many other states as well including, Chicago, Illinois, New
York, and Michigan. Minnesota is the home of the label but they understand that you need to
spread your wings and reach out on more national level if getting the music the exposure it deserves and selling your catalog is a priority.
The different venues the label has included as homes for their artists are First Avenue, The
Quest, Club Myth, and Escape Ultra Lounge. In 2004, We On Records landed a first place position at the American Music Search (AMS) conference in Chicago. Since then they have maintained healthy relationships with many industry executives.
Jason hopes to lead a musical revolution blending heavy hip-hop bass and rock and roll guitars
with his own music and by influencing others that become part of his vision. The plan is to bring
their music to the masses and provide like-minded artists an opportunity to distribute their music
with a label run by an indie artist. For an artist looking for someone to entrust his or her music
to, it does not get any better than that.
