Donald Askew Jr, better known as Teflon Don, grew up in the Breedlove neighborhood of Smoky City in Memphis TN. For most of his childhood, Teflon was raised by his mother and grandmother as an only child. His mother, a single mom working three jobs to pay the bills, had to rely heavily on his grandmother in the early 90s. She raised him most of his life, and inspired him to follow his heart and dreams. On April 29, 2001, he made the weighty decision to join the army. It was then,while stationed at Fort Hood Texas that he got his nickname, Teflon Don. With such a wealth of experiences to draw from in his music,it’s no surprise that Teflon Don’s debut effort, 'God, The Government, ThebGame' was a nominee for Best Indie Rap Album of the Year in 2009. This is the same year that he created the NBA anthem for the Memphis Grizzlies, titled MEMPHIS. Grizzlies. Then came ringtone and distribution deals with VIO Mobile and Select-O-Hits and two movie soundtrack deals in 2009 and 2010 for Money Makers and Daylight FadesTeflon was signed to PTE/SODMG for a one year contract.
