Teflon Don is slowly but surely making a name for himself in the hip-hop industry. With a soulful and rich voice, he delivers his music with passion that resonates with all listeners. When artists such as Tupac
Shakur and all of the Memphis Rap Pioneers are fused, the end product is
Teflon Don. He is not only a rapper, but he is an innovative thinker and that can be found in his music.
Living by a simple mantra: “God, the Government, and the game.”, he says with these ingredients, success is attainable. Pairing his creativity with fate led Teflon Don to become the first rap artist to do a NBA Memphis Grizzlies theme song which includes the players name and coach. He had the chance of a lifetime to perform in front of thousands of Grizzlies fans at the Fed Ex Forum
along with the Garry Goines Band. Teflon Don has gained respect amongst his
peers and colleagues as the winner of the 2008 Memphisrap.com Showcase. It doesn’t stop there. His military background had paved a path for the opportunity to perform in the U.S. Army USO show in Ft. Irwin, CA. On a national scale, he has performed in the SUMC Conference in 2011 along with nationally known recording artists Dondria, Teddy Riley, Silk and many more.
His new album "God The Government The Game part. 2" was created with Michael Kerr and features a lot of big names like Dj Khaled, Young Buck, Ricco Barrino, iHeartMemphis aka iLoveMemphis, Porcelan, Chris J of The Barkays, Mike Dreams, and others. Teflon Don’s music reflects his life and his thoughts. Each song possesses different characteristics that will touch people’s emotions who feel how he
feels when he writes the songs.

On God, The Government, The Game, local rap up-and-comer
Teflon Don is helped out here and there by more established local stars
such as Tom Skeemask and Nasty Nardo. And though Nardo’s swaggering
flow on “Let’s Get It Get It,” in particular, is a welcome addition,
Teflon Don (aka Don Askew Jr.) doesn’t really need the help on this
impressive, promising debut.
Though his music is familiar — built on skittery high-hat
beats, springy synths, and a rumbling low end — Teflon Don
makes it clear from the outset that he’s aiming to be a somewhat
different kind of Memphis rapper.
“You can count on this/I spit experience,” he raps on the opening
“It’s Go’n Be Alright.” “Late at night sometimes when I cry I really
reminisce/Especially about the past/It’s getting real ugly/I wish I was
a kid in bed where my mother tucked me … Right now I see your
struggle/I cannot let it go when I think about my baby brother/Oh yeah,
we love each other/He better not ever hustle.”
Horny club anthems such as “The Way She Move” and “Shorty So Fine”
establish that Teflon Don is no schoolmarm, but this North Memphis
native sees a rising crime rate as a problem, not an opportunity, and
college as a way out, with the military as a last-chance escape plan.
This is what’s called clear-headed realism. “Call yourself a man cause
you started selling dope?” he sniffs on the title track, “Pussy-ass
nigga, I’d rather sell my hood hope.”
On God, The Government, The Game, Teflon Don is pure
Southern, rough-edged musically and vocally but with a head on his
shoulders and a willingness to tap into honest emotions: At his best,
he’s somewhat reminiscent of young David Banner. If he generally avoids
some of his scene’s lyrical potholes, he can’t escape some of the
There are overly repetitive choruses here (“Count My Money”). And
sometimes the music gets draggy without the saving grace of a
compelling groove (“I Represent”). But overall this is a promising
introduction to someone who’s talented enough to push his game much
further. (“God, the Government, the Game,” “Let’s Talk About,” “Going
Through Some Thangs”) — Grade: B

Introducing Memphis Hustler Teflon Don’s ”Life of a Struggler”
APRIL 29, 2006 Hip Hop NewsHip-HopMemphis RapNews By Memphis Rap
0 Likes 0 Comments
“I put this on my mother bruh, I am a struggler, slaving 9 to 5 will turn a good boy into a hustler.” That’s the anthem of the single release off “Life of a Struggler” from Memphis’ own hustler Teflon Don, who quotes Yo Gotti as being a hustler as well. “..I recall being in the same classroom with him. He was a true hustler he would sell you a tape for 5 dollars and you would think it was twenty songs on there…,” states Teflon in an interview with MemphisRap.com.
“During tests I would see him beating on the table rapping low to hisself but serious and it inspired me to learn how to write and rap to my written lyrics. In class we used to freestyle against each other which he used to tear my a*s up. But this is real talk and I appreciate him for motivating me to keep pushing,” Teflon continues.
This quote stemmed from the MemphisRap.com question: “You’ve worked with a number of known artists such as B.G., Yo Gotti, Tom Skeemask, Mac E and others. Who was the most memorable and why?”
As more in-depth questions are presented throughout the interview, Teflon answers revealing “I am as real as it comes and I know alot of artist who be flaugin like they this and that and I promise it burns me up because they are scared to be theirselves. They worry about what a another figure thinks about them, not me.”
The interview also touches on his military background, his take on Dj’s lack of support to local artists, his open mic event held every Thursday in Memphis, and more.
