Samson Jones, better known as Jonesmann, is a German rapper. He was born in Frankfurt to an African American father and a German mother. He was signed to Azad's label Bozz Music and Sony BMG. Now he is signed to his own label 'Echte Musik'.
Jonesmann was introduced to Azad and Jeyz by D-Flame in 1992, and founded the crew "Chabs" with Jeyz and Chan in 1994. They were fairly successful and were produced among others by Roey Marquis II.. The group disbanded in 2001 because the members wanted to focus on their respective solo careers. In the following year, Jonesmann was featured on releases by Roey Marquis II., Olli Banjo, Jack Orsen and Azad.
His first solo release was the Best of Mixtape in 2003. One year later, Jonesmann produced a 7 track EP called "Gesucht, Gefunden" together with Pal One, where he first attempted to sing, instead of only rap. In the same year, Jonesmann was signed by Bozz Music and was featured on the sampler BOZZ Music Vol. 1. After another mixtape at the end of 2004, "Macht, Käse, Flows, Cash" (Power, Cheese, Flows, Cash), his first solo album, S.J., and one more mixtape were released in mid-2006.
Also in 2006, Jonesmann toured with Xavier Naidoo.
