  • Artist: Jeff Jones
  • Track: I Do What I Want To
  • Producer: Will Campbell
  • Album: I Smell Like Smoke Too

In 2004, Jeff Jones was all set to release his debut album, God Given. Unfortunately, just as the LP was being promoted, the Warner-distributed label he was signed to (Elektra Records) folded, leaving Jones without a deal. Nonetheless, the LA native has kept himself busy writing numerous hooks for producer Poli Paul (Chingy & Midwest City's Cadillac Doors, LAX Boyz & Jazze Pha's Ride Like This, Shawty Lo, Trey Songz, & Lil Wayne's Supplier), and is now finally ready to release his reworked debut album, I Smell Like Smoke Too, later this month. On single I Do What I Want To, the versatile emcee blends the key ingredients of both a street and a radio hit over trunk-rattling production by Will Campbell. Jones' hit-making power is blindingly clear on this cut, so how long will it be before another major label picks him up again?
