NOLA MusiCon 2023


Don Bartholomew


The son of the legendary Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer, Lifetime GRAMMYAchievement Award winner, Songwriter Hall-of-Famer, Blues Hall-of-Famer and rhythm and blues pioneer, Dave Bartholomew, Don Bartholomew (aka Don B) has always admired his father and wanted to follow in his foot steps. He started playing drums and reading music in the 3rd grade. By the time he reached High School, Hiphop was emerging, and like most teenagers, he was totally obsessed with the genre. He was also heavily influenced by R&B pop music. Don put together his first group, Friends 9, with three friends and his younger brother Ron Bartholomew and enjoyed quite a bit of local success in New Orleans. A huge fan of rap, Don moved into music production, where he caught the ears of a lot of New Orleans rap pioneers such as Mia X., Soulja Slim and Lil Wayne. Don’s studio, Hitts Studio, was the go-to recording spot for all the local rap and R&B pop artists and record labels like Cash Money and No Limit Records. Don is currently the CEO of Bangn World, the umbrella for his Bangn Recordings and Bartholomew Boyz productions, which he shares with his producer sons Supa Dezzy and Trakkabeats.
