avatar for Don B

Don Bartholomew aka Don B, CEO and Executive Producer of Bang-N Records is the son of the Legendary Godfather of Rock & Roll Dave Bartholomew who as sole producer of Fats Domino is responsible for creating the original New Orleans sound. Continuing with a legacy of producing great music and great artist, Don B as a producer and owner of Purple Room Studio has worked with most of New Orleans local rap stars such as Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Mia X, the late Soulja Slim and Magnolia Shorty. As one of the longest running full service studios, the Purple Room Studio hosted first recording for Cash Money Records and No Limit Records prior to their national acclaim. As a true percussionist Don B can create any genre beat. As a producer he can develop any artist into a Supa Star! Don along side his brother Ron B established Bartholomew Boyz Productions. This Production team has now expanded to Don B's sons Don “ Supa Dezzy” Bartholomew, Blake “Trakka” Bartholomew, Chris “ YC” McGhee, and Torial “Red Phoenix” Ladmirault. Since the boom of Music videos in the 80's and 90's and now YouTube, Don has been able to exhibit his talents on film. His latest video “Born in the Country” featuring his father sparked the interest of the Producers of the HBO hit series “Treme”. Don B's experience in the industry launched his contribution to the series as Hip Hop Music Consultant. His cameo appearance in Season I as himself (Don B, music producer) landed him a recurring role in Season II and III. His knowledge and in depth involvement in New Orleans Music culture gained him a position behind the scenes as Hip Hop Music Director.
