IV Real is a Kansas City, Missouri based vocal group that was formed in 1988 by Mike & Timothy "T-Hawk" Hawkins who met while working in the Kansas City, MO School District at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School. With their positive image and the addition of tenor Artis Smith, the group gained local attention and was featured on several local TV station talk shows and multiple interviews with R&B and POP radio stations. The group has had the privilege of being the opening act for such groups as The Whispers, The Dramatics, KC's own Bloodstone, Charlie Wilson of the Gap Band, Lorenzo and KC's own Lo-Key?. The group also received national attention in 1993 with their first video, "Always". The video was featured on B.E.T.'s Video Souls' Home-Made Jams Segment where it was featured 3 times in one month. In 1992 the video also had the highest viewership on American Cable Vision's new show entitled, "Music Showcase". "Always", co-written & produced by Mike Jones and Arthur "Poetry" Payne, was recorded in Detroit, MI. with overdubs being recorded in Kansas City, MO.

In 1994, tragedy struck the group when founding member Timothy "T-Hawk" Hawkins was found murdered in a local Kansas City park. Mike Jones kept the group together and performed all the way up until 2001. Thereafter, various members ventured out on solo projects while "Mike J" focused on his administrators' career in K-12 education.

The group won numerous local talent shows in KC and other Midwest venues such as, St. Louis, MO. (Mike Jones's hometown), Chicago, Indiana, and Los Angeles. The group also won an impressive Kan Film Festival Award for the video "Always".

Mike Jones is a prolific songwriter and producer, honing his craft which he learned as a student at Lincoln University (Jefferson City, MO) and earning his B.M.E. degree in Music Education. The group IV Real has reunited with Arthur "Poetry" Payne to bring back to the music industry what the industry needs at this crucial time: "originality in lyrics", "real singing", and "real harmonizing".
