Big Mike Clemons from "SWV Reunited" stars in the WE tv reality docu-series.

Big Mike Clemons is an internationally renowned drummer and producer. A native of Stratford, Connecticut, Mike got his start in music through the support of his mother, Pastor Rosa Clemons, and their church. As a toddler, his family noticed Mike's propensity for rhythm, and he received his first full drum set at the age of three.

In 1994, shortly after graduating high school, Mike got his first major break. He was discovered by R&B producer, Stanley Brown, who hired Mike to play drums on tour for Aaron Hall of Guy. The exposure and connections Mike garnered as a result of his work with Aaron Hall led to a long string of recordings and tours with several major artists including Usher, SWV, Dru Hill, and Mary J. Blige. Following the 8701 tour with Usher, Mike took a much-needed break from touring to pursue another passion, production. In partnership with his brother Nathan, Mike produced hit songs for several artists including Mary J. Blige, Coko, Ruff Endz, Out of Eden, Tyrese, SWV, Dru Hill and many others.

Mike and Coko had no interest in each other when he played for SWV in the late 1990s. It wasn't until 2003, when they were both in different places in their lives, that they instantly fell for each other. They got married and Coko got pregnant all in the same year. Ten years later, they are still in love, still friends and still going hard.

In addition to his work as a musician and producer, Mike is a burgeoning entrepreneur and health advocate. Mike has proven through his own hard work that it's possible to gain and maintain a healthy lifestyle, no matter your age or occupation. After several years of being overweight, Mike has lost over 100 pounds and keeps it off through a lifestyle change of diet and exercise. Together with Coko, Mike is preparing to launch a fitness clothing line.
