Jeru The Damaja is an MC, Producer, Photographer, and filmmaker that has been an essential part of Hip Hop culture for over twenty five years, from his early collaborations with the legendary Gang Starr to the present day. Born (Kendrick Jeru Davis) in the rough East New York section of Brooklyn, Jeru honed his skill as an MC while navigating the often deadly streets of his notorious Brooklyn neighborhood. In The late 80s, Jeru was fortunate enough to be introduced to Guru of GangStarr by a childhood friend. Gang Starr first introduced Jeru The Damaja to the world on a track entitled “I’m the man” from their 1992 Daily Operation album. Jeru’s first two albums Sun Rises in The East and Wrath Of The Math were produced entirely by DJ Premier and are hailed as Hip Hop classics. Jeru’s music is featured in numerous video games, television shows, and movies like Grand Theft Auto, Narcos, and Mid 90s, to name a few. Jeru has worked with many international gold and platinum recording artists, such as Grammy nominated Groove Armada, Japans DJ Honda, the Polish rap group Slums Attack, Cut Killer from Paris, France, Drum, and Bass duo Camo and Krooked and many more. For the last few years, Jeru has decided to push his creativity to new unexplored realms by relocating to Berlin, Germany. In 2020 Jeru will release his 6th Full length Studio LP in an unconventional, unorthodox manner befitting the man known as D. Original.
