Jeru is known for his work with DJ Premier and GURU from Gangstarr. He also did tracks with Group Home. The birth name of Jeru is Kendrick Jeru Davis. This rapper is from Brooklyn and gained lots of fame from the underground audience, he received lots of good critics from the underground peeps for his debut album.
He spend his early life in East New York, in the borough of Brooklyn. As a young kid he started to rhyme on block parties in Brooklyn to get his name known. He showed the on the track "I am the Man" he showed who the man is when it comes to rhyming dope. This track was featured on the album of Gangstarr called Daily Operation. The next year he dropped the hit single called "Come clean" which was produced by DJ Premier. This track was an underground hit. Jeru the Damaja came with a solo albumin 1994, this album was completely produced by DJ Premier, this album remains a hip hop classic. There was some beef going on between the Fugees and Jeru The Damaja, because Pras of Fugees mentioned on a track that Jeru was an false prophet. In 1996 Jeru came with a new album called 'Wrath of the Math'. I can remember that there was a sample used on one of the tracks, which was also used on the first Mobb Deep of album.
The third album was without the productions of DJ Premier, despite of that fact it was
critically acclaimed. The third album was called HEROS4HIRE
