Jeru The Damaja delivers a healthy dose of knowledge and consciousness on “Power.” The first release from the emcee in 2020 addresses the current state of affairs in America. Everything from Kanye West to the crack epidemic gets addressed in the video that focuses squarely on Jeru sitting in a chair to deliver his potent bars.
Being stuck at home is no fun. But Jeru The Damaja makes being home dope as he connects with NPR for the “Tiny Desk Home Concert.” Sitting in front of a microphone, laptop and turntables, Jeru delivers classics such as “You Can’t Stop The Prophet,” “Ain’t The Devil Happy,” “Scientifical Madness,” “My Mind Spray” and “So Raw.”
Tim Westwood has some jewels in the vault. This time around, he goes back to a 1996 freestyle courtesy of Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna and Jeru The Damaja. 18 minutes of brilliance.
A slew of demos from Jeru The Damaja have surfaced that were all produced by the legendary Guru. Recorded back in 1991-1992, the demos are vintage Jeru and precede the release of his debut album The Sun Rises In The East. Definitely dope to listen to Jeru and Guru work together on these songs.
