ITMI: Jeru the Damaja S02E10

New Episode

The final episode of ITMI Season 2 is here, and we’re going out with a bang! We speak with East Coast hip-hop legend, Kendrick Jeru Davis, a.k.a. Jeru the Damaja.

Jeru has an incredible career that’s spanned over 30 years. He’s collaborated with a plethora of other performers, such as Guru and DJ Premier of Gang Starr, and been responsible for an album that’s rated as one of the 100 greatest hip-hop albums of all time: ‘The Sun Rises In The East’.

We linked with Jeru at the end of 2019 to talk technology in music and hip-hop’s beginnings versus its modern-day form. And, as part of our #MusicMadeUs campaign, Jeru talks in detail about race, culture and politics in hip-hop and the wider world.

Jeru also shares an amazing story about how his music literally helped save someone’s life.

Trust us: this is a finale you do not want to miss. Oh, and be sure to keep your ears open for Jeru’s next release when it drops!
