Jeru the Damaja (born Kendrick Jeru Davis) aka D. Original Dirty Rotten Scoundrel was born and raised in the East New York section of Brooklyn where the everyday occurrences around him from an early age later became the source from which his rhymes flow. Jeru introduced his unique "hardcore conscious" style to hip-hop audiences on "I'm the Man" a track on Gangstarr's 1992 Daily Operations album.
In 1993 he cemented his place in the hip-hop world by releasing the now classic single "Come Clean" from his legendary album, The Sun Rises in the East. The Wrath of the Math was released two years later which included the hit singles "Ya Playin' Yaself" and "Me or the Papes." Jeru the Damaja has been proclaimed the savior of hip-hop due to his honest and straight forward critique of the state of hip-hop music.
