    Jeru The Damaja - "Your Words Are Your Weapons"

    Jeru The Damaja - "Your Words Are Your Weapons"

    It’s the final episode of ITMI, Season Two, 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!
    Enjoy!

    As part of our Music Made Us campaign, Andrew talks about that perfect connection between music and technology.

Great Insight & Fun Podcasts

LOVE these podcasts! Dr J’s natural inquisitiveness brings the best out of each guest speaker. The content of each podcast comes from a different angle. Really recommend having a listen.

Kevin Tuffy ,

Great podcast

Excellent podcast. Informative and amusing. Jen's a great host and a real superstar in waiting. Always great guests so far who give a very astute insight into the music industry and always come across as genuine.

DOC_YNWA ,

Really, really Helpful...NO BS

I listened to this not knowing what to expect. Basically you got honest mature picture about the music industry and what really matters. None of the usual YouTuber BS that I have come across that is old blokes rattling on about the industry back in the day. Great stuff from Dr Jen and northern charm from Julie.
