Kendrick Jeru Davis was, and remains, one of the most unique voices in hip hop. A self-confessed ‘weirdo’, Jeru owned the early-90s underground rap scene in New York, solo and with his affiliations with the likes of Gang Starr. While the United States and the rest world were starting to really take notice of the ‘phase’ that was hip hop, Jeru was staying true to himself, a quality that has lead him to one of the longest careers anyone in hip hop has ever carved out.
