Jeru the Damaja Early life and career[edit] Jeru the Damaja was born February 14, 1972, in Brooklyn, New York, and spent his early years in the borough's East New York neighborhood, where he began rhyming at block parties as a youth. He first showcased his hardcore Brooklyn style to audiences on "I'm the Man," a track from Gang Starr's 1992 album Daily Operation.[2][3] The following year he released his first single, "Come Clean," which was produced by DJ Premier and became an instant underground hit.[2][3] Career[edit] He went missing from the scene until 1999, when he released his third album, Heroz4Hire, released together with Mizmarvel, which was his first album under his then-newly created KnowSavage Records.
