Jeru the Damaja’s first two albums, 1994’s ‘The Sun Rises in The East’ and 1996’s ‘Wrath of the Math’ were classic albums produced entirely by DJ Premier, which was a rare occurrence outside of Gangstarr projects. Then they had a falling out, which led to the Gangstarr song “B.I. vs. Friendship”. Since then, Jeru released three other albums.
Jeru has just announced that he’s working on his untitled sixth album. “My new album is coming out soon. I’m not going to let the name out. Its a lot of biters,” he told Much Music. “I have a lot of dope rappers lined up.”
The album sounds like it’s going to a be a return to his 90’s roots with production from Large Professor, Pete Rock, JuJu from the Beatnuts and is hoping to reunite with DJ Premier.
“Hopefully I get the Premier track on there,” he added. “I spoke to Premier not too long ago.“
