Jeru the Damaja spent his early years in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East New York, 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. The following year he released his first single, “Come Clean,” which was produced by DJ Premier and became an instant underground hit.
