Jeru the Damaja aka D. Original Dirty Rotten Scoundrel spent his early years in East New York, Brooklyn being introduced to hip hop music in the local parks. . Jeru the Damaja then hooked up with DJ Premiere and Guru, collectively known as Gangstarr, shortly after they moved to New York in the late 1980's. Jeru first introduced his unique hardcore Brooklyn style to Hip Hop audiences on "I'm the Man" a track on Gangstarr's 1992 Daily Operations album.

Since the release of his last album Heroz 4 Hire, Jeru has been touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe, South America, and Africa. In between tours Jeru has done joint project with the gold selling UK group Groove Armada, DJ Cut Killa, and DJ Honda from Japan now based in New York. A song Jeru did, "Verses of Doom" with the production of Chad Muska, a professional skateboarder, can be heard on the Tony Hawks Pro Skater 4 released the end of 2002 and is on Chad's compilation album Muska Beatz.

It's been four years since Jeru rocked a show in Victoria, the last one being the now legendary concert at The Limit (now the One Lounge) with the Swollen Members in 1999. Don't miss this hip hop legend's highly anticipated return at the 'Birfday Bash'.
