Representing the Gang Starr Foundation, Jeru The Damaja is hitting the UK shores on the 6th December 2012 (one day before the 4our Pillars jam).
As well as the Dirty Rotten Scoundrel there is a whole heap of talent on the bill performing alongside him and this is all being produced and promoted by my homies the Strictly Business boys.

The Lords of the Underground smashed it in Sept and this month we’ve got the dirty rotten scoundrel himself…JERU THE DAMAJA ||| Brooklyn, NY – Gang Starr Foundation ..Since his 1994 debut instant classic album The Sun Rises In The East, Jeru has continued to command respect from everyone with even a vague interest in hip hop – never compromising a shed of credibility in carving an 18 year career consisting of 5 top albums and regular incredible collaborations with Guru and DJ Premier.” Go buy your tickets here (BE QUICK) because is very limited and please check the Strictly Business event page......"
