Most definitely appreciated!!!
Jeru just knew how to wreck a beat AND be on some elevation and education (knowledge of self) $*!@.Let's not even get into the production (which was way ahead of it's time) and the concepts were flawless!It's really too bad they stopped working together (Same goes for Pete & CL).

Jeru is a better MC than Guru, but no way did he make better music with Preme than Gang Starr.

Jeru is very appreciated. Don't get much iller than "Come Clean".

he's so underappreciated...
Its another case where people only remember the production or the beats (ex: if someone says come clean...the first thing they gonna talk about is the beat)....

but he had some crazy spit to him as well...

"Aint the Devil Happy" is my @!@+....

I wonder what he's doing wit himselfthesedays...

What's amazing is how Jeru was just one of the dozens of really great, progressive MC's from that day. There are maybe three or four MC's today that could be considered that.

Come Clean is one of te songs that defines the genre for me. Soo sick.
