A 20-year veteran of Brooklyn’s music scene, Jahdan has worked with everyone from Smif N Wessun (he’s on the remix and the video for their “Sound Bwoy Bureill”) to Branford Marsalis and DJ Premier (back when he was going by Blackheart Scavenger) and Major Lazer, not to mention his own long-running group Noble Society, and solo releases like “The General” (see below). Most recently, he has turned up as one of the principal songwriters for Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated project, lending his voice to the project’s latest single, “Lighters Up.”
