Jahdan Blakkamoore

Jahdan Blakkamoore

For dubstep fans, the 2009 album Buzzrock Warrior was singer/rapper Jahdan Blakkamoore's breakthrough effort, but his career goes all the way back to the late '90s when he was just Jahdan and a member of the Boot Camp Clik, an Brooklyn collective of underground hardcore rappers, which included Buckshot (of Black Moon) and Smif-N-Wessun. Born in Guyana but raised in Brooklyn, Jahdan met hip-hop's revered Smif-N-Wessun through the Boot Camp, and with his reggae-influenced vocals, he became the keystone of the duo's single "Sound Bwoy Bureill." Further guest shots with DJ Premiere, Dead Prez, and even Branford Marsalis followed, all while Jahdan was working with his own band, the futuristic reggae crew Noble Society. In 2009 he found a whole new audience when he contributed to Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do, the debut album from Diplo and Switch's dancehall project Major Lazer. That same year Jahdan released Buzzrock Warrior, with production from DJ Rupture and the dubstep crew Dutty Artz.
