Keeping the company of addicts, sex workers, gutter punks, train hoppers, b-boys, graffiti writers, traveling musicians, & frequent indulgence in ill-advised amounts of LSD inspired his writing in strange and unique ways. It expanded his outlook and expression into something that speaks both to and for the disenfranchised of our culture, as well as nurturing his cynical, tongue-in-cheek writing style.
As a member of hip-hop funk collective GFE, the Jerk has opened for Run-D.M.C. and Parliament Funkadelic as well as Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Soundtribe Sector 9. He and TopR headlined such national tours as Alcoholics Unanimous and The Marathon of Shame. His 2008 single “Small Town USA” went to #2 on the CMJ college hip-hop charts.
In April 2015, the Jerk releases his sixth album, Death By Misadventure.
