Son of jazz and R&B artist/composer Robert Irving III, rapper Jeremiah Jae has a solid left-field résumé, having worked with cutting-edge producers like Samiyam, Flying Lotus, and Ras G while landing on tastemaking labels like Warp and Brainfeeder. Born and raised in the Chicago area, the young Jeremiah was an alternative rock fan but came to hip-hop after encountering the Wu-Tang Clan. He formed the group Young Black Preachers with Tre Smith and Aaron Butler in 2005 and launched a series of solo mixtapes around the same time. He moved to Los Angeles in 2007 on the advice of producer Flying Lotus, while 2008 saw the Young Black Preachers make their debut with the YBP EP. Jeremiah's solo EP Dxnce followed in 2009, while his 2011 Rappayamatantra EP launched his relationship with Brainfeeder. The label released his Raw Money Raps album in 2012, then 2014 saw him switch to the Warp label for his Good Times mixtape. Moving over to the Mello Music Group, Jae's next release was the 2015 album The Night Took Us in Like Family, a collaboration with producer L'Orange. ~ David Jeffries
