A true spearhead of the UK Hip-Hop scene, while many of his contemporaries have disappeared into obscurity over the years, Jehst has stayed at the top his game. Launching his music career in 1999, founding the label YNR (Young N Restless) from his University halls bedroom, his debut release showcased a ferociously talented wordsmith, fuelled by the bleak reality of growing up in a smack-ridden post-industrial Huddersfield. His debut album ‘Return of the Drifter’ (released in 2002) remains to this day one of the finest examples of UK Hip-Hop and British lyricism.
