Jeremiah Jae is an American rapper and producer from the neighborhood of Jackson Park Highlands in Chicago, Illinois.[1] First signed to the LA label Brainfeeder, in 2007, when the Ann Arbor based producer Samiyam passed on Jae's Lunch Special Part I to Flying Lotus. After a post, and then private message on his MySpace profile, Jae was flown out to LA to work with Flying Lotus.[2][third-party source needed]

Life and career[edit]

The son of jazz composer and musician, Robert Irving III,[3] Jae grew up in a musical home studying classical piano and guitar. Having also taught himself the drums, and played in various bands, Jae's earliest influences included glam rock and the British indie band Placebo.[2][third-party source needed] It was only later on, through groups such as Souls of Mischief and Wu-Tang Clan, that he discovered hip-hop and beatmaking. It was this that enabled him to bridge the gap between all his interests.[4]

Whilst still a teenager he formed Young Black Preachers (YBP) with his god-brothers, Tre Smith and Aaron "Projeck" Butler, and released a number of EPs alongside his solo work. It was this output, and his Lunch Special mixes that drew the attention of Steve Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, and led to Jae's move to Los Angeles in 2007.[4]

After spending 6 months involving himself in the LA beat scene, and meeting the rest of the Brainfeeder roster, Jae was signed to the imprint.[4] Following the release of Dxnce, Jae's debut Brainfeeder project Rappayamatantra was released in 2011.[5] Throughout that time Jae has continued the Lunch Special series,[6] and contributed beats to the Captain Murphy mixtape.[7]

Having toured extensively with label mate Teebs, Jae released his debut album, Raw Money Raps, in 2012.[8] In 2013, Jae released the Bad Jokes mixtape featuring members of the Black Jungle Squad and production from Jae himself, Jonwayne, Oliver the 2nd and Flying Lotus.[9]

The Night Took Us In like Family, his collaborative album with producer L'Orange, was released on Mello Music Group in 2015.[10]
