For the past fifteen years, Jedi Mind Tricks has established itself as one of the most critically-acclaimed groups in the underground hip-hop scene, with their raw and gritty flavour. From their debut album in 1996, The Psycho-social, to their seminal sophomore release, Violent By Design, to their musical expansion heard on Servants In Heaven and Kings In Hell, JMT has made an indelible impression on the independent music scene while arguably forging its own subgenre of rap.
Led by the fiery vocals of controversial frontman, Vinnie Paz, and his venerable rhyme partner, Jus Allah, the group has built one of the most commercially successful careers in independent music, together and independently. Throughout the groups history, JMT has collaborated with rap veterans, including GZA, Kool G Rap, 7L & Esoteric, Sean Price, Ras Kass, Canibus, Percee P, Killah Priest, Immortal Technique, Virtuoso, Louis Logic, R.A. the Rugged Man, Tragedy Khadafi, and Ill Bill. The group has sold over 300,000 albums in the United States and 400,000 albums worldwide, all of which were released independently, and has a growing worldwide profile, built upon a notoriously live show.
This year, JMT is set to drop its seventh studio album, Violence Begets Violence, through Vinnie Paz’s own imprint, Enemy Soil. Though JMT fans can expect more of the uncompromising, unrelenting brand of hardcore rap music that has become the group’s signature sound, Violence Begets Violence marks a change as longtime JMT producer, Stoupe, hands over production duties to a new wave of talented producers honed on the JMT sound.
