A Day In The Life Of One Of Oakland's Finest, Jern Eye 11.25.2009 Follow Jern From The Studio To The Stage In New Video
With Jern Eye continually hustling to keep his buzz growing and promoting his new album, Vision, the Oakland emcee has decided to start a new series of videos in which fans get to see a day in the life of Jern and how he gets down. The first video starts off with Jern working hard in the studio, spitting a new verse over a Keelay & Zaire produced track. The video then picks up outside a radio station in downtown Oakland where Jern delivers some exclusive treats to DJ's Plantum and Ambush, including a never before heard remix of "Get Down" featuring perennial West Coast group The Pharcyde. The radio interview ends with Jern Eye speaking on his upcoming performance that same night at Paradise Lounge in San Francisco. The tour moves on to Jern's performance but not without a spot of bother, as we witness a mix-up with the SFPD outside the venue. Not even San Francsico's finest can stop Jern though, as he graces the stage at Paradise Lounge and delivers a highly energetic set with fans rocking along with the Oakland emcee line for line. Don't forget to pick up your copy of Jern Eye's sophomore album, Vision, available nowvia MYX Music Label.
Los Angeles native Jern Eye began crafting his skills early on at freestyle battles in famous L.A. clubs. Jern formed the staple west coast group, Lunar Heights, with friend and fellow emcee Spear Of The Nation shortly after high school, and the group eventually migrated north to Oakland to join the Bay Area's flourishing independent hip-hop scene. Once in the Bay, the group was joined by Khai Sharrieff as they began making a name for themselves opening for a number of well known groups, including Crown City Rockers, The Pharcyde, The Procussions, and more. The group subsequently released their solo effort, Crescent Moon, to high acclaim. Jern followed three years later with his solo debut, Authentic Vintage, in 2006, and toured with Hieroglyphics and Living Legends as a result of the album's success. Jern Eye's sophomore album, Vision, features production from !llmind, Jake One, Keelay & Zaire, DJ Vinroc, Def Supreme, Phil Jahns, and Artek, and collaborations with artists Cali Agents, Mistah F.A.B., Zion I, Guilty Simpson, Nightclubber Lang, and more looks to make the case for Jern's upward movement as a legitimate hip-hop talent on a national level. Vision is available now via MYX Music Label.
