ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Foul Mouth Jerk is an independent hip hop artist raised in northern New Jersey. Growing up in the late 80’s & early 90’s he participated in what is often referred to as the music’s golden age. Beginning rapping in 1988, he spent his high school years battling in the school cafeteria, parks and street corner cyphers. Later he would cut his teeth on stage at open mic’s in Newark & Manhattan and perform at various parties around NJ & NYC. During his junior year of high school Foul Mouth was kicked out of his mother’s house and subsequently carried on his search for stage time while living on the street & sleeping in parking lots and abandoned vehicles. He credits this period with shaping much of his rap style.
Not long after graduating high school the Jerk decided to see as much of the world as possible and began traveling the country, earning gas and food money as a street performer freestyling over the drums of his traveling partner. This carried on in cities around the US, from Burlington, VT to Miami, from San Francisco to New Orleans’ famous French Quarter. This period found him in a wide range of places & situations with an eclectic cast of characters from many walks of life, that most people never experience, largely on what would be considered the underside of American society. This broadened and further shaped his unique outlook and expression into something that speaks to and for a much wider cross section of the disenfranchised of our culture than most of his contemporaries.
It was along these travels that Foul Mouth met the people with whom he would later form the hip hop/funk collective GFE. In 1997 the group based itself out of the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina & began recording as an eight piece live band. The group began touring nationally shortly thereafter playing in nearly every state in the union, at clubs, colleges & festivals. They opened for such legends as Run DMC and P-Funk, as well as current stars such as Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Atmosphere. The group has also recorded with such heavyweights as George Clinton, Eric Krasno of Soulive and Tame One of the Artifacts.
Foul Mouth has maintained a steady work ethic throughout his ten plus years as a professional musician, touring & recording with GFE and as a soloist. He currently has four full length albums with the band and recently released his forth solo outing. His latest work, entitled “Streetlight Music” features appearances by Masta Ace, Murs, El Da Sensei, and one of hip hop’s original godfathers Grandmaster Caz of the The Cold Crush Brothers.
In May of 2008 his song “Small Town USA” peaked at #2 on the college hip hop singles charts, and in June the album Streetlight Music peaked at #10 on the CMJ hip hop album charts. The album also received four out of five stars from Urb magazine, and a stellar review in The Source Magazine’s Independent’s Day section, as well as many positive reviews from websites & blogs both in the US and Europe.
