Meet Da Jedi
Born Kenneth Charles Roby Jr. young HomieDaJedi began following in his father’s musical footsteps at age 9. He learned to play the trumpet and eventually 4 other instruments before graduating from high school. At 13 he and a friend wrote their first rap to JoeSki Love’s “Pee Wee Herman”. The two performed the song at a local Community Centers talent show, and won $100. With a fire ignited in him, he constantly wrote rhymes and perfected his skills at “beat boxing”.
At 18 he joined the military and continued his passion for hip hop by creating new cadences to march to, organizing emcee ciphers and battles, and seizing every opportunity to show off his lyrical ability. After completing his tour of duty in the army, he moved back to the westcoast searching for the next step that would further him in the music industry.
In Reno, NV he met Cameron Robinson. Cameron seemed to share the passion for the game, so the two formed the tag team known as The Unfadeables. The group took out a loan and built their own recording studio. They performed throughout the west coast. Out of necessity, Homie started Major Weight Muzic, the first ever hip hop music label in Reno, Nevada. (Feel free to look it up.) The duo compiled an undeniable roster of producers, rappers, singer/songwriters and they created lots of great music. In 1995 they released their debut album, MAJOR WEIGHT MUZIC presents EAST ON 80, which still gets spins today! Homie was able to take the label on tour and book shows in an area where quite frankly, very few “urban” acts were allowed. Homie wore the hats of C.E.O., owner, producer, engineer, manager and artist.
In 2000, The Unfadeables took their act to Atlanta, GA to team up with Pat Smith and Just Groovin Ent. They formed a new production team known as “The LabRatz” that enjoyed a fair amount of success. In 2005 HomieDaJedi began managing, producing and developing artist thru his own 9th Dynasty Entertainment, all the while still recording music of his own. After seeing only limited success with the artist that he’d been working with, he decided that the best way to show the world what he knew, would be to lead by example. With an arsenal of quality songs that would stagger the average hip hop enthusiast, Homie has now thrown his hat in the ring. Homie credits his influences DJ Quik, E-40, 2PAC and Scarface.
On 11-11-11, armed with years of experience, quick wit, a large dose of that “Big Boy Swag”, and a message, he released his sophomore album, “What Real Is…” What is that message you ask?
“I am but a vessel for these words, and it’s time to be heard!”
