US MC, rapper and educator Jahi shares his ultimate Spotify playlist.

Oakland rapper Jahi is frontman of PE 2.0, the next generation of iconic New York rap group Public Enemy. Jahi first met Public Enemy legend Chuck D after performing at The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1999, kick-starting a friendship and music collaboration which saw him join Public Enemy’s 20th Anniversary Tour as MC and led to the formation of PE 2.0 in 2014. Jahi has released numerous underground solo projects, toured with the likes of Jay-Z, Black Eyed Peas, Blackalicious, The Roots and Mary J Blige, and enjoys a successful career as a educator and programme manager.
