Jitu “tha Jugganot” – Microphone Controller, Mild Sauce Rapper Decomposer What does it mean to be a “legend?” Flashback to Chicago, 1991; a group called Ten Tray gave Chicago what it needed. An emcee emerged representing Chicago both local and national level. This emcee came with a message that inspired a generation of cats to step their game up. Flash forward to 2005, with hip-hop in mortal danger, the legend has returned.
“Jitu” is an African name given to him in 1995 meaning, “A giant among men” Not only is Jitu known for his talent in the school of hip hop, he is a youth program coordinator and community organizer on the south side of Chicago. He swarmed the game in 2002, entering battles and open mics. Leaving crowds in a state of disbelief, Jitu has humbled emcees all over the country, blending a once in a lifetime voice with an expansive vocabulary and ferocious delivery. On the underground, many call him the best they have ever heard!
