Saint Jermaine born and raised in the area on Chicago's south side known as the Lowend. Where many project buildings once stood. He spent his childhood running around in the Ida B. Wells and the Dearborn homes. He was born into a huge yet poor family. Following in his fathers footsteps; he began writing rhymes and rapping at the age of eight. He continued to be moved from one neighborhood to another. By the eighth grade, Saint had attended eight different schools. He then moved in with his grandparents in a small suburb near Chicago. Like most kids his age; he ran the streets. Often leading to his arrest. At the age of seventeen he dropped out of high school, attaining a GED six months afterwards. After attending community college for a few semesters, he decided that he needed more than a degree to truly acquire success. At the age of twenty his Grandfather sold him his first guitar. St. Jermaine then taught himself to play by ear.
Saint Jermaine has big plans for himself, his music, and his city! He wishes to bring instrumentation back into black communities for the young and old. He also aims to create a genre of his own. Rooting from his love for hip hop and old Chicago blues; as well as the jazz greats and rock music, his sound gives off the vibe of our many pop cultures in their beginning days.
His latest project entitled "B.A.R.S (Boring A** Rap S***)"; (hosted by Dj VDub)is set to drop August 15th, this year on Livemixtapes.com. On it he constantly addresses his dissatisfaction of the music and music business that's supposed to represent his generation and his culture. The product gives off the vibes of a New Era, yet reminds you of what old school hip hop was all about.
