Jedi Mind Tricks

Jedi Mind Tricks return to London after their last sold out in 2012 with UK support from DJ Snuff & EOW LDN.

JMT has been surprising the music world since it emerged in the 1990s. Vinnie Paz and Stoupe The Enemy Of Mankind began making music together in 1992. Four years later, they released The Amber Probe E.P. In 1997, the duo dropped its debut album, The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological & Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Consciousness. It hit its stride in 2000 on the critically acclaimed Violent By Design album, which also featured rapper Jus Allah and included its seminal “Heavenly Divine” single. The collection established what would be Jedi Mind Tricks’ signature approach: often menacing, regularly high-octane beats and raps that grappled with religion, societal woes and violence, among other charged topics.

In the 2000s, the group expanded, introducing its Army of the Pharaohs collective as both Vinnie Paz and Stoupe released solo projects. After not working with one another for several years, Vinnie and Stoupe decided to meet for dinner to see if they should reunite for another album.

“By the time the waitress brought the water over, it was like we were back in this crazy bizarre way of dealing with each other that we’ve had for 23 years,” Vinnie says. “I was like, ‘It’s still there,’ that ‘it’ thing that people talk about. It can’t be created or manufactured. It just exists or it doesn’t. I suppose I was worried whether or not it was still there because I guess we both would have walked away and just done different things musically. But after the first couple sentences, I was like, ‘It’s still there.’”
