Biography

Burke The Jurke is an emcee born and raised in South Philadelphia that made a name for himself in the local scene early on by slaughtering cyphers, open mics and any rappers that ever wanted to test his skill. Burke was know for his live shows before he even settled down in the studio. Without any albums released he has done concerts with Wu-Tang Clan, Jedi Mind Tricks, AOTP, Reef The Lost Cauze, Heltah Skeltah, and many more. “I started writing rhymes in my early teens” Burke says. “I remember getting chills from listening to emcees like Nas and Big Pun. …chills. Their wordplay, content, enthusiasm, charisma. I knew I wanted to do what they did in some way.”

Lets not even get into Burke as an emcee, lets go with hip-hop head/music lover. If you have ever listened to any music with Burke, you know how diverse his taste is. Take a ride with Burke around the city of philly and you’ll hear tunes from Nas to Dean Martin to Wu-Tang to Phill Collins back to Mobb Depp, and so on. God forbid your in a car that had satellite radio, you might get bullied into listening to classical music. ” I like any music thats dope” Burke says. ” Its meant to put you in a mood or make you feel somethin, it can be rage, lust, relaxation, excitement, love, pain. I mean theres alot of things music can do. I’ll never understand a person who just don’t incorporate music in their life, it baffles me”.

This is not going to be a real biography on Burke, because he told me, ” Tellin’ a person who you are and what your like will only go so far. If people are gona get to know you foreal, its not gona be through an interview or a bio.
