The Sun Rises in the East is the debut album of American hip hop rapper Jeru the Damaja, released May 24, 1994 on PayDay Records. Production on the album was handled by DJ Premier. The album features fellow Gang Starr Foundation member Afu-Ra. The album cover depicts the World Trade Center on fire only one year after the 1993 bombing of the North Tower. The Sun Rises in the East was well received by most music critics upon its release. It is considerably significant in hip hop, as it contributed to the revival of the East Coast hip hop scene, along with albums such as Wu-Tang Clan's Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993), Nas's Illmatic (1994) and Black Moon's Enta Da Stage (1993). The album has been considered by critics to be Jeru the Damaja's best work.

The intellectual Brooklyn emcee's sprawling 1996 release, Wrath of the Math was the follow-up to his classic debut, The Sun Rises In The East and it features even more genius production from the great DJ Premier. The album's lyrical content was largely centered around Jeru's commentary on the decline of hip hop during the mid-'90s and the need for a new rap consciousness. Even though the tracks "Whatever," "One Day" and the hit single "Ya Playin' Yaself" represent some of the finest work the pair ever produced, unfortunately Wrath of the Math would be the last collaboration between the hip-hop legends.
