Jokeren is a Danish rapper from Copenhagen who embarked on a solo career in 2003 and set off on a run of steady Top Ten successes. Born Jesper Dahl on June 13, 1973 in the NÃ¸rrebro area of Copenhagen, he began his recording career in the 1990s as a member of the Danish rap group Den Gale Pose. Fellow Danish rap star BlÃ¦s Bukki (born Lasse Bavngaard) was also a member of Den Gale Pose. From the mid-'90s until the early 2000s, Den Gale Pose released the albums Mod Rov (1996), SÃ¥dan Er Reglerne (1998), and Definitionen Af En Stodder (2001), plus numerous singles. Jokeren subsequently embarked on a solo career, making his full-length album debut in 2003 with Alpha Han (2003) on EMI. The album was a blockbuster success, peaking at number three on the Danish albums chart, and includes the Top Ten hit single "Det Ku Ha VÃ¦ret Dig." In the wake of this debut success, Jokeren founded the vanity label Flamingo Records in association with Universal Music and released the follow-up album Gigolo Jesus (2005). A Top Ten hit on the albums chart, Gigolo Jesus spawned the single "RastlÃ¸s." Third album Den TÃ¸rstige Digter (2009) was another Top Ten hit. The singles "GÃ¥ VÃ¦k!" (featuring BlÃ¦s Bukki) and "Sig Ja" were likewise Top Ten hits. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
