Releases:[Life As We Know It] [Gunz Down (single)] [The Nu Jerusalem Project Volume 1] [Faith (single)] [Chronicles : The Story So Far] [Heaven Presents (single)] [One Time Ta Die (single)]
Info:GreenJade from London already made a name for themselves with the songs "One Time Ta Die" and "Heaven Presents". Both have been rerecorded for the album "Chronicles : The Story So Far" in 2003.

Members
The members of GreenJade are 3rd Son, DJ Secret Weapon, Judah, Practical Wizdom and Wei the Gatekeeper. Logikal after ten years left the crew and his place is taken by DJ Secret Weapon. They describe their music as tru-skool.

Evolution
GreenJade originally began as a dance troop under the name “Poetic Justice” in the early 1990’s and became the “Green Jade Sect” in 1992, the name suggested by Wei, inspired by a Kung Fu movie. Within 2 years the crew grew to over 25 members, but personal issues with members in the group was beginning to lead them towards violence until one of the members involved became a Christian.

Dialogue
This began a dialogue that affected the whole crew and ended with 15 members also becoming Christians, preferring to use their talents to promote the positive. In 1996, GreenJade was reborn and refocused; dropping the Sect, the definition of their name had also changed.

Nominations
GreenJade stepped down from the MOBO Awards 2008 after being nominated in the Best Gospel category. The group wrote a letter to officials of the Music of Black Origin Awards organisation to be removed from the nomination’s list. The group said it's request was granted by officials. Talking to UB1, group member Wizdom said being nominated for a MOBO award in the Gospel category "caused a concern" because of the sensitive school work the group does through the Gunz Down community project. The project involves going into schools, some different in religious beliefs, and addressing the issue of gun and knife crime. "We are honoured to be considered for a nomination but it may conflict with our work in schools. We don’t want anything getting in the way of that," explained Wizdom.

Albums
A new project entitled "Life As We Know It" is released in 2008 through their own label Jade Eye Knight Records.
