Jamie Adenuga (born 4 May 1985 in Hackney, London), better known by his stage name JME, is an English grime artist with African roots from Nigeria. He is the co-founder of the crew and label Boy Better Know. Adenuga was previously part of the grime crew Meridian along with his brother, Joseph Adenuga (also known as Skepta). As well as working with Boy Better Know, Adenuga now focuses mainly on his own solo ambitions. JME has appeared on many grime DVDs including Practice Hours where Bossman, Big H and JME did a freestyle over the beat to his hit single "Serious".

In October 2008, he became one of a small number of unsigned artists to headline at the London Astoria. As his fanbase has grown, JME has been known to travel all over Europe and more recently New York with Tim Westwood to perform his hit songs.

JME is known for rejecting the stereotypes that many grime MCs embrace (such as violence, drugs and sex) and often reflects this in his lyrics. He is active on Twitter, however, he is well known for not following anybody on the social networking site.
