Jaku () is the eighth solo album by Japanese underground hip hop producer DJ Krush. It was originally released in 2004. It features guest appearances from American rappers Mr. Lif ("Nosferatu) and Aesop Rock ("Kill Switch"), both of whom were signed to the Definitive Jux label at that time.

“Born in 1962 in Tokyo, DJ Krush is the internationally acclaimed producer, remixer and a DJ, who's produced music in vast variety of fields such as films, TV dramas and commercials. As a solo artist, he is greatly revered in the international club scene. He has done countless collaborations with artists transcending genres, such as Black Thought  of The Roots,  Herbie Hancock and k.d. lang.

After the break-up of his group Krush Posse in late 1991, Krush began pursuing his solo career and soon grabbed people's attention as the first DJ to use turntables as live instruments, doing free sessions with live musicians on stage. His 8th album Jaku was released in 2004, and topped the RPM chart of CMJ for 3 weeks in the US.

He still continues to renew this record, transcending all barriers, and leaving some distinctive footsteps of his own, achieving ever-increasing acclamation as an international artist.” – Music On Vinyl

"The more Zen moments of turntablist DJ Krush's Jaku may end up on a yakuza-gangsta flick, but his jigsaw connections between hip-hop and Japanese folk music should be beheld. ... Krush's use of space and texture remain not just formidable, but remarkably relevant." - Pitchfork
