Bjorn Majestik is an Emcee whose best known for his innate freestyle abilities. From local Hip-Hop events to your cousin's living room to Broadway houses and as a Times Square attraction, his bars set the tone. Bjorn has been featured on many platforms including OKAY PLAYER, BBC, National Geographic, Gregory Porter's Popular Voices television series.  He has performed and lectured for institutions such as Princeton University, Sarah Lawrence College, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, and at Union Square, where he became involved with Legendary Cyphers (LC).

Born Jason Bjorn Hernandez, he was raised in New York City and exposed to various cultures. In 1995 he began taking an interest in freestyling, but it was at Black Betty's in Brooklyn (circa 2001) when he began performing for crowds. Aside from recording for many Hip-Hop albums and engaging in cyphers, Bjorn spent several years rocking within the poetry scene, further honing his craft and character as a wordsman.

In 2013 he was invited to be part of Legendary Cyphers by LC founder Majesty. Bjorn has been a part of the collective ever since, including a performance with the group at a SUNY Geneseo for the 5th Annual Hip-Hop Symposium.
