Bravehearts are an East Coast hip-hop group from the Queensbridge housing projects in New York City. The group's roster originally included Jungle (son of jazz trumpeter Olu Dara and younger brother of hip hop star Nas) (born Jabari Jones), Wiz (born Mike Epps), and Horse (born E. Gray). Horse left the group in 2002, and Jungle and Wiz carried on as a duo.[1] However, it has been mentioned in one of Jungle's songs that Wiz has also left the group and has been replaced with Nashawn (Cousin of Nas and Jungle).

Signed to Columbia Records as part of Nas' Ill Will Records imprint, Bravehearts first emerged in 1998, with a track on the soundtrack to the Hype Williams film Belly. From there, the Nas protégés moved on to the QB's Finest compilation album, and saw their track "Oochie Wally" go gold. Jungle and Wiz then began working on their full-length debut for Columbia. In the meantime, they appeared on 50 Cent's mixtape-style Guess Who's Back?, supporting 50 and Nas (prior to their beef), on the track "Who U Rep With."

The debut full-length album Bravehearted was released in December 2003. The album featured guest appearances from Nas, Nashawn, Lil Jon, Jully Black and Teedra Moses, and the group scored a hit single with the Lil Jon-produced track "Quick to Back Down". There also may have been a slight diss on 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) on track 5 called "Bravehearted" on their album, Jungle also takes a shot at Jay-Z. Jungle states in his verse. "Jungle will live by the morals of the street not like snitch C.J. or bitch Jay-Z." Recently Jungle was featured on a recent diss track on G-Unit and Dipset with rapper Q-Butta called "Gun On Me."

In 2008 they released their second album, Bravehearted 2.
