A long time ago fore the rap game started I was living in my dads ballsack, ready to rocket My moms knew the minute I popped the egg my pops was egging on a star, no false prophet Out came the child breakdancing on 4s, the umbilical happened to look like a mic cord, light pause at 14 he would write 4s, steady moving to 8’s over groovin’ with bass laid over nice chords Never was great with them teachers matter fact fuck all them blackboards and whitewalls White teacher told me thought I belonged in a psych ward, I think I belong with black thought and Phife dawg Look at me now, looking kinda different isn’t he? Nah same dance and same song, but different city Other than that I got money but I’m still that same brown baby still rap willy nilly Yeah I keep it real but I still keep the movie on Rappers build community centers and keep the Gucci on Loving the same bitch for a decade and leading groupies on Sex workers paying for they daughters by slanging WOOP WOOP (That’s just life though) yeah that shit’ll keep you humble My homie almost beat his depression and then he fumbled Trapped in his own liquor locker to blocking everything out l ike old heads sayin’ new rappers just mumble Yeah yeah, ok boomer Keep your ear closed, back to old jay boomer Take your mixtape, to your own grave, boomer What’s the date? we might have to get a bouquet sooner Cuz I ain’t rockstar, I’m a craft worker I got a tax number, i don’t brag if the bag Berkin, we don’t flash unless lights go off like bag service In two or three years might just have a fucking flat-purchased I don’t know…

I give my soul to the people I give my soul to the people I give my soul to the people I give my soul I share my soul with the people I share my soul with the people I share my soul with the people I share my soul My mind is stranded, surrounded by metaphorical puns I live through melody, memories and I melt in the sun Shouts to my people, ‘cause they know how it’s done Pen to the paper, catch you later – and before it’s begun, I am the greater instigator, the machine to the gun, I write it back to the front, right to the left like Levant And you pronounce me bizarre, there’s something missing Inject it in these bars, I let them channel my vision, (And so, you) Idealise me like a planet, see me through the system The ones who understand, they always listen I’m echoing myself, a comet coming from a distance, The sun, the moon, the stars I watch them glisten, The sum and my division manifest in poems written, I am one among a hundred million more, I am an atom to the core It means, for instance, I have seen this place before My body’s been divorced and now my soul is a metaphor For being prisoner at war with the whole And with this letter I let it remind you Words will always find you, but never bind you Like paperback, monster on the track But my muscle relaxed, I’m tryna check my stash I’m sure I’m where it’s at, I’m never coming back Just like you, so sure about my place got nothing to lose And when they ask you how I did it let this track be the clue It’s the truth, no confusion, I built the illusion, The logic refuting what they say… I give my soul to the people I give my soul to the people I give my soul to the people I give my soul I share my soul with the people I share my soul with the people I share my soul with the people I share my soul

about

DeepMatter is proud to announce the debut album from multi-instrumentalist and producer, Simon Jefferis.

- -

South London based polymath Simon Jefferis has been setting mouths ajar with his expertly-crafted, atmosphere-heavy beats over the past few years. With his reputation as both a talented instrumentalist and adaptive producer steadily circulating through the city’s hip hop undercurrents, 2020 sees Jefferis return to rising label DeepMatter with his debut LP ‘Vibrations’.

From the golden era energies of ‘Back 2 Ours’ featuring Austin’s Abhi The Nomad, through to the silky smooth melodies of ‘White Rabbit’ (featuring the incredible Rosie Lowe on vocals) and shoulder swaying rhythms of ‘Something In The Water’, ‘Vibrations’ is an expertly crafted production masterclass from start to finish. With ease, Jefferis demonstrates the breadth of his musical capabilities, turning his hand to guitar, keys, drums and bass (with a little help from his friends along the way) with incredible results. Head nod inducing beats, jazz-infused keys and interweaving textures make this a stand out record amongst the already sonically rich London jazz scene.

‘Vibrations’ is released on digital / 12” vinyl on June 12th via DeepMatter.
