Prolific hip hop artist TEF XL is out with yet another stunning piece called “RNR”. Spanning around three minutes, the track starts with an ominous melody and as the beats step in, the audience’s attention is immediately fixed on the artist. Authentic and truly exquisite, “RNR” brings back the genuine quality of the good-old hip hop with the soulful twist only TEF could come up with. The song focuses on real life experiences and the artist’s ideology and worldviews which makes it that much more relatable to the listener.
A talented rapper who is certainly no newcomer to the game, TEF XL is simply on fire this year. He has already dropped “YOU” and “Deuces” earlier this year, pumping his popularity and conquering new fans. “Deuces” in particular is an extraordinary piece that was accompanied by a powerful music video that depicts TEF doing what he does best – rapping! “JIT 2 A G” is another one of his most famous singles that features talented fellow artists J. HARRIS and Spinabenz. Amassing hundreds of thousands of views, TEF is all about the realness and the world wants more!
TEF grew up in Jacksonville, FL learning how to beatbox in elementary school and began writing lyrics at the young age of 12. As an ambitious but misguided adolescent, TEF submerged himself in the destructive street life that led to troubling experiences he had to learn from. Over time and many hard lessons, it was through the mentoring of a few OG’s that TEF was inspired to elevate from thuggery to a bigger purpose. TEF would go on to graduate with a Doctorate of Pharmacy as a symbol of that purpose.
Naming Jay-Z, Rakim, Jeezy, and Kendrick Lamar as some of his influences, TEF XL has been working hard on his upcoming debut album CODE SWITCH, an audio-biographical depiction of the socioeconomic and relationship-based circumstances the artist has overcome during his life to realize his dreams, from teenager to street entrepreneur to Fortune 500 business executive.
