Florida-based hip hop artist TEF XL unveils his latest creation, the high-powered track titled “Deuces.”
A full-on display of TEF XL’s surgically executed flow over a flawless production in which perfectly balanced beats and catchy melodic progressions merge seamlessly with the artist’s masterful performance, “Deuces” is a joint set to become a classic in the genre.
From modern rap to old school vibes, this extraordinary urban creator has truly surpassed himself, enriching his sound with the multiple influences he proudly channels into his signature style. His music draws inspiration from 80s and 90s rap, crafted with modern melodic hints of neo-soul and enveloped in smart and socially conscious lyricism. Often compared to rappers like Rakim and Jay Z, TEF XL has packed “Deuces” with an autobiographical thematic in which his thoughts, opinions and vision of life and art smoothly intertwin from start to finish.
He follows-up in style to his previous release, “JIT 2 A G,” a record streamed by thousands. A business executive with deep roots as a hip-hop artist, promoter and social advocate, TEF XL grew up in Jacksonville and learned the art of beatboxing in elementary school. At only 12 years old, he began writing lyrics. After going through a tumultuous period during his teenage years, he was inspired to elevate from thuggery to a bigger purpose, and graduated with a Doctorate of Pharmacy as a symbol of that purpose.
TEF XL has announced the upcoming release of a new album to be titled CODE SWITCH sometime this year, an audio-biographical collection sharing his story, from teenager to street entrepreneur to Fortune 500 business executive.
“Deuces” is a major track showcasing TEF XL’s dominating confidence, visionary lyrics, and natural charisma, generating a solid momentum until the drop of his next masterwork.
