Clever Jeff – Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop and Soul Music

clever jeff - adult contemporary hip-hop and soul Who is Clever Jeff?

Song writer, producer, rapper, singer, DJ, emcee

What kind of music does he make?

Hip-Hop, Deep House, Soulful House, Classic Soul, Jazz

Clever Jeff’s sound is a fusion of hip-hop, jazz, and soul. In 2013 he began working with faster beats per minute and the house and disco sounds that came out of Chicago in the late 70’s and early 80’s. He makes great music of all varieties, and it is impossible to put it into one category.

If you are looking for adult contemporary or alternative hip-hop music which is all honest expression. Melodic, street-wise and socially-conscious…luxury sports sedan music which entertains and heals the soul…. you’ll find something here that you will love.

Music should be like life – different moods and vibes. When I make music I want to soothe the souls of the people and open some minds to the truth.

What is Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop and Soul Music?

Adult contemporary music is music for a mature audience. This does not mean an old audience, but an audience that appreciates socially conscious and thoughtful music and lyrics. This is music that moves you, entertains you, heals you, and uplifts you. It also has a dynamic message. Adult contemporary music draws you in, engages you and gives you something to think over as you listen. Because it engages both your mind and your soul, it is memorable and is a music that you can connect to.

 

What is Alternative Hip-Hop?

Alternative hip hop (also known as alternative rap) is a subgenre of hip hop music that encompasses the wide range of styles of hip hop that have not become identified as mainstream. AllMusic defines it as follows: “Alternative rap refers to hip hop groups that tend not to conform to any of the traditional forms of rap, such as gangsta, bass, hardcore, pop, and party rap. Instead, they blur genres – drawing equally from funk and rock, as well as jazz, soul, reggae, country, electronic, and even folk.”

 

What is Socially Conscious Hip-Hop

Socially conscious hip-hop describes music and artists whose lyrics address social issues and situations. It also captures culture, sometimes religion, and every day lift. It uplifts. It does not demean, it does not hate women, it does not kill, it does not think its a gangster, and it does not tear people down. Its often controversial and it struggles to get main-stream air play. But that is the beauty of hip-hop, it is not main-stream and it should never be. Keeping it popular, viable, yet underground is what will keep hip-hip alive.

Lyrics
Drama No More
Now do you recall how all this got started?
I was hanging with my crew so much love in our hearts
You was watching me as I came in the room
I was playing some pool and your mind got consumed
So you told yourself “I gots to have that”
then you told your homegirl “I’ll be right back”
And then you walked up to me in the crowd and asked me my name
If I’d a known then what I know now I wouldn’t a went down the same

I gotta let it go baby
Let it go baby
I just can’t take the drama no more
Drama no more
See I gotta let it go baby
Let it go baby
I just can’t take the drama no no no no no no no more

Now see this love we shared compares to nothing in this world baby
Now I wrote this song wishing you would be my lady
How could something so right be so wrong
I guess its just another sad love song

I told you baby I wanted you to have my children
you said when you was ready you would surely be willing
Now all the stuff you told me, you really didn’t mean it
I really should have seen it

I gotta let it go baby
Let it go baby
I just can’t take the drama no more
Drama no more
Oh I gotta let it go baby
Let it go baby
I can’t take the drama no more
Drama no more

Now after all is said and done
I guess you just ain’t the one
So enjoy your life baby
Go on and have your fun
See I cared for you girl
That there is no doubt
True love is all I was talkin about

Let it go baby
I just can’t take the drama no more
Drama no more
Oh I gotta let it go darlin
Let it go baby
I just can’t take the drama no more
Drama no more
Oh I gotta let it go baby
Let it go baby
I just can’t take the drama no more
I gotta let it go now
I got to let it go baby
I gotta let it go now
I got to let it go baby
I gotta let it go now

 


Lyrics
My Lady

Now I, I never knew someone quite like you baby
Now I, I admire all the things you do
Let me ask you one thing, girl
Can I just say a little something
Baby, you’re driving me crazy, would you be my lady
Now you, you’re one of a kind, in my mind darlin
Aw, I said you you you you you you you’re blowin my mind
Your lovin feels so fine
Let me tell you one thing
Can I tell you this one thing
Baby, you’re drivin me crazy, would you be my lady
I said baby, you’re drivin me crazy, would you be my lady
When we make love its so wonderful
I mean it feels so beautiful
I feel your soul all around me baby
Well, you’re so warm inside
Just like the sunshine that cleared up my cloudy life
I think you’re supposed be th one to be my wife
It feels so good when you say my name
Would you be my lady
My lady lady lady lady
My lady lady lady lady
My lady lady lady lady lady
