Rising artist, Jefe312 released his new project “J.E.F.E” which is his name in an acromyn that stands for “Just Enough For Everybody.” Jefe says he dropped a project last year called “Silver” that received a lot of criticism.
“It was a lot of suggestions like “you should have had more of these songs…” This project was really to exhibit my versatility….”
Jefe312 explains that he wanted to tap into all aspects of his creativity with this project. The first single “Food Trail” reflects Jefe’s journey through life as he raps about leaving his food trail in every step.
Rather its Jefe rapping about his journey to him venting in “5pm in Miami” , the J.E.F.E album consciously reveals Jefe’s story and his experiences growing up in Chicago.
Growing up on the Northside of Chicago, Jefe describes himself as a true “Chicagoan” as his hometown city inspired his name. He uses Chicago’s popular area code “312” to prove his loyalty to the city.
Jefe312 also discussed starting Section312 in college. Section312 is a support team that consists of creative members from photographers to graphic designers. He says that he’s always been inspired by groups like “Young Money, Taylor Gang, MMG, etc.”
Jefe312 currently has 3 videos from the J.E.F.E project. The full album is available on all streaming platforms.
