Jevon, the beloved British rapper and producer, has passed away. News of his death has been confirmed by friends and family. At the time of publishing, the cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Raised in West London before relocating to Coventry in his teens, Jevon’s connections to both areas ran deep. His work as a rapper and producer changed the face of the UK sound.

As a producer, he had a hand in some of the finest releases of the past decade, contributing to albums by the likes of Nines, Pa Salieu, and M1llionz. He was also one of the producers behind XL’s 2017 New Gen compilation. Drawing heavy influence from his Brazilian heritage, Jevon poured those sounds and rhythms into his work, leaving an indelible mark on everything he touched.

After his grandfather’s passing, Jevon inherited his record collection, much of it sourced from Brazil. Those records lit a fire in him and he spent three months in São Paulo and Rio De Janeiro recording his debut album, Fell In Love In Brasil.

Speaking to the NME at the time of the album’s release, he explained: “My grandad was Brazilian and he passed away about three years ago now. In his will, he left me his record collection, and it was all Brazilian artists. I had what I thought was the EP, but when I heard the Brazilian sounds, I just started making some Brazilian stuff. I was like, ‘This needs to be the album’. It was a blessing.”

Since the news broke, Twitter has been filled with friends, family and collaborators sharing tributes to the late artist.

RIP jevon prayers to you and yours ❤️

Rest in peace Jevon. A real one of a kind artist with unmatched aspirations. One of the nicest artists to be around out too.

This is a modern UK classic. Play it loud while the sun shines today.
