Tributes rolling in as UK rapper, Jevon Ellis Official, passed away at age 33

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Tributes rolling in as UK rapper, Jevon Ellis Official, passed away at age 33 years old (born in 1991 in Coventry). 

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.”

The news was reported by Complex, with multiple sources confirming that he has passed away. No cause of death has yet been confirmed.

Jevon Daniel Ellis was raised in West London, but relocated to Coventry in his teens, where, as he explained to NME in 2018, he began to make music.

He was perhaps best known for producing several of the songs on XL Recordings’ ‘New Gen’ compilation in 2017, which showcased a number of London’s most exciting rap, R&B and spoken word talent at the time, including Kojey Radical, Avelino and Tiggs da Author.
