Yah Supreme (Yahya Jeffries-El) was born at Harlem Hospital and grew up in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn.
After attending Manhattan’s Hunter College High School, he studied performing arts at Washington University in St. Louis as a Harold A. Ramis Scholar.
Yah’s “atmospheric hip-hop” quintet–Brohemian–is a 21st century mash-up of Gil Scott Heron, Marvin Gaye and Guru fused together over funky rhythms. Yah Supreme (lead vocals/production) and Tommaso Cappellato (drums/production) formed the project in Brooklyn in 2004 and independently released their debut album “Post Modern Garden“ in 2006. Prior to forming Brohemian, Yah Supreme has released 5 12-inch singles on vinyl, an EP and a compilation album on compact disc through the labels Son Doo Recordings (Brooklyn) and Underground Academy (Paris). He has also appeared on albums as a guest with Featherstar, Tiffany Pfeiffer and the Discarnate Band, Jimmy Lopez, Spier 1200, DJ Cam and Fare Soldi.
Yah Supreme’s sophomore album “Naked City“ was released on November 11, 2014. The Brooklyn native waxes esoteric (and alternately—erotic) through rhythm and poetry. Each tune is a frisky synergy of vintage and virtual instrumentation tethered to themes of voyeurism/exhibitionism and social connection.
