Jerome Rex is a hip hop soul singer/songwriter and an unashamed Capetonian. His influences range from KRS-One to Dwele, and from acapella choirs to the Motown legends of the 60s.
As part of the hip hop duo Flow Motion, he recorded his first full-length album which yielded a No.1 single on the Good Hope FM Radio Hip Hop Charts. This was followed by 2 solo projects – a mixtape and his debut studio album, Jerome & Geselskap. The single “Doenit Man” featuring hip hop veteran Siepsokkie spent 18 weeks on the Good Hope FM Hip Hop charts, also peaking at No.1.
His work has been profiled on several commercial and community radio stations, online publications like Word Up Ezine and IAM Magazine, print media with readership as large as The Cape Times, as well as the Kollig TV show on Kyknet.
Jerome also co-hosts Expression Session Kuils River, a monthly platform for creatives to share their talents and connect socially.
Jerome & Geselskap is the breakout studio album from hip hop soul singer Jerome Rex.
Work on the project started late last year, and was aided in part by contributions from a crowdfunding campaign similar to the Kickstarter model (www.kickstarter.com) that is so popular overseas. People who believed in the music could help make this dream a reality by pre-purchasing their CDs months before the product was ready. Their contributions went towards post-production and manufacturing costs.
The album explores the concept of how people are defined by their friendships and the company they keep. Musically, the sound is a combination of 90s-era boom bap rap, neo-soul and RnB, and boasts a wealth of featured talent. Guest artists vary in style from “rymkletsers” (HemelBesem) to soul crooners (Ms Lenda), and from poets (IO the Poet) to the folk/rock/fusion sounds of Frazer Barry (of Tribal Echo fame). Not to mention the turntablism skills of DJ HearinAid!
