My Tyte Jeff

Tyte Jeff
I’m sharing a post today that has nothing to do with my home, decor or design. It has nothing to do with why you guys typically visit me – and I hope that’s cool. Today I just had to take a sec to say how proud I am of my guy, Jeff (aka Tyte Jeff, aka Tyte Waff, aka Nedrick Lamar, Top Rapper). Today he is releasing his new EP TYTE JEFF.

Making music has always been apart of Jeff’s life. We met at the battle of the bands way back in 1998, my band Hardnox was battling his band The Killer Bees, it was true love, you guys. Ever since then I have always known Jeff to have a guitar in his hands (sometimes that gets annoying) and a fire in his heart.

When we had those (GD (J/K)) kids a lot of our personal ambitions were put on hold to make sure that those people got fed, were put to bed at a decent hour, and were well loved. Jeff has spent years working on this EP, putting bits and pieces of it together when time allowed (aka when those kids didn’t need something). Feeling an urgency to finally get this thing wrapped up, he has spent the last 18 months recording the jamz, fine tuning the mix, making a band and playing shows. Today is the day that he is finally releasing this most amazing six song EP.

I think the music is rocking, man, and the lyrics are just so good. As his wife, I am so proud of what he has made, and beyond happy that my partner has such great ambition in life. You should take a sec to listen to these tytest of jamz. You can stream TYTE JEFF below via sound cloud, listen to it on spotify or download it at the itunes store.


If you are local, perhaps the TYTEST way to hear the jams is to come out to the Turf Club, this Saturday April 19th in St. Paul, MN for the release show! Tyte Jeff will also be playing with the incredible Valet and The Ronnie Buxtons (ex Lifter Puller). Doors at 8PM. Hope to see some of you there!

    Having gone to college in Cincinnati (and then leaving a few years later), I especially loved the Cinci shuffle! Summed up that city perfectly. (And even my husband who was born and raised there will agree!) Too funny. Thank you for sharing this!

      Yo, Kim! Ha, Jeff will be glad to hear this, I will make sure to share it with him. BTW I’m loving following your home renovations!

    I may be practically tone deaf but I still have taste lol. Love it!

    • Scoops April 16, 2014

      I hope that means you’re into it ;)

  • Amanda @ willful/joyful April 15, 2014

    Yay for good music! Yay for supportive spouses! Yay for following passions despite GD kids! I totally approve.

    • Scoops April 16, 2014

      Yes, we are so similar minded ;)

    • Scoops April 16, 2014

      I love all the Cinci comments. I’ll let Jeff know that you were into it, thanks for listening!

    This is really, really good, thanks for sharing! Your post brought back memories of being 16 and going to Battle of the Bands here in Spokane, WA. Jeff’s music is reminiscent of the stuff I used to listen to when I was younger, but so much more polished and thoughtful. Great job, mister!
    Love your blog, I’ve been following for about a month now. When I saw your kitchen remodel, I immediately remembered seeing it on Design Sponge. :)

      Hey, Kim! I hope that what you are saying is that Jeff’s music could possibly, maybe, kinda sorta remind you of grunge, right? I know that’s not what you are saying, but I would like it very much if it were. Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you around more in the future!

    1) I love the Ikea light fixture in the sunroom and just bought one myself for my basement remodel. Great minds…

    2) I kept seeing ads for the Tyte Jeff show at First Ave this week and wondered what that was all about. What a fun way to learn about it! Hope to see you at the show!

    • Scoops April 16, 2014

      Hey Leslie! For some reason that fixture looked huge to me in the store, and then once I got it up it was just the right scale. I’m sure you will love it in your basement, and also, totally jealous of your basement remodel.
      Yes, hope to see you at the show!
