 Connecting with the term Vagabond”, which is French in origin and defined as “relating to, or characteristic of a wanderer”, the Haitian-American rapper goes back to lyrical roots and noteworthy subjects. “This is the only project on which I was free to do everything alone and creatively explore my thoughts,” says Jeff. “I found myself artistically and I felt good about everything. I think that translates more in my music with the response it’s been getting.”
 
On the project’s 10 tracks, Jeff broaches topics ranging from violence in America on the single “The People” featuring sound bites of Black Panther Huey P. Newton and his adoration for Haiti on the moving Erykah Badu-sampled “In Love With You” to embracing being a young Black man on the catchy “I’m a Ni#@!!”. 

Opting for minimal features, “Jetset Vagabond” boasts just two: Paul Revear who has worked with Lil Wayne, The Game and Wale and Joe Cash Mahall. Meanwhile, producers include: Elite Teamz, Funkybeats, Jae Monee, Sonny Carson (Red Café, Fabolous, Joel Ortiz), Picasso The Don (Smoke DZA, Mickey Factz, AZ), and K.E. (Future, Kirko Bangz, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Juelz Santana)." Just checkout the visuals below it goes H.A.M.!!
