Biography

Supreme was raised in Bristol ; a city in the southwest of England (U.K.) approximately 110 miles west of the capital London. He was raised alongside his five siblings by his mother in their single parent household.

Growing up on mainly reggae, his mum’s favourite, it took a next door neighbor to give Preme his first full length album dosage of hip hop, and from there he was hooked.

He recorded his first track at the age of 16 as a guest going by the moniker Kid Supreme, alongside older seasoned spitters and still managed to hold his own. The said track went on broadcast for Dj Tim Westwood’s rap show, solidifying a mic slot at forthcoming Westwood events in the Bristol area .

Growing up in the rough areas of St. Paul’s and later Easton Supreme was sidetracked from a dedicated music career by just (as he Calls it) “tryna live”, but eventually came to his senses and committed himself once again to music, he went on to form the rap crew known as “BS5” synonymous with the postcode for the area. BS5 garnered a fair bit of nationwide recognition via videos like Dark N Cold, with hard raps and interviews (before the Channel U days) as well as Supreme’s free spirited approach of not just staying on the endz but travelling to other cities to make BS5’s presence known. The group went on to release a mixtape quite a new thing to the U.K scene at that time, the disc found its way to many cities due to Preme’s ; full tank and a car ethic, and sold moderately.

A short while after the release of the CD Supreme found himself in prison for a third time fighting a charge of a serious nature. After a nearly 2 year incarceration (with only his faith to rely on) on remand and an 18 week trial Supreme was vindicated and released back into society. By this time things fizzled musically concerning the group he assembled but this never deterred him he got straight back on the music grind convinced there being a spot of U.K. hip hop history for him to fill.

Since his release supreme has been honing his mic skills with a soloist state of mind due to the fact he’s always played a somewhat managerial, promotional, marketing, socialite, part time rapper role and still with the same intention he wrote his first 16 bars with “To rep my endz to the fullest, where it hasn’t been before”.

So with that said and still with his faith leading the way godwilling the rest is history.

Lyrics

Back Where I Started/Money

Written By: Supreme

Back Where I Started/Money Money Lyrics

Chorus:

Blood I’m back where I started the roads ain’t a game
Not guilty I’m here again
With the class moving blood and fed ducking
Youts on road with the ting like its nothing
I’m back where I started and this times for keeps
Low the mic tryna tell you creeps
Been to hell and back so now I burn up tracks
I’m a blow gran mummy you can count on that

Verse 1:

Blood I’m back where I started surprised that I lasted
Sellasie I gave me a bly thought he’d chance it
Most brothers my age are past it I’m in my prime
And still a brother is old school was on the line
Being trapped wasn’t funny but now a brother’s back
Cause I left something business and money
What else? A few chicks and a few
With my my name all in they’re mouth like a toothpick
And when they’re crew thick on sight they screw whips
And when they’re on they’re J’s mosey on and don’t do nish
Now here come the frenemies I ain’t got the energy
You wanna be a friend of me or wanna see the end of me
I was gone you had the roads I let you swim
But you brothers impotent you just can’t get it in
God thanks for prayers trust me I didn’t lie
I know back at the well just one more time

Chorus:

Back where I started the roads ain’t a game
Not guilty I’m here again
With the class moving blood and fed ducking
Youts on road with the ting like its nothing
I’m back where I started and this times for keeps
Louw the mic tryna tell you creeps
Been to hell and back so now I burn up tracks
I’m a blow gran mummy you can count on that

Verse 2:

And count on this preme is a veteran
Real rappers on road ain’t many better than
Gold teeth dragon tatted the flame spitter
Who pioneered the southwest yes I’m that
Be aware of those tryna be front man
Loose ends on they’re bars wanna be my stuntman
Don’t watch before but watch what’s to come
Those are my sons and I am the one
In with the pen the prowess begun
With real intellect and out with the lung
Trust me so much intel in my brain
Only tetsuo can feel my pain
Probably quit spitting my life you went through it
My loved ones wondering why I still do it
For the rappers on lock for the rappers that’s six feet
The ones who didn’t blow and I do it for chingy

Chorus:

But I’m back where I started the roads ain’t a game
Not guilty I’m here again
With the class moving blood and fed ducking
Youts on road with the ting like its nothing
I’m back where I started and this times for keeps
Louw the mic tryna tell you creeps
Been to hell and back so now I burn up tracks
I’m a blow gran mummy you can count on that

Money

Verse 1:

They’re once was a sister growing up in the capital
Felt displaced hue mixed race
Whites thought she was too dark
Blacks thought she was too light
So she socially struggled fighting the prejudice
Parallel she was a poor girl
Was drawn to her black side fused with the panthers
Studied on her melanin better than she ever been
Hairstyle was Angela Davies militant not in the navy
She fought rallied chipped at the system
Chipped at the man chipped at the powers that be cause

Chorus:

Money money sunny sunny
Money money sunny sunny
