Sierra Neoné is what it sounds like when a spirit takes flight w/o ever looking down or looking back. Made after Jimetta drove an hour out to Upland, California to reconnect and eat some of Def's world famous vegan taco's the song was recorded in Def's living room.Both children of Leimert Park are channeling the data running through their bones into a song about spirituality, resilience, resistance and home internally.

There's so much power in naming, much like Outkast's Stankonia (where all the funky thangs are from) Sierra Neoné about where all the brightest ideas and feelings are from. We seldom see the process and sacrifices made in order for a diamond from Sierra Leone to exist. We just love the results. Sierra Neoné is the spiritual mindful mining needed to create hope. Sierra Neoné is about creating a safe space within yourself by being as brown as you wanna be, free as you wanna be.

Sierra Neone is a place we all go within ourselves to recharge, re self. It’s thee outternet you log into when tapping into yourself tapping out of this world. It’s those moment we tune into ourselves for a moment there is peace. There is a place we belong.
We us somewhere.


this is church w/o religion
flirting w/ this feeling
worth in my persistence
this is not earn or our decision
This is pure destiny
new testament
old recipes

Jehovah holding down drums
Allah grooving on keys
Elohim is on bass
we all groove to one beat
super infinite on those instruments, all live inside me
keeping time outside of time
We keeping up at god speed yea!
we mixed it down lost thee message
everybody got an edit
everybody wants a credit
everybody just a remix
everybody got thee best one, everybody gotta hear it
everybody gotta love it,
everybody got thee truth, but some like it autotuned

Jimetta Rose [Hook]:
I know there’s gotta be a way for me to make it over there
If only I can fly
Maybe I can fly
Spread my wings
Be who I wanna be
Free as I wanna be
Brown as I wanna be

I’ve seen Strangers Things
I’m so 11
never stressing
broke thee record for being broke
thats a broken record I don’t hear no more

fear gone he ain’t here no more
so gone I aint here no mo
fear calling i hit ignore
unsubscribe unsubscribe

new vibe who dis?
I’m a better person when my phone dead
w/o a purpose we all dead
everybody is so dead, you’re so funny I’m so dead
oh this party is so dead
look at them they so dead
look at them

finding signal when my soul drifts
been whole since I been homeless
spent nights explaining 2 grown friends and they judgements
what living out your dreams is
when your pockets down to three cents
how you got luggage but don’t trip?
You don’t trip!

Favorite substance called abundance
I aint running from it
I am running to it
got the data in me and i never lose it
wipe your trauma on me
I would never never do it
we be glowing through it
my catalogues
got catalogues
I slay like i'm santa clause
thats arrogance in thee air again


losing count of what i'm counting on
you be on that yada yada
your monologue that hour long
that blah blah
that shit made me hell yawn

Sierra Neoné
It’s never too far
It’s never too
Sierra Neoné
It’s never too far
