Rapper and singer, Theophilus London, first rose to fame with his debut EP Lovers Holiday, released in February 2011. His full-length debut album, Timez Are Weird These Days, was released later that year in July 2011 with much success and praise. Fans would wait another three years before London’s second studio album release titled, VIBES — an album dedicated to his aunt who had recently passed. Drawing inspiration from a range of artists and genres, such as soul-pop and post-punk, to electro and contemporary R&B, London’s main influences include Michael Jackson, Prince, and The Smiths. Creative and original in his music as he is with his style, London favors The LEMTOSH.
