There’s artists that rap and there’s artists that make music with their voice.

STL representative Smino does both in an innovative fashion in his debut album “blkswn”. Watching the growth of the 314 native since the release of his single “Smellin Like A Re-Up” two years ago as Chris Smith Jr, until now has been something special, and “blkswn” is nothing short of just that as well.

Fifteen tracks long, Smino’s debut album possesses a multitude of flows, angelic harmonies, and rhyme schemes that will change your perspective of what’s capable when rapping. Paired with the talents of the likes of Monte Booker, Phoelix and THEMpeople, Smino uses his voice to perfectly portray his soulful personality over vibrant production.
