Ahead of the March 14 release of his debut album, blkswn, Smino shares “Father Son Holy Smoke.” Produced by THEMpeople, the impeccable flow and word play is just the tip of the iceberg as the message is equally admirable in its focus on various social issues. The vibe is something to mention, too. Smino’s music feels like the comfort of home, and undeniable to many, home is where the heart is. The St. Louis rapper undoubtedly speaks from the heart, which rings true on both his latest and upcoming project.
“March 14 is my hometown holiday,” Smino says of his album release date, which also reflects his hometown’s 314 area code. “St. Louis sounds like midnight at the River Front at all times to me. It’s slowed down but turned up. People here speak from the heart, even our trap rappers speak that blues. I feel like there’s a lot of great sh*t that’s just organically great. We didn’t have a lot, so people get inspiration from their household.” Gear up for blkswn‘s release with “Father Son Holy Smoke” below. The album is available for pre-order here.
