Smoke DZA's "Off The Top" Freestyle
Cinematic Music Group and Top Shelf Premium have decided to join forces for a brand new freestyle series called “Off Top”. It’s first rapper to take the challenge? Smoke DZA.

Rockin’ a Bo Jackson White Sox jersey, Smoke DZA did exactly what he was ask to do and that’s deliver BARS. Check it out above.

Smoke DZA Feat. Cam'ron
Smoke DZA's last album, Dream.ZONE.Achieve, was released over a year ago, and it seemed we'd never get an official video for his Harlem lineage collab, "Ghost Of Dipset". The Cam'ron-assisted collab is built off aof a beat that fittingly sounds like a Heatmakerz instrumental calling from the afterlife. DZA's laid-back swagger works is highly compatible with Cam's lazy tongue twisters, and by recruiting the Diplomats leader for the video, DZA gets his KIlla Season-proven acting chops, as well as a role for Dame Dash as well.

It shares footages of his performances for the European faithful, highlighted by an appearance from renowned hip-hop dancers Les Twins. It also offers insight into Smoke's tooth-brushing technique (vigorous). But mostly it shows why the call him the Kush God.
