No rapper approaches and uses the English language quite like Smino. He will release his debut album blkswn on Tuesday, March 14th, an off-cycle datea that references the 314 area code of his hometown, St. Louis. “People here speak from the heart, even our trap rappers speak that blues,” Smino explains. His engineer Elton “L10mixedit” Chueng has said that “the album sounds like ’01, but 3001 though.”

This morning, Smino shared “Father Son Holy Smoke,” a song produced By THEMpeople & Phoelix that evokes the murky, low-frequency peace of a late-night smoke session. Give it a listen and pre-order blkswn on iTunes.
