Quickly rising rapper Smino has delivered his smooth debut 18-track album blkswn. The St. Louis to Chicago artist has a unique sound blending a soulful style of singing and rapping that is in a similar vein as Chance The Rapper and Anderson .Paak, but keeping his sound entirely his own. He decided to drop the album today on 3/14 to represent his St. Louis area code of 314.
We were recently blown away by standout album single "Anita" and are pleased by the full project. Smino was born into a musical family and this shows in his music based around a live, funky and soulful sound. His singing is incredibly catchy and melodic while his raps are fluid and technical making for a hybrid sound that works so well.
The entire project is filled with soul. Everything from the instrumentals to his delivery is soulful as he skips along to the beat singing a catchy melody before bursting into a furious verse showcasing his diverse skill set. He brings on minimal features from vocalists as well as production by Soulection’s Monte Booker, his past collaborator THEMpeople and more. Stream the full album below and enjoy!
