Hempstead Long Island Nyc artist and producer Smoovthdrops off his dope new album entitled “Young Smoovth“.
For those unfamiliar with Smoovth, he has almost 15 years under his belt making music, starting out with his day one Hus Kingpin. The duo would go on to travel the world and reach out to various producers, that would later spawn the group “Tha Connection“.
“We built our name on myspace. Smoovth tells Grown Up Rap “We went country to country and tried to conquer everywhere by getting producers from different places around the world to mess with us. Before you knew it, word of mouth got us buzzing, and so Tha Connection was formed. It was a good time, but also a gritty time. Hanging with a bunch of dudes, hustling, beef with rival crews. We were still in the streets doing street things…and so that hunger and street vibe can be heard in the earlier music“.
Fast forward some years and Smoovth has become an accomplished artist worldwide working with labels like Tuff Kong and FXCK RXP. The rappers catalog is immense and he’s still in the booth creating more content like his forthcoming Hus Kingpin collab, Like Purple for Chocolate.
The featured project today is a compilation of unreleased and older released songs from his early work, the 14 track album features production by 12 Bit, Doktor Rheal, EvB, Sci Fi Stu and more, with one guest appearance by frequent collaborator Hus Kingpin.
