Brooklyn born emcee SMTH is trying to give you something you can feel. Using life itself as his blank canvas, SMTH (born Brandon Smith) turns his brand of street literature into a collage of portraits, cleverly capturing the stark realities of the environment that raised him. By the age of 12 he began a budding career in rap where he expressed himself from the heart. His neighborhood, dominated by crime and the activities from both drug dealers and users developed the type of social commentary and perspective that skillfully details the evolution of a mindset from the streets. As the years passed, SMTH’s skill and technique led him to work with established acts such as DJ Spinna as well as find a home for his music at the Brooklyn based Freedom Musiq. In 2008 he was able to secure a highly coveted nomination for Street Album Of The Year at the Justo Mixtape Awards. The experience and exposure created a buzz in the hip-hop community, which complemented the launch of his forthcoming mixtape, THE SMTH PROJECT. With a confidence that spans well past the community that raised and inspired him, be prepared for a refreshing air in the sub-genre of New York rap.
