Flavor: New Era of Hip Hop referred to as having a swagger like Kanye West however with an individuality of his own.
Cosign: "With Hip Hop at an all time low with aspiring Talent I feel like this is what we need right now as far as Music. He's got it... He's got the charm, the looks, and a Swag to bring Hip Hop back to its original formation... ALIVE" - Jadie Yamil
Sitting in the Mocha Lounge on 119th Street & Fredrick Douglas Blvd in Harlem NY, not too far from where SM grew up at on 115th & Lenox the aura of Hip Hip fills the room as an Eclectic vibe plays the lounge floor. Sitting in the cut, this young clean cut man strolls in; such an innocent smile... Extends his hand and introduces himself, "Smalls, but you can call me SM." Instantly, you can see and feel that there was something special about him. "I had to actually convince him to get back in the studio.. S was really ready to let it go,” says Producer and long time friend, Francisco "Pesos" Lopez; Smiles all around the table. And so a Bio was formed that night...
SM has to be focused in today's industry. With the chart toppers such as Kanye, Jay-Z, and Young Jeezy, he can’t stray from his true form - Individuality. Once a member of a rap group at only 11 years old, it didn't take long for him to realize that he had the raw talent. As a student at Morehouse College, it was there that he a built the work ethic he would need to succeed. It was there that a dream was formed...
Leaving Atlanta and returning back to New York he found himself back where it all began. Given the opportunity, he was able to work with artist such as Ron Browz, Horace Brown, Lord Finese and Sticky Fingaz. During his time out in LA with Sticky, he became acquainted with Omar Epps, who he worked with closely as well.
Surrounding himself with a crew of talent (Pesos, Radinero and D-Ski) allowed the creation of His World Music. Working diligently within the past year SM will be looking forward to releasing his EP in the fall of 09. The anticipation of this album will prove to be exactly what Hip Hop needs right now. The Album will be an Eye opener to say the least, not only representing New York talent but also the Best of Hip Hop All together.
