Bio

D.A. SMART - The Black Terror

A Chicago land rap artist has the proclamation of being intuitively smart, hardcore and street wise. The artist has been on the rap scene since 1982 - verbally battling on street corners, in city projects, and widely throughout the world of hip-hop.

Smart was born September 23 --- in Roseland Community h
Hospital (Chicago’s wild - wild hundreds)...a birthplace that was a sure sign of his inherent and unbridled spirit. Raised with three siblings, in a single family housing complex by his mother Mable Jean, Smart undoubtedly developed his style of rap, street mentality, and street justice from both street and home life in and around the Robert Taylor homes or Vulture City.
The street or more specifically the realities of life has always been an inspiration. D.A. acknowledges he is a rebel - always rebelling, he says, against the "injustice of the system" - but learned to channel the energy creatively by writing, arranging and composing lyrical verbiage to send a message of hard-core truth, encouragement, direction and inspiration.

D.A. most recently performed at Minister Louis Farrakhan’s "2004" Atonement Day Celebration" appearing with artist such as Syleena Johnson, Stephanie Mills, Public Enemy, Ja Rule, and Bizzy Bone.

He brought everyone in attendance to their feet while bringing forth a strong message of cultural solidarity and awareness; ending his performance - powerfully - with "Black People Ain't Prejudice We Just Mad".
