Conversations About Her

Smino – BLKJUPTR | New Music



If Desiigner’s uber-smash “Panda” was hinting at a comeback to the Gangsta-HipHop of the early 00’s, Smino is going in the opposite direction. The St. Louis-born young rapper just released his debut EP blkjuptralong with his first video for its title track.


From the first note, the talent of this kid is crystal-clear: he wisely mixes heavily chopped’n’screwed instrumentals over razor blade verses à-la Kendrick Lamar and a very soulful chorus, which vaguely reminds of Frank Ocean’s best efforts.


Watch “BLKJUPTR” spooky clip – directed by Jacob Chavez – below and stream his debut on Apple Music.

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
