If there’s one region on the map that is extremely slept on when it comes to delivering fresh and groundbreaking artists, it would be the DMV. As much as we like to credit Atlanta with running the game as of late, every once in awhile the DMV blossoms in a new wave of creatives waiting to take over the rap game in every way they can. In an era where a majority of the music sounds a certain way, it can be very refreshing to hear something that you can simply just put on and catch a vibe too. That being said, DMV artist dopeSMOOTHIESis making his Lyrical Lemonade debut with his newest single and visual for his track titled “S’mores” featuring SMII Much.
Produced by Gekkoh, this track is the embodiment of what feel-good music sounds like. Everything from the classic sample of Cal Tjader’s “Invitation” in the rear of the track, to the slowed breakbeat in the front– dopeSMOOTHIES glides over the track with ease while maintaining his laid-back flow–creating a pocket of his own. The visuals are edited amazingly which is always adds to the overall aesthetic of the track as well. The video shows dope and SMII galavanting through an undisclosed forest wearing army fatigue jackets as they roam around getting their bars off and telling it like it is. dopeSMOOTHIES is gearing up for the release of his project titled CAMPFIRESTORIES in February, and I am sure there will be more vibrations like this to enjoy all throughout the project.
“With ‘S’mores’, I wanted to create a world of my own. The video showcases that world.”
