Hailing from St. Louis, Smino continues to please with his latest project, blkjuptr. Smino wastes no time in letting you feel his presence, balancing smooth vibes and surges of in-your-face energy as he hovers between heartfelt croons and piercing verses. Executively produced by Chicago’s Soulection member Monte Booker, the combined duo successfully crafts a progressive project that culminates into a cohesive, futuristic sound. The project also taps Jay 2, Julian Bell, Jean Deaux and more for additional vocals.
If you’re living in the St. Louis area, make sure you catch Smino in concert alongside Monte Booker, Jean Deaux, Bryant Stewart, and Jay 2 at the Demo on January 22nd. As the follow-up to his headliner in Chicago last month, this line-up filled with Midwest sonic powerhouses will undoubtedly deliver another show to remember. Catch tickets to his upcoming show here.
