NEW ALBUM: Smoove'L - Ice Cups and Shootouts
Brooklyn rapper, Smoove’L’s debut studio album, Ice Cups and Shootouts via Run Music/Interscope Records is out now. Prior to the release he shared two singles 'Period,' an upbeat, high energy drill track and “4 The Fashion,” a song dedicated to his drip over a slowed down hypnotic beat – together they set the tone for the versatility of the seventeen-track project. He kicks off Ice Cups with 'Bag Talk,' which features his notable hums; on “Bae Boo Stinks” and “Get Married,” where he raps over gorgeous guitar strums, he continues to showcase his strength in adapting to different flows. The album also includes his breakout hit, “Apollos,” which was recently added to the New York Times’ “Best Songs of 2020” playlist and now has over 13 million views on YouTube. Rising rapper, Toosii also makes an appearance on 'Interact.'
As New York rap goes, Brooklyn is the epicenter for many of the legends that get birthed into the game. With 2020 proving to be a true shift in hip-hop from all levels, many new emcees from the area will soon battle it out to take claim for that coveted "King Of New York" title. For Smoove'L, his debut album Ice Cups And Shootouts might just be the one to get him to the top.
