When your crew is #TheWinners, it’s only natural for expectations and pressure to be naturally elevated. Not only do fans expect you to constantly win, but your own crew expects the same. Hempstead’s SmooVth is taking it all in stride as he steadily drops dope track after dope track, carving his place in the game over rugged beats with the respect of his contemporaries and vets like Roc Marciano and Agallah. From linking with fellow Winner Hus Kingpin and Marvelous Mag to blindly emailing DJ Premier only to hear Preem rock his song on his radio show, Live from HeadQcourterz, SmooVth is earning the respect of old heads and young cats alike. Taking a break from prepping one of his many projects, SmooVth sits down with ProfileWild to talk about his rise as an MC, how #TheWinners came about, what he has to do to be successful, and why Nas’s It Was Written was more influential to him than Illmatic. SmooVth also survives a round with the random question generator and drops some acapella bars to close it out.
