The Indie Life: Hate, Love & Money

If you aspire to be a clued-in hip-hop head, you’d better have at least one of your eyes (and, if possible, an ear or two) glued to SmCity; with the kind of moves the Washington, D.C. representer’s been making lately, those who fail to take notice are liable to be left in the dust. On the latest release off his Booth-sponsored street album, Sm attempts to rouse those who’ve been sleeping on his hustle, commanding all who will listen to “Watch Me.” With Best Kept Secret‘s cowbell-laced percussion rhythm and simmering organ chords as his canvas, the artist ponders why some in the game are so slow to take notice—could it be his controversial political opinions (“[They’re] like ‘He’s a terrorist, jail him!’ ‘cause I speak on how America’s failing.”)? Simple professional jealousy (“They’re scared ‘cause I’m appealing to a larger audience.”)? Whatever the motive, this jam should ensure that Booth readers don’t make the same mistake. Tied together with DMV singer Trey Dupree‘s soulful yet swag-drenched hook vocals, this joint is just one of many dope originals to be found on SMCity’s The Indie Life: Hate, Love & Money LP, set to hit our mixtape page Jan. 12, 2012.
