Chris Smith, Jr. - Griffey

  • Artist: Smino
  • Track: Griffey
  • Producer: Monte Booker
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

Next to Martin Luther King, Ken Griffey may well be the most famous and accomplished “Jr.” in the history of American culture. Granted, I only thought about that statement for about thirty seconds before writing it, so I'm probably forgetting someone. Regardless, the legendary center fielder is a natural role model for St. Louis representative Chris Smith, Jr., who turns the former's surname into the title of his latest single and debut Booth feature. Here, a peppy, left-of-center Latin-jazz groove by Monte Booker sets the stage for double-time bars chronicling the unsigned buzzmaker's hustle. This energizing jam is just a loosie, but we'll keep you posted as we learn more about Chris Smith's 2015 plans.
