Originally from St. Louis, rapper Smino found his footing after moving to Chicago and linking up with the members of the Zero Fatigue collective. With help from producer Monte Booker, whose woozy, aqueous beats bridge the Dungeon Family '90s and the present trap era, Smino has found a sound that affords him space for playful flows with a trace of Andre 3000 trickiness. It's a low-key style overall, but Smino's consistent rise has extended with his new, sophomore album, Noir. With TOBi and Bari. 18+.
