Smilez is about to be a problem in the rap game.
Of course, being friends with Tekashi 6ix9ine speaks volumes in itself — but now he’s debuting his own artistry.
Boasting 181K followers on Instagram alone, the Los Angeles rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer releases his first official single titled “Head Shoulders.”
The slick record is an instant banger, reminding listeners of their childhood with the phrase “head, shoulders, knees, toes!”
Draped from head to toe in yellow and serving up bars as bold as his favorite color, the uptempto beat is laced with slippery flute and lurid energy. While we’re all quarantined because of the COVID-19 pandemic, “Head Shoulders” makes you that much more excited for the world to open back up.
When it comes to live shows, he’s had the opportunity to open for the likes of Juice WRLD, Lil Pump, and Trippie Redd in the States, and even 6ix9ine in Europe.
In fact, Smilez has a standout feature on 6ix9ine’s upcoming album, Tattletales.
Smilez states: “Everything’s about to turn yellow.”
