Couldn’t be happier to have Smino in working on his new album with Chris. As I’ve said many times, including tonight to the guys – Smino is one of my favorite artists out in the whole music scene right now. I’m very happy they’re here to wrap up his album & I get to sit in for a sneak peak into what’s coming. Chris arrived first to get the sessions organized and map out the plan. Smino & Jean Deaux pulled up shortly after Chris arrived. They listened through a lot of the songs and started cutting some new vocals at the end of the night. Can’t wait to see what comes next :)

We shot two Live at Truth videos tonight with King Mez! I’ve known him for 3-4 years now, he’s one of my favorite people that I’ve met through the studio. He released two songs this month and I wanted to see if we could shoot a Live at Truth in support of his songs.
