Smino is a legend in my book and he is one of my favorite artists that I have listened to over the past decade, and yesterday he gave his massive fanbase a huge blessing with a brand new mixtape titled “She Already Decided”. I didn’t get a chance to listen to the project until today, but from what I was seeing from the feedback from social media and people that I trust, it was all positive so I came into this tape expecting something special. From the moment I pressed play on the first track, Smino had me on the edge of my seat, it set a tone for the tape and Smino didn’t let his foot off of the gas for the entire duration. Smino is so impressive to me in so many ways, but more than anything, the way that he switches his flows is spectacular, he seemingly has hundreds of different flows tucked away ready to go at any time. Those skills were displayed fully on this mixtape, as well as his ability to make great rap records as well as silky smooth R&B cuts, and he played around with the idea that some of his fans prefer one to the other on the skit on “Mike Jones”. I thoroughly enjoyed every single song on this project but my favorite one was either the intro “Fronto Isley” or his remix of Baby Keem’s ‘Orange Soda’ that he titled “Blac Soda”. Another amazing part of this mixtape release was the dope website that Smino + his team created around the tape, it gave you heavy 2000’s vibes and it was just a dope format overall, I explored the website for thirty minutes myself. This is easily one of the best mixtapes that I have heard in YEARS, shout out to Smino for providing us with this great project in such troubling times, your fanbase thanks you & appreciate you for it. Take some time out of your Tuesday to stream this fantastic new mixtape below!
