Smino Unleashes “Reverend” Track

Smino is on a roll. The St. Louis rap phenomenon has been flowing nonstop since the release of his sophomore album, NOIR, last November. His latest single, “Reverend,” produced by Chicago newcomer, prodxvzn, is a lyrical stream of consciousness that serves as another testament to the midwest MC’s otherworldy gifts. Listen HERE.

The artist is currently featured on the Dreamville posse cut, “Sacrifices,” with J. Cole, Saba and Earth Gang. He also nabbed a coveted guest spot on Chance the Rapper’s album, The Big Day, on the song, “Eternal.” The duo recently performed it for the first time at Lollapalooza and, by all accounts, ripped the stage.

Earlier this year, Smino headlined the sold-out “Hoopti Tour,” which took him to 33 cities across the United States, Canada and England and appeared on an episode of Wild’n Out. His new single “Reverend” is now available at all digital retailers via Zero Fatigue/Downtown Interscope Records.
