St. Louis up and comer Smino celebrates one million plays on his ‘Kolors‘ collaboration with Soulection producer Monte Booker by releasing a brand new cut entitled ‘Menu‘. Smino came with a decent buzz catalyst in the blkjuptr EP last year, mixing Southern trap sensibilities and Midwestern pride much like his city, which can technically fit both classifications. On the new track, Smino leans R&B with bouncy digital blips and trappy 808s to interject. He switches speeds and cadences while delivering playful wordplay incorporating rhymes about Adam Sandler and Jolly Ranchers to show how he appreciates his woman and what awaits her in the privacy of their bedroom. The contrasting mix of playful but explicit lyrics and the buoyant beat anchored in trap bass is pleasantly contradictory and insanely catchy.
Smino and Monte have come together to make some great music; the track was trending on Twitter before it was even released. Smino is rapidly gaining popularity with his music and is looking a lot like an artist with a bright future with every new release. While there is no official word on Smino’s upcoming debut mixtape, we can likely expect an announcement in the near future.
