D Smoke Releases the Striking Official Visual to “Lil’ Red”


‘Rhythm + Flow’ winner D Smoke remains consistent in his musical efforts and today he drops off the official visual to his single “Lil’ Red” off his debut EP Inglewood High.

Of the record’s inspiration and narrative, he tells Complex, “Lil’ Red depicts a premature loss of innocence. It’s a narrative of a kid becoming a product of his environment. It artistically explores the factors that mold a young goon and ultimately leaves the audience to arrive at their own conclusions—whether hopeful or fatalistic.

D Smoke raps, “The OG’s told him he the homie /Sold him on the dream and gave him lil’ cred /Save your soul, lil’ n***a /Pave your own, lil’ n***a /He wasn’t tryna hear that / Time went on, a real killer / Was born alone and real bitter.

The Nick Sokoloff directed visual captures D Smoke’s scripted imagery thus bringing this record around full circle. A poet, first and foremost, this young, bilingual emcee’s intellect permeates his lyricism and reveals itself further in his cinematic like music videos.

A must see, indulge above and stay tuned for his follow up project set to release in February 2020.
