Artist Review: D-Smoke – “Problems” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Nate Broshears

Some Hip Hop just can not be ignored. And that’s exactly the case when NYC rapper D-Smoke dropped his single “Problems”.

With a vocal delivery reminiscent of a more polished Dr. Dre, D-Smoke brings a flow and versatility that touches on both originality and familiarity. “Problems” is one of those tracks that not only catches your attention, but demonstrates this rapper’s artistic merit perfectly as well.

From a very well executed beat structure to an old school conceptual audio sample to fill the shoes of the hook, D-Smoke‘s musicianship is something heavily expressed in his content, context, and vocal overtone. With rhymes that are witty and clever, “Problems” is a song that isn’t too convoluted to follow; it’s a track you can latch onto, and come back time and time again to find something new to appreciate. It’s a song that just doesn’t get old and never loses its impact.

With NYC being an elite music scene, it can sometimes be flooded. Every musician and artist wants their music to garner attention and stand out; but D-Smoke is gonna have a lot less aggravation to deal with, primarily because he figured out the key ingredient to getting your music to stand out, and it’s one that every artist thinks is a secret: outstanding songwriting.

There, now you have the secret. The search is over. But D-Smoke already has this down. So while the fire is lit as he continues to climb his way to the top, be sure to check out “Problems” and see exactly how D-Smoke implements the music industry’s best kept secret.
