For The Rhythm + Flow
Netflix Rhythm + Flow’s new winner D Smoke is a like a rose that grew from the concrete. Last week, D Smoke earned the title of Champion for Netflix’s first –ever music competition series. D Smoke beat out the other top three contestants; Flawless Real Talk, Troyman, and Londynn B.
D Smoke won the hearts of millions of viewers on the Netflix finale. The last performance of his conscious track “The Last Supper”, was the finishing touch that earned him the title of champion and a grand prize of $250,000 with no strings attached. D Smoke, champion of Rhythm + Flow, won over millions of fans this month using not only his lyrics but his truth, intelligence, impeccable talent, and knowledge of self.
Here are 7 new developments D Smoke has cooking up for his new fans:
1) Give Back To His Community:
The reason why the people love D Smoke so much is because he is authentically in touch with his roots, he hasn’t forgotten where he comes from. D Smoke revealed in his Newsweek Interview that he plans to invest his $250,000 winnings and use some to distribute scholarships to young people in his Inglewood community. He stated he would also be using the money to invest in his craft and buying a home.
“Before I was a teacher I was doing mentoring and goal-setting… with high school students… I’ll continue to help provide them with the spaces and resources to really help them move forward in their lives.”
D Smoke shows impeccable wisdom, intelligence, and discipline. How many rappers do you know, would give away money for scholarships with their first check in the game? I’ll wait…
2) D SMOKE Dropped a EP!
Dropping a EP, one day after the competition?!
Talk about not gaining momentum.
D Smoke dropped his first EP called INGLEWOOD HIGH a day after winning the competition. “Inglewood High is a project that allowed me to tap into myself and some common experiences of other people from my city… It starts off with that warm pride of the city and I tap into a different kind of turned-up energy before ending with something inspirational.”
The EP is available for streaming on all platforms. The EP has 7 tracks and can be streamed on popular platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Sound Cloud.
3) BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR 3 NEW VIDEOS:
