Smoozilla is one of those up and coming artist who should not be overlooked. With over a decade of perfecting his sound, "Smoo" finally sets his eyes on becoming the next big name in hip hop. Raised on the crime stricken streets of Chicago, Smoo quickly learns to rise above all the violence and poverty by voicing his frustration through his pen and pad. The MDF (Million Dollar Flow ENT) representative grew up in a family influenced by music which is what gave him a natural appetite for rapping. In high school Smoozilla became a member of the rap trio 'Sons Of One," and signed to indie label, Flow 4 Flow Records. Even though their 2002 self-titled album didn't reach the desired success, Smoo gained the respect of his home town and built a reputation as a force to be reckoned with.
