Rising Toronto rapper Smiley arrives with his first music of 2021, a chilling track titled “In My Zone” accompanied by a juxtaposing video which builds on a hot streak of output since he first made waves with his singular, signature style.
“In My Zone” showcases his uncanny ability to weave his stream-of-conscious wordplay throughout brooding productions. The video, however, shows another side of Smiley where his sense of humor and newfound health regiment take center stage.
The new track is a follow-up to his ‘20 mixtape and major-label debut YYZ-LAX, a seminal body of work named after the airports on his travels between Toronto and California. With the 6 behind him as well as the 6 God’s blessing, he is certainly setting up for a big year.
