The Smart Asses

Smart Asses – Review

They rap about the everyday things in their life, whether it’s a debate over who would win in a game between the Lakers and the Clippers, or how one of them is an introvert while the other is an extrovert. They display some newer school flow, while going back and forth in a Run DMC […]

Scott Smith – The Sum Of Life – Single Review

The track features David LaFlamme, a virtuoso classical and rock violinist who really makes the song for me. He was the founder of the iconic San Francisco band It’s A Beautiful Day, and toured back in the day with Dr. John and The Doors. Smith also invited Nina Gerber, who became famous for playing with the late […]
