Born and raised in the Cereal City of Battle Creek, MI, it wasn't long before SmartMouf became acquainted wit the harsh realities of the world. The emcee was exposed to a lifestyle commonly adopted by those surviving in a small town while constantly having incredibly big dreams. Along with handling situations not so common to inner city youth such as helping to raise and then losing a younger brother to Cerebral Palsy or having the chance to travel to or live in states such as Chicago, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Tennessee and Georgia. With wisdom and life lessons from both his Mother and Father, SmartMouf had a balance in life that many of his childhood peers were missing. It is this balance that is responsible for his “Think 1st, Speak 2nd” attitude, hence the moniker “Smart-Mouf”. During his upbringing, he was constantly surrounded by an eclectic range of music. Paying close attention to the production and vocal arrangements of R&B/Hip-Hop musicians such as Timbaland, Missy, Aaliyah and Rap/Hip-Hop legends and businessmen such as Tupac, B.I.G., Jay-Z and Master P, which helped prepare him for the opportunities that would one day arise in the music industry. After linking up with Deshaun Anderson of Feel Me Records in 2007, Mouf released his 1st mixtape “Get Smart Or Get Smacked Vol.1” creating a buzz in his hometown and out-of-town, followed by the success of his 1st single “Swerve”. From then on SmartMouf worked under Feel Me Records to perfect his skill, working on 6 unreleased projects at once (G.S.O.G.S. The Collection) during 2009-2010, and then quietly releasing 2011's “Free Crack! - The Sample”. Additionally, he has released multiple tracks with FMR and a wide variety of local artists from his hometown of Battle Creek,MI as well as local artists from other cities and states. Through these efforts SmartMouf was able to showcase to the world his musical versatility, unparalleled ability and humorous word play. His hard work and unmatched talent even allowed him to work with a wide range of respected music vets such as Kia Shine, Maino, Young Jeezy and Young Buck. He was also featured on Slip-N-Slide Records “On Da Grind” website. He is set to release “Free Crack 2! - The Comeback” and he is currently working on his debut album “UnderRated & OverHated” alongside Battle Creek producers T.R.I.L.L. Meech and Hot Shot Beatz.
