Smoke Screen / Bio

Since 2007, the group has released 5 full-length projects. 2010's greatly-received "Imagination Beyond Illustration" LP was followed by the adventurous remix project "Re:Imagined".

Chemist and Mooke, the two MCs that make up Smoke Screen have influences in disparate realms of music - alternative, Top 40, underground etc... but when the two Cleveland MCs combine, they have an explosive and party-starting chemistry that's rocked audiences all over the genre barrier.

Smoke Screen has done countless shows throughout the East Coast and Midwest promoting their releases. They have rocked the stage with the likes of Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Girl Talk, Redman, Danny Brown, Das Racist, Wale, Big Sean, Mr. Lif, Evidence, Brother Ali, Clipse, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, Mac Miller, and more.

After a Spring 2011 East Coast Tour, performing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the legendary Cleveland Public Hall and rocking the stage at The House of Blues in Cleveland, Smoke Screen remains consistent and innovative and they are continuously evolving and highly ambitious.

2012 saw the release of the Ice Cold Water EP which was followed by the Smoke & Lasers Remix EP, along with nominations for Best Group and Album Of The Year for Ice Cold Water at The Ohio Hip Hop Awards.

As for 2013, they've already dropped the collaborative Turquoise EP with Urbindex, guest featured on singles for Swarthy Soul, Crucial Taunt and more, played shows with Danny Brown, Redman and Two Fresh and a collaborative project with Ghost Noises is also on the way. That's just the beginning though, stay tuned for the second half of 2013...
