Smokes – “Glowing” – Imperial Music Group

Smokes is an Asian/American rapper from Wisconsin. The electrifying MC is a witty, multi-talented, and passion-filled rising star in the world of Rap music. Smokes has been featured in XXL, The Source, OnSmash.com, AllHipHop.com, and more. However, over the past several months Smokes has been hit with a myriad of devastating losses. In March 2011, Smokes’ father passed away from an ongoing fight with alcohol related diseases. Shortly there after his brother was sentenced to prison and a close friend tried to commit suicide. Lastly in August 2011, Smokes’ renowned recording studio was raided and shut down. Agents confiscated computers, hard drives, and videos that held all the work that Smokes planned on releasing this fall.

After rounds of soul searching, he is now back recording and working on a new project with new music. He’s also working on new videos and he’s going on a major tour this Fall with Jackie Chain and the Yellow Boyz. Check the Tour dates below.
