'Rubber Band Pops', written by Smokee over a beat by hip hop producer Z Dot, is his first single on general release. Citing rappers such as Nas and Big L as inspiration, Smokee is an artist on a mission – to lyrically educate fans of rap while entertaining.

Although caught in a cycle or social deprivation growing up in Harrow. Smokee rose from the pressure and created a new life for himself, inspired by his talent for rap and hunger to succeed.
