D Smoke is the winner of Netflix’s first season of 'Rhythm & Flow.' The brother of TDE singer SiR released his new album, 'Black Habits', earlier this month, and the title song is a wordplay-heavy celebration of blackness. Today’s Verified, which premiered exclusively on Apple Music, is his second time on the series—he stopped by Genius in December to break down “Last Supper.”

"It's one thing to say we live side by side, but when you start dancing to the same music, start moving to the same rhythms, then there's this marriage of cultures that happens" Like damn that's mad deep. Especially since growing up in Hawai'i and I noticed the connections made when I would meet some Maori people or Latino people and we would be listening to the same songs, the connections built went so much deeper. It made the connection and admiration for each others cultures just so much more. Also like how Damian Marley talked about the way he felt connected to the Hawaiian culture and us to the Jamaican culture for Hawai'i was one of the first places to accept their music. Shoots we got Jawaiian music (Jamaican Hawaiian) because of it. D Smoke yfinna be a legend. Such a master with words so carefully placed.
