Ra’Shad Smoove; born in the DC Metro area and graduate of Johnson C. Smith University, is a chameleon of the mic. This dynamic 30-year-old is no stranger to making music that vibrates the airwaves as he does making heads bounce. At the age of 9, he developed an appreciation for making rhymes that manipulate beats. Inspired by Hip hops greats music became an outlet filled with his metaphoric style infused with his versatility. He creatively drops lines like: “People see the finish/ But don’t know where to start/ So I pave the way with light/ like a Michael Jackson walk.” Consequently, his style earned him the name “Smoove” from his college friends.
