Smino's debut full-length


hasn't left rotation

since being released

a few weeks back.

I haven't even written

about it because

I've been intimidated

by its enormity

and density.

I need 50 pages

and 400 more listens

to properly digest.

That being said,

while blkswn is still new,

there's no sitting still

for St. Louis Smino Grigio.

He's played numerous

new songs on his IG Live,

including something

for Monte Booker's upcoming project.

To top it off,

the first set of visuals

from blkswn

arrives in the form of "Anita".

Starring Smi and Jean Deaux

(who also directed it),

the brightly colored music video

is a love story set in the desert

between billiards and cacti,

flashlights and open roads.

Admire the pinks and reds

and yellows and greens.

Don't sleep.
