  1. I'm sure I won't win a "most creative question" award for this one but..ask him what his impression was of Static when he first met him. Not necessarily just his first impression, jus in general when they first started bein around each other.. And how they met.

  5. Can he and Black get together and do a couple of club dates or something? I just want to let you guys know that pound for pound, Playa is one of the greatest groups I have ever heard. Not only could EVERY member sing (and I mean KILL it), but the material was tight as hell. The runs on the Cheers to You album are just plain ridiculous. There's a lot of us who feel this way about y'all.

  8. @ Jerrilyn, I totally agree. Wasn't there for the first go round. Would love to see them in VA! Ask Smokey how he feels about his success now looking back at how hard he worked...from Da Bassment Days onward. Also, does he feel it's hard to stay relevant in the music business?

  9. you can ask him about his production, how he got into making beats & what were some things he picked up being around the other Bassment producers (DeVante, Dalvin, Tim, Stevie J ...)

  15. I have read a lot of different interviews that suggest that you and Static were not on good terms and had not been for years. Would you mind elaborating on that? I know how gossip is and I would just like to hear it from the Horses mouth so to speak.... BTW...I love your music. Angel is my favorite.

  26. Thanks for putting this interview together guys,I have always been a big supporter of your music Smoke i remember when you first released personal pain and pleasure i recieved the actual cd in the mail and you had signed a picture of yourself in there. Also you not only did that but because it was released a little late you sent an exclusive track to me. I just wanna say thankyou Smoke it's that type of interaction with your fans that means so much to us, i got all your albums and will continue to support true R&B not only with my words but like you said with my actions. Dope interview keep doing what you're doing. A Major fan from Australia Sebastian.

I've heard back in 2005 somebody talk about that "Suppertime Mixtape", but i found it in 2008, & unfortunaly, the mixtape was just available in mp3 format.
Released with no real promotion (but Louisville resident as i know, had this mixtape for a while), i guess lot of us didn't know about it until lately.
This is for the hood lovers, got Lil Flip on it, Young Sears productions, it's OG Music here! We also got Playa songs on it.
I guess Static wanted to give us just a taste of what Suppertime could be, the "Vol. 1" meaned it had to has other volume coming, but for this one like i said, it's OG Music except the last track...




Edit: You can listen & buy the mixtape here

UPDATE: So we…
