A few months ago, Smoove’L unleashed his debut studio album, Ice Cups and Shootouts via Run Music/Interscope Records. The project clocks in at 17 total tracks in length and includes guest appearances from Fleazi Bambino and Toosii. He has decided it’s now time to make his return with a brand new single and video “Billie Green.” On the track, he reminds people of his forte:
I ran out of that Za, had to restock, my clique keep me warm, I got the streets hot (I got the streets hot)/ I put a Queens bitch in the AP like Latifa (Wearin’ you a bussdown, bitch) I get the head, then I dip, hasta la vista, by-by/ Gllt, I’m trendin’ (I’m trendin’)
N***as speak on my name, but he don’t know I’m ‘bout it, my body different (My body different)/ I go walk in LV, and I’m uppin’ that shit, I got no limit (Droppin’ a motherfuckin’ bag)/ Finally here, got the bag that I needed, I’m jumpin’ in it (Jumpin’)
“Ice Cups And Shootouts is my baby,” he writes in a press statement follow the official project release. The title of the body of work serves to represent both the good times and the tough ones. “Ice Cups is something that brings people together, parties, NY basketball games or just hanging on the block – celebration. Shootouts – just a reminder of being from the hood and having to watch your back. Even with good times come bad – grief.”
Smoove’s “4 The Fashion” single served to prep listeners for the full project. It followed a slew of tracks including “Period,” “Turn Left Turn Right” and “Chrome No Heart.” Smoove’L first took off in 2019 with “New Apollos,” which swiftly gained traction in the NYC streets and was soon blasting through people’s speakers at functions across the city.
