Smino releases a new song “24-8” as his fans await his forthcoming album Love 4 Rent. Released with the music video shot by The FIlm Lord, the song was produced by Phoelix. The title and lyrics pay homage to the Legendary Basketball Player Kobe Bryant, who wore the No. 24 and No. 8 jerseys during his NBA career.
“24/7, I’m gettin’ my dough, 24/8, ’bout feelin’ like Kobe,” he raps.
He also penned an open letter to the “SmiHive,” detailing his dedication to his creative and personal journey which he starts off with “Happy belated 2 Kobe “Bean” Bryant.”
“I Spent Alotta time becoming a better fren to myself.. I spent Alotta time searching for time I already had… I spent Alotta time tryna make this shit perfect only to realize the only perfect things come from God and just being myself is perfect bc I come from God Himself…” he writes. “I spent Alotta moments wondering if I even gave a fu*k about dropping Music bcuz in dis world…it seems like the talent isn’t appreciated as much as the “Challenge” or the moment..”
