CMJ Preview: Smif ‘n’ Wessun


“I walk around town/with a pound strapped down/on my side, no frontin’/just in case I gotta smoke sumthin’” – Steele

Truth be told, MC’s nowadays don’t know how to set a song off, but that’s never been a problem for Smif ‘n’ Wessun. With a certified classic under their belt with “Dah Shinin” it’s almost impossible to front on the Brooklyn’s duo’s place in the hip hop history books. Having seen Tek and Steele tear down DC’s Club Liv last year during Duck Down’s 20th Anniversary tour is living proof that the duo hasn’t lost a step and having released their newest musical opus “Monumental” earlier this year produced by Soul Brother #1 Pete Rock to the world, Smif ‘n’ Wessun is easily showing us that Bucktown is just as real as it was 15+ years ago. Check out Smif ‘n’ Wessun at this year’s CMJ Conference in NYC this October 18-22. For more info on Smif ‘n’ Wessun, check them out at
