Smooth Waves Premiere: Double A- ‘Graffiti’ (Mixtape)


“My goal for this project is to broaden my fan base and give people music to leave no question in their mind why they should listen to me and everyone in Crew.Only. It’s music that’s easy to like and get into which I hope will appeal to different tastes and help our following grow exponentially.”

Double A, a member of the Crew.Only collective, has just released his mixtape Graffiti. The tape consists of 14 tracks, features Smooth Waves’ own Mardi Lex, Pat App and Johnny Rain among others and can be streamed below. Double A shows solid growth on this project, going in over a variety of beats and holding his own on each one. He said the project is being released so late in the year because he “started finding a lot of beats and writing songs that I was really excited about and it was a matter of making a project out of it and getting it to the public ASAP because I know they’d love it.”

When I asked him about the overall sound of the project and the direction he wanted to take with Graffiti, he said he “wasn’t really trying to go any specific direction with this project, rather just letting loose on a collection of different stuff which helped me stay creative.”

Give the tape a listen below and let us know what you think!

Smooth Waves Music Week In Review


On this week’s edition of The Week In Review we take a look at a lot of quality music from a wide variety of artists that we’ve been listening to lately. From Mardi Lex to Nas, Smooth Waves has the past week covered.

Nas- The Season

It was cool to see Nas flow over such an old track from J. Dilla, RIP. Very reminiscent of old school New York hip hop. Who knows what this one will end up on in the future. Take a listen below.

Earrly Mac- #nextroom

Earrly Mac has continued to catch our attention with his fresh new sound and overall vibe. The track below is slowed down and tells the listener a story about slaying in the room adjacent to your homies. We can definitely relate to the situation that Earrly Mac brings to light.

Lil’ Wayne- “Gotti” ft. The Lox

Instead of the Carter V Lil Wayne drops off a very mediocre song. Not much to say about this one, Wayne falls flat and The Lox fail to impress as well. Give it a listen below and who knows when we’ll get Tha Carter V.

Theophilus London- Vibes

Who would have thought that Theophilus would have an album that’s in contention for the best of the year. The record was executive produced by Kanye, so all of the beats are fire. Theophilus also creates a wild, almost cinematic experience for the listener by having tracks weave in and out like scenes in a movie. Stream the full album below.


Fresh off the release of LIFE RHYMES, the boi Mardi is back with some flames. “Spark” is an uptempo song that doesn’t slow down for a second. Peep the single below and stick with us for all news Mardi Lex.

Ro Ransom’s Ro Ransom Is The Future

Here’s JW’s review of RRITF, definitely an interesting read.


Curtis Williams- “A Rap About a Girl”

Curtis Williams came out of nowhere this week with a brand new track titled “A Rap About A Girl.” We were caught off guard when we saw a very rare image of Lindsay Lohan posted up as a perfect 10 as the single artwork. Who cares what she was putting up her nose awhile ago, she could really get it. Before we get too off track, here’s “A Rap About a Girl.”

Hyype- “Will Smith”

No one cares what you were for Halloween. Hyype IS Will Smith. The Chicago rapper put out a video accompanying his brand new track “Will Smith.” New music from Hyype is always something we look forward to. Peep the video below.
