Smooth Wave’s very own Johnny Clouds brings some West Coast heat with “La La” (Prod. by Ethan Ryan)


“Imma do well, Imma excel, even if I don’t make double XL.”

It’s been a minute since we heard something from Johnny Clouds. The California rapper has been working on new music for the past few months and “La La” is a direct product of that hard work. He absolutely snaps on this one. We’re used to hearing much more laid back sounds from him, more of an early hip hop vibe, but he definitely does his thing on this one. A very nice change of pace that will help him reach a different audience. Johnny’s versatility shouldn’t be questioned. Production on the track comes from Ethan Ryan, who did a very dope job with the remix. Stream “La La” below and share it with your friends.

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.

Also, here’s our Halloween Playlist:

Here’s a “Spark” for your Tuesday night, courtesy of Smooth Waves’ very own Mardi Lex


Fresh off the release of his debut mixtape, Life Rhymes, Mardi Lex is back with a new single. “Spark” speaks for itself. It’s obvious that Mardi has no intention of slowing things down towards the end of 2014. The upbeat new single is the perfect song to listen to on your boring Tuesday night. Stream it below and share it on Soundcloud and Twitter.
