SmCity masquerades as a wolf in sheep’s clothing for “Homeland.” Over dramatic production by !llMind, the D.C.-based MC fashions himself as a man with an agenda that includes infiltrating rap’s trends by pretending to blend in, only so he’s able to help switch the game’s focus once he gets in. In order to do so, he understand he has to look and play the part in the way he styles and walks, in order to get the message across through his words and music.
“They got me behind enemy walls, they don’t know if my i-dentity’s false,” he rhymes in the song’s second verse. “See I pretend be Ross till they make the industry boss, make some Maybach black music, They finish me off, so please remember me y’all.”
“Homeland” is first track released from SmCity’s third album, Empire Falls, set to release on December 3rd. Along with the aforementioned !llMind, the LP features production from the likes of master craftsmen Harry Fraud, DJ Toomp, Statik Selektah and Cookin Soul.
