The awesome part about kids is the fact that some of them actually get the genuine opportunity to enjoy BEing just that…a kid! They find thrills in the smallest of things like BEing with friends, school, singing, dancing, and just having fun. This is a story that Jermaine Smith, BEtter known as Scooter Smiff could probably write, yet he could do us all a favor and rap the story, or choreograph a fresh dance piece to illustrate how he just enjoys his life as a “regular kid”.
The honest truth is that Scooter Smiff is far from “regular”! His musical expertise makes him appear wise BEyond his years BEing that he’s already made himself a household name by touring and BEing backed by mega-entertainers like B2K & his mentor Chris Brown. One thing’s for sure, Scooter Smiff is proving to BE unstopable!
Scooter is originally a native of Maryland, but has embarked on major parts of the country through his transition to Los Angeles, but like the true heart of any kid, he too had his nervous moments about branching out to a new place. “Moving from Baltimore to California, initially, I though, bad move, but it turned out to BE good ‘cuz look where I am now… I’ve hung out with a lot of the BEst young artists and the person who’s considered the biggest pop singer right now, so I’ve learned that bad moves can actually turn into good moves, which happened. So, hey, I’m blessed.”
I’m not sure if it was ever Scooter’s intention to BE such a musical threat, but he was born in anera where he had the opportunity to see like minded young artists take entertaining to the next level, and he plans on doing the same, but to the tenth power. “I’m trying to bring that old Lil Romeo, Lil Bow Wow feel back to where it was, but I’m going to have that where old school meets new hip hop type of feel. I want to BE young, but still get respect from older rappers like Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. I want those type of people to respect me as a rapper and as the BEst at this age.”
Scooter Smiff draws his influences from artists like Cassidy, Jadakiss, Rakim, Most Def, Lupe Fiasco, and other smooth lyricists that are true to the wordplay BEhind the music and not just the game.
BE looking out for Scooter’s upcoming single “Dunks” to BE all over radio and television. Check out some pictures from the video that was recently shot and should BE on all the countdowns soon!
Sky’s the limit for Scooter Smiff so outside of dancing, choreographing, and rapping, he plans on taking on some acting roles in the near future so keep it locked to Scooter’s Twitter @DaRealScooter for all the updates.
