Brandon Smith is a young confident rapper/producer out of Dallas who moved to San Marcos last year to attend Texas State University. He has already released three albums with the latest one titled Africa: Black Boy, to a Black Man. In his most recent interview with University Star, he explained that one his main missions is help the audience learn something.

His latest album Africa is very much a concept album with a theme of evolution and growth. Tracks one through four are very different from five through nine. His “Black Boy” version, if you will, is aimed more at fun rap and talking about generic hip hop content in a clever way, whereas the “Black Man” half of the album is more political­-aiming aggression towards politics and society.

Brandon Smith is covering a lot of ground at such a young age and it is exciting to know that he will bless the MR Fest stage at such an early blooming stage. At the rate that he is going, I have no doubt that he will become one of the great rappers of his generation coming out of Texas.
