[MUSIC] REEL Smoovv – “GROOVY IN MY HOOPTIE” | @IAMREELSMOOVV

Minneapolis Hip-Hop Artist, REEL Smoovv teams up with the crooner, Traiveon Dunlap on debut single, “Groovy in a Hooptie”

When you’re a rebellious, educated and enlightened liberator, the world is at your mercy. This saying holds true for Minnesota rap artist, REEL Smoovv, born as Johnny Watkins.

 

In Minneapolis, there’s a unique brew of artists including the late Prince, The Time, and The Soul Asylum; among others. As an artist, Smoovv has a rich history to look upon and encapsulate everything great about the Minneapolis Sound. As a child, listening to R&B legends like The Temptations, Sam Cooke, and Frankie Lymon gave him an insight of great music.


“As I got older and involved in Hip-hop, I grew fond of artists like Nelly, DMX & Outkast. Outside of hip-hop, it was Bob Marley, Peter Tosh & Erykah Badu.”


In 2013, REEL Smoovv’s hip-hop career began with a rap collective called “Flood The Basement” and featured on their “Whatchu Want” project. Later that year, he released two solo projects entitled “The REEL Revolution” and “REEL Smoovv’s Summer Jams.” Shortly after “Flood The Basement” disbanded in 2014, REEL Smoovv joined the Mill City Collective & released his third solo project entitled, “REEL Smoovv’s 31st Groovvs.” This album helped identify him as a real artist with crafty metaphoric content. In 2015, the “Deeply Rooted Tribe” was formed along with two other Mill City Collective artists (FreshVs Sellers & RAW Toon). The group delivered the compilation project, “Low Eye Rise” which featured the lead single, “Tribe Supply.” Since that release, REEL Smoovv has been working on a new project with the Tribe; as well as his solo project.

 

“Hip Hop has the most prominent platform out of all music genres & not enough people use it to promote positivity or even realize the power they have as an artist to shift the dynamic of things.”

 

As an artist with direction, Smoovv has opened up for mainstream artists like The Migos, Curren$y, Bone Thugs and Harmony, Nappy Roots, 50 Cent, Naughty By Nature, The Game and Krayzie Bone; just to name a few. REEL Smoovv possesses characteristics of a self-effacing, reserved, laid back individual with an associates degree. But, with a microphone in hand, he takes on the stage with lyrical content and commands the attention of those in his presence. His latest single “Groovy In A Hooptie,” proves that he is a contender in the hip-hop world.

 

All in all, REEL Smoovv is ready to deliver his message and help change people lives. Let the revolution begin!
