Smoothvega

Smoothvega is back with a vengeance this year with his latest album appropriately entitled, “Exclamation Point.” Vega has always been determined to be more than just a rapper, he wanted to be someone who left this earth with a legacy that stood for something, and if you’ve been following Vega throughout his career, you’d see that Vega is well on his way to accomplishing that. Don’t let the six year gap in music fool you, as Vega has been busy making an impact in his community in a different way, outside of the music.

In August 2007, Vega founded Total Pandemonium, an event that just started off as a local dance competition for kids of all ages, but soon lived up to its name. Many teenagers grabbed hold of this golden opportunity that Vega provided, and turned it in to such a success that it established both attendance and revenue breaking records. Much of the youth involved with this event have come from broken families, where their dreams were rarely considered, therefore left unexplored; Vega helped facilitate their dreams as well as his own. Initially, Vega set this event up to help in generating some buzz for himself and to perform his own music, and in helping himself, he was also able to launch the careers of others from recording artists to professional cheerleaders. As of late, Vega has continued his charitable acts by conducting an annual toy drive, and even enlisted the help of Major League Baseball Super Star, Nelson Cruz, formerly of the Texas Rangers. Vega has, and continues to use his lime-light for the greater good, recognizing the importance of giving back, just as his fans have done for him. “Smoothvega is a perfect example of an artist that does his thing on the indie grind, and he gives back to the community and the love is given right back. Musically, the proof is in the product,” says Illuminati2G.Com.

The latest product that Vega has blessed us with is the long-awaited, “Exclamation Point.” The title speaks for itself, in the fact that his career has been just that, an exclamation of him, his life, his goals, and the outcome of all of his work. The album is complete with appearances and backing from some of Texas’ finest, such as Paul Wall. His latest single featuring Paul Wall, “Hold It Down,” has received air play on 97.9 The Beat, with a guest interview feature from J. Kruz. Adding to his credentials, Vega’s single has also been named K104’s “Street Swag Champion” and has also been nominated as song of the year in the well-respected, Fort Worth Weekly. However, Vega is no stranger to these accolades, as he’s been recognized by Fort Worth Weekly as “Best Rap/R&B Artist,” 3x, in addition to all of the publications he’s been featured in such as, worldstarhiphop.com, Murder Dog Magazine, hiphopdx.com, 2DopeBoyz.com and countless others. His career in hip-hop has been confirmed, and it’s clear that people view Smoothvega as a talented artist, but let’s also recognize him for being a motivational person to all of those who may be in need.

We all know that there are several routes one can take in getting into this industry, but Vega has always been known to legitimately and legally get his hustle on. His music is about the beautiful struggle, and his experiences that reflect the normal life of a husband working nine to five, trying to provide for his family, and still living out his dreams. He’s as sincere as they come, which is why “Exclamation Point” took so long to create, as he felt the importance of being as real as possible and doing it all on his own dime. Let’s recognize Smoothvega as more than just an award winning rapper, but one who has paved the way to opening up this industry to our culture, and as an outstanding figure within the community; Smoothvega, award winning in life and in rhymes.
