Album Notes
Redefining the Independent Artist: smoothvega
By: Vanessa Valdez

“Da World Ain’t Ready” is what smoothvega told us at the early age of 17, and it seems as though his premonition was right, following his release of “Unbreakable” in 2004, where he proved to be just that. Infallible and full of confidence, smoothvega is finally set to release his most anticipated independent album yet, “3.10.85.” Prepared to lace the masses with a “whole new sound” that differs from his previous projects, Vega has taken every approach necessary to amp up his album, from constantly blogging on the infamous MySpace, to “Total Pandemonium,” an all age event series that’s broken both attendance and revenue records in an effort to keep aspiring teenagers off the streets, and instead, allowing them to showcase their talents in dance, music and on the turn tables in front of an appreciative audience. This album is sure to demonstrate Vega’s growth as an artist, and a reigning leader in independent sales.

Aiming for greatness, smoothvega has already targeted two consecutive awards for the Fort Worth Weekly’s Best Rap/R&B Artist in both 2006 and 2007, and with the support of his hometown, he’s also managed to gain the respect and rhymes of successful artists such as Chino XL on the track, “Walk With Me,” as well as Crooked I, Royce Da 5’9, Sinful, and more recently, Houston’s own-Lil’ Flip on the well-received track, “Joyride.” And that’s exactly what this journey has been for Vega, and now this ride has put him in a position that’ll release his record on a national level, making him a national success, but it doesn’t stop there.

His website alone, has sparked interest in a range of diverse fans all looking to get a dose of Vega’s rhymes, while gaining the attention of those in the industry with his impressive movement in digital distribution. smoothvega is proud to be a Latino making moves in this shady industry, but strives to be more than just that, but rather the first independent artist to sell record high numbers, and once he does, he can add that to his burgeoning resume. A resume that already boasts his track “Egomaniac,” on the legendary DJ Smallz "Southern Smoke" mixtape series, a feature on MTV2’s Dew Circuit Breakout, articles in XPOZ, Fort Worth Weekly, WWS and several other publications that are all raging about this Texan. He’s literally booked and co-headlines his own shows with artists such as, Frankie J, Lil’ Flip, Erik-Michael Estrada (formerly of O-Town) and several others who realize that smoothvega is really living up to his motto. “The Game Done Stepped Up,” and Vega expresses this motto in several ways through his witty wordplay, down to his very own promotion; he’s more than just an artist. Vega is a motivator and a true lyricist who has paved a new way for the independent artist to prosper, so don’t be left out, cop the album and step your game up.
