Smoke DZA – The Hustlers Catalog 2 (Download Free album Zip)
Sean Pompey (born February 8, 1984), better known by his stage name Smoke DZA, is an American rapper and songwriter.
Smoke DZA was born February 8, 1984, at Harlem Hospital in New York City and has lived in New York all his life. The son of two Guyanese immigrants, Smoke was exposed to music at home by his father and fell in love with hip hop at a young age. He grew up listening to and emulating fellow New Yorkers Jay-Z and Notorious BIG.
After dropping out of high school to pursue his music career, DZA began battle rapping and has battled fellow Harlem-based rapper J.R. Writer. Smoke DZA decided on his moniker after being influenced by Chris Tucker’s character Smokey from the movie Friday and the acronym DZA stands for “Dream Zone Achieve”.
He was discovered by Jonny Shipes of Cinematic Music Group in 2002 and went on to ghostwrite for numerous rappers, including Hi-Tek. In 2002, he partnered to become one half of the group Smoke & Numbers, until going solo in 2008.
Smoke cites fellow New York natives Jay-Z and Notorious B.I.G. as his main influences. As an adolescent he would use their songs and write his lyrics, helping him learn rhyming patterns.”I used to re-write Biggie. It started with ‘Mo Money, Mo Problems.’ I would switch up the words, make it my own.” He has also cited fellow Harlem rappers like Mase, Big L and Dipset as influences and inspiration.
Though he is often mistakenly classified as a weed rapper, Smoke considers himself a lifestyle rapper and prefers not to be confined to one genre of rap. DZA’s albums and mixtapes often feature many collaborative tracks. DZA says he enjoys collaborating with fellow artists like Dom Kennedy and Kendrick Lamar as he feels it helps him “step his ball game up” in terms of his craft.
