Emerging over the last two years from Collingwood housing commission flats, BBG Smokey is a founding member of the 66 collective. The 18-year-old African-Australian artist - also known as Sean Deng - demonstrates impeccable flow through his own unique nuanced delivery. Akin to Future or Roddy Rich-like melody with a touch of dancehall influence, as BBG Smokey candidly raps about pain and loneliness
Perhaps testament to his lyrical honesty and speaking from his personal hardships, Smokey is the group’s highest streamed artist with close to half a million views on YouTube, and appearances on the Juice WRLD tour and Beyond the Valley.
Of 'Guidance', Smokey remarks “I made ‘Guidance’ when I was in pain; my brothers getting locked up, like my brother G Murda was locked up at that time. The current situation I face in life is when one brother goes in, another brother comes out; that's the pattern, only if all my brothers was out at the same time. But “Guidance” is also about the people that betrayed me that I used to call my brothers. Anyways I’m now locked up so free me. #FREESMOKEY.”
