About

After the - quite aggressive - Action Jackson mixtape and with all the shit that's happening around the world right now, I wanted to do a more positive, more conscious mixtape.

Smile is all about love: Love for Hip Hop, love for your city, love for loved ones but also love for hard beats and rhymes.

As a huge fan of Gandhi's philosophy on non violence, I wanted to pose as him on the cover. Herr van Toll took the photo. Köpenick legend and neighbor Romano helped me with the intro. Berlin graffiti artist Smile (the one and only) contributed his tag as the logo.

So, all of us are sending out good vibes to the world! Happy head nodding. Don't forget to have a good time and smile!

If you want the songs of the mixtape with no effects, no drops, no scratches, please go out and support every artist on this mixtape individually: Buy the singles, EP's, LP's & merch.

Chart positions

On Mixcloud, Smile was 3rd in the global gangsta rap chart, 10th in the global boom bap chart, 19th in the global underground hip hop chart, 47th in the global rap chart and 94th in the global hip hop chart.
