Marlo Smith joined co-hosts DJ Paul and Odalys on a new episode of “Mafia Radio” discussing different influential people in rap culture.
Marlo Smith, New York rapper and previous TuneCore “Heat Seekers” contest winner in April 2020, joined DJ Paul and Odalys in a new episode of Mafia Radio to discuss his grind as an independent artist, his upcoming album, legends in the rap game, the drill scene in New York City, and a shared love for Kanye West, despite the controversy surrounding him.
The rapper is proudly independent, with distribution through TuneCore, a relationship that has resulted in its own rewards, not to mention, the fact that Smith maintains complete control and ownership of his music. Speaking on the independent distribution platform, Smith said, “I have a relationship there that’s super genuine, and they really care about taking my craft to the next level. And they also have a lot of reporting stuff, backend analytics, to show you where your fans at, where that money coming in, all that stuff that you need.” Smith is not missing out on a cent, saying, “They just added TikTok a few months ago, after it started blowing up like crazy. Even Instagram now, when you doing the stories.”
