Hip-Hop recording artist T. Carriér is breaking new ground in the music industry. Formerly known as “Smoovie Baby”, he has reinvented himself and taken his sound to new heights.
After changing his stage name, Carriér dropped Let That Marinate in November 2015, a bass-heavy, danceable mixtape, to introduce the world to his new artistic identity. In April 2016, he released the project There’s Been A Change of Plans, with more confessional, stream-of consciousness raps that touch on a variety of autobiographical subjects.
Carriér’s new R&B-influenced direction aligns him with artists such as Drake and Bryson Tiller, who are paving the way for male rappers and R&B singers to move away from the alpha-male personae of years past.
Carriér’s forthcoming album, Gumbo & Prerolls, is set to be released in 2017. Listen below to his new drop featuring fellow Bay Area artist, CALEBORATE, Feelings.
