Biography

Latyren Henderson B.K.A. Billy Smokes was born on June 30, 1978 in Flint MI. It was in the sixth grade when he first got introduced to the Hip Hop culture, and instantly became addicted to the rush it produced inside of him. By the time B. Smokes graduated from high school he knew, without a doubt that this was the angle his life was about to go in. For him rapping came easier than most, Billy realized at a young age he has special gift. Once his lyrics are put onto paper, he automatically remembers the words in his mind. He put his first album out, Filthy Flint Money, about 2 years ago and sold over 3,000 copies in a city that is populated by only 116,000 people. The album did extremely well in a short period of time and caught the likes of Nichols and Irv Gottie with who have expressed their interest and are currently reviewing his newest album. Soon after that Billy also released a mix tape, which fell into the right hands at Sony Records and caught their attention as well. They recently sent him a few sample tracks that he is in the process of finishing. Billy has been in the local newspaper 3 times concerning his rap career and has also appeared on Fox 66 news with an interview by Kim Russell focused on his newly found relationship with Sony Records. Billy admits that he would not have made it this far without the support of long time friend Matt Hinkle. With their help he has been able to successfully outpour his emotions about his environment and the struggles of young black males trying to make it.
