Biography

Harlem, New York NY, United States (2009 – present)

Sean Pompey (Born in Harlem, New York NY, United States), better know by his stage name Smoke DZA, is an American rapper who first gained recognition in 2009 with the release of his first mixtape Substance Abuse. He followed it with the release of his 2010 mixtape George Kush Da Button, his release in 2011, Rolling Stoned, and his 2012 release, Rugby Thompson (prod. Harry Fraud). Smoke DZA often references movies and marijuana with a slow, laidback style of rap.

Hip Hop is just a hobby for some but for Smoke DZA, it is a way of life. Born and raised in Harlem, NY, DZA (real name Sean Pompey) was raised surrounded by music, though it wasn’t necessarily hip hop, “My first exposure to music was through my Dad.” He reflects, “He played his oldies every weekend and still does up to this day.” DZA was introduced to and fell in love with hip hop at a young age and began a journey that would lead him from dropping out of high school to being one of the hottest, most sought after unsigned rappers in the game today. “I was way too popular in high school,” DZA states, “ I used to battle everyone whether it be in the lunchroom or in front of the school. I was way more interested in that, than attending classes.” His early creative processes started where many rappers do, with the lyrical genius of Notorious B.I.G., “I remember learning all of Biggie’s verses, writing them down and making my own renditions of the songs.
