Smoke – Reflections Of A Real Life

Smoke Aka Smoke Dog is the original founder of the Seattle super group F.T.S. also known as Full Time Soldiers. It was in the mid-ninties that Smoke would meet an aspiring producer by the name of D-Sane and the two would connect instantly. With the most important piece of the puzzle now in motion Smoke started to recruit close homies and F.T.S. and Street Level Records was born. Described as always having an original style and versatile flow Smoke became a fan favorite as a member of the group F.T.S. After two albums “Full Time Soldiers” and “Money Motivated” the group went their separate ways but Smoke continued to press forward by starting his own label Red Door Records. His motivation and dedication for success is evident as he has been the most active member since departing Street Level Records. As CEO of Red Door Records Smoke’s first release was his debut solo album “Scarred Soul” which featured J-Dub Of F.T.S. and Popsykle of Self Tightld.

Smoke would follow up a few years later with a compilation based on the labels name which featured several artists he was working with as well as former members of F.T.S. and past known affiliates. After two projects Smoke was feeling confident about running a label at this point and put out his second album “Out The Box” in 2007 which featured Red Door labelmates as well as Todd G, Syko, Popsykle, J-Dub, Madd Dogg, Skuntdunanna, Byron Douglas Aka BD, and many more. After seeing the drive Smoke had the CEO of Eastside Muzik “Bullet” offered to work with Smoke on his third solo album “Reflections Of A Real Life”. The album would be a compilation of some  previously released material mixed in with new songs for a joint venture release. The release would spawn the debut of FTS Muzik a newly formed label in which Smoke plans to bring Seattle music back to prominence.
