For most, the start of a new year is the opportunity to try out a few modest life changes—maybe quit smoking, lose a few pounds, or start that new exercise routine. Emboldened by the big moves he made in 2012, SmCity‘s thinking a little bigger this time around. On his latest mixtape single, the D.C. repper plots his New Year’s Revolution, planning to surpass himself in every facet of his professional life, and bring sucker emcees to their knees for good measure. A soulfully driving sampled beat by Sean Sundance underscores the artist’s determination, and a refreshing chorus by Alison Carney rounds out the package. For this ambitious banger and many more quality cuts, check out Sm’s Dream Cemetery LP when it drops via Twenty20 Music in the first quarter of 2013.
