The Music

SmartBlackKid is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, Hakhi Alakhun. Originally from Buffalo, NY, SmartBlackKid is the moniker that keeps Hakhi in tune with his inner child. After years of lending his talents in support and touring the world with artists, such as Bullyfoot Massive (2007-09), and The Lo Frequency (2008-12), he decided to put out his own creations as SBK and released 10 albums in the span of 10 months (4/12-1/13) playing virtually all instruments… someone is in the running for hardest working man in the music business!  Here's “Free Thought” from his forthcoming best of album due later this year with a series of videos he is currently editing to go along with it. -Cedar & Soil Smart Black Kid: Facebook | Twitter | Soundcloud | Bandcamp
