EARLY LIFE

John Lee Smith, better known as Big Smo was born in San Diego, California to mother Mary Jane Smith and U.S Navy Veteran Carl Avery Smith. His older brother was always called “Sma” so people started calling him “Smo” and the name stuck. His father passed away when he was young and had a major impact on Smo’s life. He began to take an interest in music at a young age and learned to play piano and the drums, later joining the drum line and writing poetry in high school. Growing up he was exposed to both country and rural music and decided he wanted to combine both genres and create his own country rap, often referred to as hick-hop. 


MUSIC CAREER

Soon after high school, John Lee Smith began to learn to DJ and began to write and collaborate with Ray Riddle, better known as Orig the DJ. His first major hit, Kickin’ it, received over 5 million hits on Youtube and gained the attention of the Senior Vice President of Warner Bros. Smo soon after signed with Warner Bros and released his hit album Kuntry Livin’ in 2014. Since this album, Smo has continued to release music, including two more albums with Warner Bros. We the People and Special Reserve. Smo has made several reality TV appearances including television series Big Smo, a program showing his life on his family’s farm.
