'Rhythm + Flow' Winner D Smoke Announces First EP One Day After Winning Netflix Rap Competition: How to Listen

Just one day after winning the first season of Netflix's hip-hop competition series Rhythm + Flow, rapper D Smoke released his first official project, an extended play album named after his hometown high school, Inglewood High. The California native announced the compilation in an Instagram post on Thursday.

"Coming fresh off the first season of @rhythymandflownetflix, we now present to you INGLEWOOD HIGH the EP, now available on all streaming platforms. This is the appetizer we just getting started!!!" Smoke wrote alongside a photo of the EP's cover.

The seven-track project consists of new work, which listeners can hear on all streaming platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud. As for the original songs Smoke performed on the Netflix show, fans can listen to those—as well as singles created by his fellow contestants—on the Rhythm + Flow playlist that's available on Spotify.

On Wednesday, Smoke was deemed the winner of Netflix's first-ever music competition series in the latest batch of episodes to be released. Following a riveting final live performance of his socially conscious single "The Last Supper," judges T.I., Cardi B and Chance the Rapper named Smoke the champion, awarding him the grand prize of $250,000—with no strings attached—and the chance to perform on Spotify's RapCaviar Live concert stage in Miami on Thursday.

The 33-year-old beat out three other top contestants: Flawless Real Talk, Londynn B and Troyman.

It's not surprising Smoke is releasing new music so soon. Although the show came to Netflix in early October, the teacher-turned-rapper wrapped his appearance on the series back in March.

Noting the experience has been overwhelming and exciting, Smoke said in an interview with TV Guide that he got straight to work in the studio following his big win, so there's even more music in the pipeline.

"Since I won, I've been spending time with family. I did some traveling—I went to Atlanta. And, of course, I've been doing a lot of music. I shot three music videos. Two projects were already in the works prior to the show, and another completely new one is coming," he said. A 15-song mixtape is also underway following Inglewood High's release, he added.

As for that massive pot of money he won, Smoke said he was planning to invest it—not only in his career as a rapper but in his Inglewood community as well.

"I'm going to give out a couple scholarships to young people in the community through events where we can share information about what programs are available to the kids. And then of course kids, and then, of course, I'm going to be investing in my craft," he said. "I also will buy a place in Inglewood."

Newsweek asked Smoke's reps for comment but did not hear back before publication.
