D Smoke won two Grammy nominations for the Best New Artist, and Best Rap album after his first season appearance on Rhythm + Flow. Hosted by T.I., Cardi B and Chance the Rapper, D Smoke won the first season and nearly overnight we've seen him explode on the scene.
The West Coast Emcee has been taking it all in, and taking it in stride. While he may be calmly accepting praise, T.I., his mentor could not be more excited for his success.
"Love it when a plan comes together," he wrote. "@dsmoke7 you earned every moment you're enjoying right now. You worked hard and pushed yourself and your art above and beyond expectations. @iamcardib @chancetherapper & I saw something special in you and we've been proven right ever since. Love and Respect Lil Bro. Congratulations on your 2 Grammy nominations I know #Inglewood Proud AF!!!! Salute."
