POPTART PETE / JAMAL SMITH

I found out something the other day that made me pretty happy.  Jamal Smith, the skateboarder known for absolutely destroying quarter pipes, dancing, and of course eating cereal makes beats under the Soundcloud alias Poptart Pete.  The best part is that Jamal Smith’s foray into the musical world is no Terry Kennedy tomfoolery, but actually very successful.  Poptart Pete’s sample-based beats are nicely textured with with drums that you can’t help but bob your head to and often include mellow organ or string samples.  I already thought that Jamal Smith was awesome in a bunch of different ways, so its nice to be able to just tack on musical talent to the list.  Stream two tracks below and link to his Soundcloud page below that.
