Agent Smith is an emcee/dj/producer/audio cubist from San Diego, California. His music has a sort of cinematic feel that usually is followed by phrases such as “I could hear this in a movie,” or “It’s cool but you can’t dance to it”. His lyrics range from free verse poetry, spoken word, abstract and slant-rhymed personal narratives, to locked-on, creative punch lines. Usually focusing on self-examination, explorations of his own mind and the minds of others, and social commentary, Agent Smith attempts to answer his own “why’s” and “how’s” that he encounters in his daily life. He credits any talent he displays to the Holy Spirit and his main goal is to repay the gift by using it well.
Although his lyrics are quite frequently emotional, he shuns the label of "emo-rap" saying it is a convenient way for journalists and critics to keep black and white seperate. Hip Hop is Hip Hop and is simply multi-faceted. He's not gonna lie...he's referring to himself in third person...

if you were to lock a jazz band and a couple of robots up in a dark room somewhere in india with nothing but a zippo and a bunch of old records, kept them there for a few years, and then took a picture of them and dropped the picture in a puddle of melted ice and then framed it.
