The global music industry, especially the hip-hop scene, is highly competitive. It can be hard to break into the industry with so many incredibly talented artists around. It is even more challenging when you are a new artist. But this has not stopped DJ Smiles from making his mark and sharing his smile with hip-hop fans and the rest of the world.
Jibri Petroske, alias DJ Smiles, is a US-based DJ who has cemented his spot in the music scene a few years since his debut. DJ Smiles has received a lot of praise for his high-energy performances and skills on the decks, sharing the stage with notable names in the music industry. He has also recently done his first world tour.
DJ Smiles was on tour with celebrated Chicago rapper Polo G for his Hall of Fame Tour. During this tour, DJ Smile got to work with top artists like Lil poppa, sharing his love for music with his growing fan base.
According to DJ Smiles, this was one of the greatest experiences in his career as a DJ. He not only got to connect with his fans, but he was also able to learn from legends in the music industry. The Hall of Fame Tour has helped DJ Smiles grow his reach and introduce his vibe to the global hip-hop scene, now setting him apart from the competition.
He says his goal is to use this opportunity to redefine hip-hop as he shares his story to encourage other young artists. DJ Smiles developed a passion for music at a young age. He grew up listening to hip-hop legends like Nipsey Hussle, who he says really contributed to him deciding to pursue music professionally.
Just like Nipsey’s music helped DJ Smiles, he wants to use his talent to impact the world as he spreads love and positivity. As he does so, DJ Smiles is bringing hip-hop to his home state of Iowa and helping young artists to break into the space.
It is hard to get to the top in the music industry. Numerous challenges, from the fierce competition to the lack of funds to promote your music, make the journey seem almost impossible. But you can still get there. As DJ Smiles shows us through his journey, it depends on your mindset, passion, and determination.
DJ Smiles is originally from Iowa, where there is no major music scene. This made it hard for him to introduce his vibe to the world and even break into the US hip-hop scene. However, DJ Smiles didn’t give up.
He took a risk and moved to Atlanta, where he has continued to make music. The move gave DJ Smiles his much-needed exposure, and top artists started to notice his skills, landing him the chance to join Polo G on his Hall of Fame Tour.
As he continues to thrive, DJ Smiles is shaking up the hip-hop scene and changing the night-life industry in the US. He is spreading love and positivity through his music mixes, with his outgoing personality earning him the name “the smiling DJ.”
