D.C.-area singer and rapper Visto is a conoisseur of chill: He’s got the drapey garments, chunky jewelry and overall aura of an erotic yogi. His music tends to follow suit; it’s often sleek and watery, with no shortage of come-ons (some subtle, like last month’s “What You Need“; others not, like 2013’s “How That Pxssy Taste“). But he’s always been interested in hooks, and several of his songs come across as a manifesto for his mellow lifestyle.
“Oh, we’re going to smo-oh-oke it down,” he coos on the track, summoning nearby ladies to his zone of chillaxation. “Won’t you bring your friends around?”
There’s nothing hard-hitting about “Smoke It Down”: It’s straight-up cookout tuneage, except the smoke it’s giving off isn’t coming from a charcoal grill. (Also: I may have to retroactively add it to Bandwidth’s new playlist of D.C. summer songs.)
