Smokin' Suckaz wit Logic is a hip-hop band from New York City.

Biography[edit]

The multi-ethnic band was formed in 1990 and consisted of G "Suave" a rapper of Puerto Rican descent (who earlier had appeared on VHS entitled Ravenswood Nights freestyling over a beatbox with another rapper called King Sek), Darren "D-Smooth" Lolk (guitar), Money Mike (bass), Curtis "Mr." Watts (drums, keyboards, background vocals), Spank Dog (programming, scratches, background vocals), and Peter "Ajoe" Jorge (programming, background vocals). While still a group, they opened for Ziggy Marley and KRS-One. They released a single album, Playing' Foolz on the Epic Records label. The group's influences included hip-hop, alternative, funk, reggae, jazz, and metal.

Due to various creative differences within the group and many frustrations over their musical style, the band disbanded in 1994. Most of the members went on to pursue solo careers. Mr. Watts became a Producer and a solo artist, Suave became a Christian Rapper named "Rodan Tha Thinker" in a band called True 2 Life, D-Smooth went on to play Pete Townshend in The Who Show (A The Who Tribute band) and contribute to other punk and dub influenced rock bands, Money Mike became a president of an air travel company called Airtech and the President of 420tours, the official tour operator and producer of the High Times Cannabis Cup; he also owned and operated High Times Records and had a successful distribution arrangement with EMI Caroline. He now runs Bambu Hostel in David, Panama, an international backpackers' hostel. Ajoe continued to be a producer and would later produce albums for the likes of Big Daddy Kane and Sporty Thievz.
