Carrier is breaking new ground in the music industry. Formerly known as "Smoovie Baby", he has reinvented himself and taken his sound to new heights. He was born in San Francisco, CA and raised in Fairfield, a Solano County suburb north of Vallejo. Bay Area rap star Sage the Gemini is from the same town, and the two of them started collaborating early on under the collective Black Money Music Group. (Sage eventually joined IAMSU's music collective, HBK Gang, and the group's influence was palpable in Carrier's music as Smoovie Baby). With himself, IAMSU!, Sage, and P-Lo -- another prominent HBK Gang rapper and producer -- handling much of his production, Smoovie Baby's early work consisted mostly of hyphy-influenced club bangers. These made for fun party music, but they weren't quite distinct enough to set him apart from the other members of the collective. Still, he rose to considerable regional acclaim, and even nabbed a coveted spot on the rap blog Thizzler.com's then-annual Bay Area Freshman list in 2012 (Thizzler discontinued its Freshman list in 2014). Since then, he has performed twice at the annual SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX, (2014 & 2015). Carrier has also collaborated with prominent artists such as IAMSU!, Kool John, YMTK, Rexx Life Raj, Show Banga and Caleborate, as well as LA- based producer D-Nyc3 of the League of Starz (Tyga's "Faded" feat. Lil Wayne). After changing his stage name, Carrier dropped Let That Marinate in November 2015, a bass-heavy, danceable mixtape, to introduce the world to his new artistic identity. In April 2016, he released the project There's Been A Change of Plans, with more confessional, stream-of consciousness raps that touch on a variety of autobiographical subjects.
