With the crowd of people who halfheartedly attempt to pursue a career in the Hip-Hop industry it is often difficult to tell the imposters from the real thing. But in spite of the uncertainty there is one real artist who in a single year made moves in the industry like no other. Andrew Gardner or as his adoring fans would call him, Smiles Official, is a young and talented aspiring artist who uses witty wordplay and clever rhetoric to write the music that has all the ladies of South Florida going crazy.
Official was born at Jackson Memorial Hospital, on August 11, 1989 to parents Boyd and Marie Gardner. Embracing his rich Jamaican background, Official has always been a lover of both music and food with lots of soul. In junction with his deeply embedded cultural roots, Smiles also accredits a large part of his success today to the city that raised him, Cutler Ridge. Not only was he able to launch his rap career in Cutler Ridge but he was also recognized by his city for being a force on the football field and a bullet on the track. Ripe with raw talent, Smiles Official embodied all that is carpe diem, and he has been seizing every moment since…you already know Smiles Official is as real as they come.
