Packaged in cover art that's somewhere between Norman Rockwell and Thomas Kincaid, Big Smo presents the Bringin' It Home EP, a follow-up to his 2014 debut LP, Kuntry Livin', which climbed into the Top 40 of Billboard's album chart. Titles like "Rednecks Got It Right" and "Meet Me in the Mud" are the rocking rebel yells one would expect from the reality TV star/hick-hop rapper, and while there's no filler to be found here, the track list is an EP's length, meaning the music might run out before the buzz finishes, so keep that debut album handy. ~ David Jeffries
