From gold to platinum status in hip-hop and southern gangsta rap, Smoke D’s music and lyrics are known throughout the world. A two-time, convicted felon and an original member of (UGK) Underground Kings, of Port Arthur, Texas. Smoke’s life truths are unapologetic, while being validated and confirmed by others he met along his tumultuous journey and musical career. In 1994, after the release of the smash hit single “Front Back & Side to Side” Smoke received two-20 year sentences in, two different states, for manslaughter and drug trafficking. 
Prison was a necessity, for Smoke’s transformation, in order to emerge as a profoundly conscious man of mentorship and ministry. Smoke’s story illustrates the dramatic cause and effect of a culture of unsettled anger and violence. Happy Death Day reveals his deepest and darkest days of destruction and his plight toward redemption and another chance. Prison became God’s place to foster growth, “the experiences I went through in prison brought me to a higher level of understanding purposes.” Happy Death Day is a book that provides surprising spiritual ammunition to fight the unseen war that uses silent spiritual weapons. Happy Death Day is soul and mind nutrition for the reader and every hip-hop and southern gangsta rap lover. Happy Death Day looks at the motivation and reality behind Smoke’s lyrics, music, and facts on incarceration.
“My life was at violent point that I often thought of death. Now I see God in this life with the time I have left. My soul’s main objective and overall goal is to bring life and light to a Dark World, that’s cold.”
“Whether you have been living 15 days to 500 years, no man can think any high than his conscious level” says Smoke D. “In this world always give the best of yourself, because dying isn’t hard but living is a full time job remembering this one thing: it’s not what you take with you, but what you leave behind.”
Happy Death Day reveals the intimate life and parts of Smoke D that needed to die in order to be renewed, restored, and beginning the process of his road. 
It takes allot for people to bare their soul releasing the pain while sorting through to discover the gems.   ~Unknown
