Camu Tao

Camu Tao (born Tero Smith, June 6, 1977 - May 25, 2008) was an American rapper and producer who was signed to the Definitive Jux label. He was a part of the duo S.A. Smash with fellow rapper Metro, a part of the rap group Weathermen, and the Central Services production team with El-P. Smith was also a member of the music collective Cardboard City... He was also part of Columbus, Ohio's MHz crew with Copywrite, RJD2, Jakki Tha MotaMouth & Tage Proto, and with Cage, half of The Nighthawks...

Smith died on May 25, 2008, after a two-year battle with lung cancer. At the time of his death, he was working on a song he produced for Cage's I Never Knew You EP as well as his first solo album for Definitive Jux.

Camu Tao's debut LP King of Hearts will see the light of day via DefJux/Fat Possum Records on August 17th (preorder it), and in celebration, Def Jux is offering a 2005 EP from Central Services (aka El-P + Camu) for FREE Download (get it above).

El-P has a new release of his own as well, the instrumental Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3 LP out on August 3rd. If you're a fan of El-P's signature blend of hip hop, IDM, and futurism, its a must.

I never listen to a unique rapper lyk Camu, especially his voice and his flow. I'm so sad to hear this of news about his late. Camu is my best Mc, for past 2years i've tryin to research about him but anyway may u rest in peace. My dream was to try and meet him so he could have my single album even though i'm not a signed artist but i just wanted to pass that. Guys if it possible i would lyf to visit america en see his home land my mobile no: 084 7418 187. I'm frm South Africa, Durban. My name is Flume. I luv his whole crew especially Megahertz members. Please keep on contact with me. At this moment this i'm writing my book.
