Smith noticed Lucas’ video on Instagram and took to the social media platform to acknowledge Lucas and say that he was “humbled” by the video.

“Joyner Lucas, yo, that joint is crazy! Dude, I am humbled and honored. One of the lines you say in there, you inspire people and you don’t even know it,” Smith said.

“It has been my intention from day one to just go into the world and put out positive energy and to be able to use my creation to inspire, elevate, and inspire. I just love what you’ve done. It’s creative. Brother, again, I’m humbled and I’d love to meet you one day.” Check out the video below.
