He continued to hone his skills and became one of the best krump dancers in the world and became part of the world-renowned Tommy the Clown crew performing to sold out crowds worldwide.

Smart currently resides in the greater Los Angeles area and in spare time enjoys boxing/MMA, all forms of outdoor recreational activities including wakeboarding, snowboarding and is an avid motorcycle and car enthusiast.
