Alongside DJ Jamad (Afromentals/The Aphilliates), Locsmif entered the mixtape scene in 2004 with the highly-acclaimed Outskirts: The Unofficial Lost OutKast Remixes, an OutKast remix CD, consequently expanding Locsmif's fan base and laying the foundation for his widely received Divine Dezignz series. In early 2005, Locsmif's Divine Dezignz 1: Discovery, a collection of his original soul and hip-hop instrumentals, made its debut at iTunes and was featured on three consecutive iTunes Street Official Mixtapes. Adding upon the success of Discovery, Locsmif secured a national distribution deal with Fontana through High Wire Music to release Divine Dezignz 1.2: Re-Discovered. Guests on the record include Lil Sci (from Scienz Of Life and Sol Uprising), Stahhr
(from MF Doom / King Geedorah’s “Take Me To Your Leader” LP), and others.
