This guy used to be a Marine, he has since been working hard to perfect his magic skills.  He is the self-proclaimed 'Ghetto Houdini', Smoothini.

He started doing bar magic, so he didn't have a lot of expensive props.  From what this video shows it doesn't seem like he really needs them.

He goes for the more close in your face magic and illusions that are truly mind blowing.

What do you think of this guy?
