Slim The Mobster has patiently waited for his time to shine and the spotlight is now shifting to the Aftermath artist.
Slim was already on his way to becoming one of the West Coast artists to check for, when a meeting with Dr. Dre changed the South Central MC’s career.
“I felt like the streets was all I had, then I met Dr. Dre,” Slim says “I actually went to his studio with a cd and asked if he would listen to my cd and in the process I left my number on a lottery ticket. Five minutes later he called me back. I’ve been with him ever since.”
Slim has helped pen more than 200 songs for Dre’s Detoxalbum.
Next up is his own street album titled War Music, which is scheduled to drop October 25.
“It’s called ‘War Music’ — war is the bad and music is the good,” Slim explains of the album’s title. “I feel like I’m in basic training right now. I’m getting ready to go onto something bigger.”
War Music will have features from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Prodigy and Kendrick Lamar. Production duties will be handled by Sha Money XL, Nottz, Bink and more.
