I'm an independent artist based out of Atlanta Georgia. Originally from South Carolina, partially raised in New York City. Around the age of 16 I started off writing poetry, made beats and those poems formed into lyrics to the beats i made. I didn't begin recording music until I got to college at the age of 18. I've been making music ever since.
Why Hip hop?
Music/Hip hop chose me. Becoming a hip hop artist wasn't something I wanted to do. It was the path God led me to.
American vs other countries Hip hop. What’s the difference?
No difference. Music is music. No matter genre, where you’re from. Music is how you express yourself so it doesn't matter to me.
Do you listen to Mzansi Hip hop? If yes, who do you think runs South African Hip hop?
Honestly I can't say I listen to S. African hip hop, but I have heard a few songs before. I love the vibe.
What makes Slim Vegas different from other Hip hop stars?
What makes me different is that everyone has a story to tell and no one’s story is the same. Only Slim Vegas can tell the Slim Vegas story.
Great guns you worked with on your work? Let’s hear…
Over the years I've worked with many great producers and artist but I have a team that I continue to work with. Check out Kash wita K, Look Alive, and Windsor Jones. Just to name a few. They are some dope up and coming artist.
