Slimelife Shawty made his reputation with emotional raw lyricism and conversational melodics, but sometimes he feels the need to lock in and lay down the law. Taking time to methodically prove why he’s the sh*t and you ain’t, Slime shares “In A Min,” his new video. Produced by Kid Hazel, known for his work with 21 Savage, “In A Min” is a sinister slice of street music, a minimalist banger with prominent percussion and a tolling bell that signifies doom for unlucky opps. Slimelife and guest rapper Nardo Wick (the man behind Billboard Top 20 hit “Who Want Smoke?”) do “diddy bops” on the beat with deadpan drawls: “I’ve been waiting for a n**** to play, why would I tuck my chain,” intones Nardo. In the video, Slime and Nardo take a coal black Jeep to the outskirts of the A as they mug for Jerry Production‘s camera. “In A Min” is the latest video from Better Living, Slime’s new album, which dropped Fall 2021 via Alamo Records.
Executive-produced by Slime’s mentor Lil Durk, Better Living is a deeply sincere document from one Atlanta’s most promising young rappers, offering head-knocking bangers and heartfelt ballads in equal measure. The new full-length is home to several popular singles that have been tearing up ATL in recent months including “Suit Me Up,” with a guest appearance from Lil Durk, recent videos “Freestyle” and “Only The Slimes,” and street-successful singles like the emotional “Where’s The Love,”the powerful “Slatt Bizness” (2.1 million YouTube views), the determined “Baby Boy” (2.6 million views), the triumphant “No Brakes” (2.98 million views). Featuring additional appearances from Future and Jackboy, Better Living is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
Better Living is the follow-up to 2020’s No Slime Left Behind, Slime’s Alamo Records debut. In late 2020, Slimelife shared the 42 Dugg-featuring remix to “Don’t Worry (Clappers),” his biggest hit to date with over 15 million streams across platforms. As he continued his run of popular street singles, Slimelife showed off his performance chops this summer, performing an electrifying set at Rolling Loud Miami in July. Slimelife recently finished up the “Back Outside Tour” with Lil Baby and Lil Durk, where he performed songs from Better Living and other hits like last year’s “All Summer.”
With a knack for emotional honesty that earned him co-signs from heavy-hitters like Young Thug, Lil Baby, and Lil Durk, who gifted him an Only The Family chain, Slimelife Shawty is ready to reach the next level. With Better Living, Slime proves that he has the chops and authenticity to be the next melodic rapper to explode out of the A.
