Slim opens up with a definitive intro on his brand new EP Still Working. Confidently claiming his place in the scene and after supporting Headie One on tour, dropping consistent bangers and giving everyone quotables for Instagram. Slim’s name has been in all the right conversations and playlists over the last year. Now Still Working gives us a better look at the man behind the artist.
The 13 track project that features guest appearances from the M Huncho, K Trap, Headie One & Desperado is the rappers debut and official stamp in 2019.
Slim weaves through his life experiences and transitioning from his old life all throughout Still Working. Where the MC shines is through his relatability and visceral imagery, when he raps “came along way from the pedal bike puncture leaving me stranded”, many instantly remembered those times when that exact thing had happened to them, or when chain came loose at the worst time. It’s that type of rapping that pulls us and others in further when listening to Still Working.
The stories, the flexing, highs and lows and whilst we can appreciate him sharing the woes of of his dating life on No Secrets, we’re much more interested in the trap tales and introspection explored on songs like Change Up, Drive On My Own and Picture This.
Still Working opens strong and closes out the same way with the Outro as Slim signs off with the punchy tune. That feels a lot like the rapper slamming his flag down in the ground and letting everyone know that not only has he arrived after a long grind, he’s honestly just getting started.
So we’ll be looking out for new visuals and hopefully a live show from Slim following this release of this solid EP. It’s only March, so we’re sure the rapper has more music planned for the year ahead and we’ll be keeping an eye out for all of it.
