Fresh from the EP Shake Back, Slim 400’s collaborative release with Steelz and Sada Baby offers a classic hip hop anthem – one with a refreshing edge of alternative creativity and unwavering personality.
Setting the scene throughout, showcasing a track loaded with detail and playing out like a short film, the single tips its hat to the bigger hip hop releases of the nineties – the legendary names, those who told stories, made every track a performance complete with sketches and bits throughout.
Slim 400 embraces the soundscape to an impressive degree, and it’s a likeable beat in itself, that bass-line adds immediate character and the artists’s featured undoubtedly follow on with more of that same confidence and identity.
Everything from Slim’s voice to the sound design to the lyrics and delivery helps make this a stand out hip hop release for 2020. The tone and the rhythm too, it all brings something fresh, unlike the vast majority of singles making up the scene of late.
As an introduction to the artist, Brackin Thru The Ghetto more than leaves its mark. Slim 400 is a Compton rapper rightfully showing no intention whatsoever to slow down, and his music speaks volumes on behalf of that.
