Slim Johnson is far from your typical rapper. Born in the southwest inner city of Dallas, Tx, Slim has a natural ability to bring words to life when coupled with quality production and keep the attention of whoever chooses to listen. In 2001 he was approached to be an Artist with Texas based Indy label Grifter Records, and soon began working along side Grammy Award Winning Producer Jah Born, who's responsible for Erykah Badu's "On and On". He recorded and released his first Single "Untouchable" which went on to be featured on the labels first release "Inside 635", a compilation featuring Artist from the label along with multiple releases to follow. During his tenure at Grifter he managed to open up for Swisha-house, Lil Flip, Lil Troy, and a host of other Artists. Eager to learn more about the business side of things, Slim took a backseat to music to attend Full Sail University and attain Bachelors in Music Business. With the Digital wave and technology taking over the music industry, instead of signing to another label he started his own imprint SInce82Entertainment with close friend Willean. After a brief hiatus from the music scene, Slim hit the streets with his first project "Dollaz n Sense" under his own imprint. He managed to Align himself with producer Zukan Bey (Jim Jones "Ballin") and Philly Artists Mansion TUTT, and Oschino Vasquez(State Property) for the street cut "Been Hustlin’ Been Gangsta", which was featured on his album as well as East Coast Block Starz Compilation project hosted by Dj Clint Sparks. After a few group efforts and attempts to build a stable of Artist within his label fell short, Slim decided to focus more on himself and soon began recording an EP entitled “Genesis". He released the singles "Lord Knows" and "Wake n Bake" via itunes and various other retail outlets in 2015. Both records have received placement on several mix-tapes and continue to receive raved reviews from his music consumers. Due to multiple requests for more music, Slim connected with Go Dj Supaken and began recording more music, which spawn the street single “Politics” Produced by NY producer U-Dub and a mix-tape entitled Politics As Usual. Politics caught the ear of promoter Lorenzo Zenteno & Premier Live, which in turn presented Slim with an opportunity to open up for Hip Hop recording artist Joyner Lucas in the Spring of 2016. With tracks such as “Choices”, “Lyrical Exercise” and the lead record “Politics”, Slim continued to display his lyrical prowess and stuck to the “dope beats and rhymes” style that Hip Hop is known for. His most recent release is the full length LP Against All Oddz, which is available on all digital platforms worldwide.
