Slimelife Shawty is becoming a master at baring his soul through his music. Proving his ability to create heartfelt trap tracks once again, Slimelife shares “Baby Boy,” his new video single.
With gripping lyrics and raw emotion in his voice, the Atlanta native confronts his demons while still acknowledging everything he has accomplished against all odds: “I know I’m in hell / Everywhere they say the slime couldn’t go, you know I went there.” The young rapper injects every ounce of his pain into his lyrics as he melodically flows on the ATL Jacob-produced beat.
Directed by ShotByWolf, the video depicts Slimelife counting his riches and standing alone in a parking lot and a barren apartment stairwell as he anxiously reflects on the life struggles that continue to fuel his hustle and undeniable talent.
Gearing up for the release of his upcoming project Better Livin, Slimelife Shawty has been consistently rising in the ranks of the rap game with collaborations like his “Clappers” remix with 42 Dugg and “Dying 2 Hit Em” with Lil Durk. Last year, the Alamo Records signee released No Slime Left Behind, a full-length project, and made noise with his street hit “All Summer.”
