Atlanta-based Slimelife Shawty is a buzzing artist who has been putting out hometown hits such as “Don’t Worry (Clappers),” “Dying 2 Hit’em,” and “No Brakes.” In 2018, Slimelife released his first single, “Say Something,” and hasn’t looked back. Since then, Slimelife has worked to the point that he now is working alongside Lil Durk and even performed at The Back Outside Tour at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which features artists such as Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Coi Leray, and more.
Last week, Slimelife Shawty dropped his latest album Better Living. The project boasts fourteen songs with features from Lil Durk, Future, Nardowick, and Jackboy. On Slimelife’s song “Old Times” with Future, he raps over an emotion-filled beat with an electric guitar and piano. In the song, Slimelife is rapping about his past experiences with an old love interest. Future reinforces this sentiment by keeping with the theme of the song.
The project’s opening track “Suit Me Up,” with Lil Durk, is a standout track from this album that shows off Slimelife Shawty’s talent and unlimited potential. Slimelife’s southern articulation singing on the song makes his vocals stand out on the track, and even Durk gets in on the action with a similar delivery style. In “Trenches,” you can hear Slimelife rap about overcoming and celebrating the struggles of growing up and surviving in his neighborhood. This piece is a must-listen on the album.
