Artist of the Week: Slim Thug


Slim Thug will drop his sophomore solo studio album 'Boss of All Bosses' on March 24, listing Akon, UGK and Scarface among others as featured guests.

Slim Thug, who gained mainstream attention for his contribution to Mike Jones' 2005 song "Still Tippin'", has finished his recording sessions for his second solo studio album "Boss of All Bosses". He will drop the new effort in U.S. stores on March 24.

Before "Boss of All Bosses" hits the market, a listening party has been exclusively held by MySpace earlier this month. And as of press time, several tracks in the new album, including the first single "I Run", can be streamed for free on his MySpace.

In an interview with DJ Booth, Slim shares on what his new work is all about. "I kinda went back to my roots, as far as the production and the other artists I worked with. I really just made [H-Town anthems]. I want to bring the city back," he says.

"I really tried to cover all our bases, though. I worked with almost everybody in the city," Slim continues explaining. "I've got one song called, 'Welcome to H-Town'. I've got everybody in the city: new artists, old artists, all kinds of people. I got to work with legends like Scarface and UGK. So it's good, man."

In addition to joining forces with Scarface and UGK in the new album, Slim has also teamed up with big Hip-Hop/R&B singers such as Mannie Fresh, Chamillionaire, Mike Jones and Akon. Meanwhile, rapper Jim Jonsin and DJ/music producer StreetRunner are among those tapped to produce the effort.

On the particular day when "Boss of All Bosses" is dropped, Slim Thug will be making live appearances at "106 & Park" in New York and at Club Level in Houston, Texas. He will also attend a signing event on March 26 in Arlington. More details on his upcoming shows can be checked on his MySpace.
