Slayter’s name has been making rounds in the streets and hip-hop circles around the world. While building his buzz, the Uptown spitter caught the attention of Chicago producer Thelonoius Martin, who has produced tracks for Pro Era, Curren$Y, Vic Mensa, RetcH and countless others. Intrigued with Slayter’s gritty style and potential, Martin linked with the ’90s baby and two concocted a raw hip-hop product known as the Dirty Game EP.
On the six-track effort, one can tell that Slayter is likely heavily influenced by Queens vets Mobb Deep and Nas — but in a good way. However, Slayter’s style isn’t as a clone of anybody — it’s street — but 100% his own. More importantly, the newcomer isn’t recycling 90s rap swag. He brings his own new real life experiences to the microphone with a crafty style. And the phone calls from his homies behind the G-Wall only further establish Slay’s authenticity.
