Slim Thug is a towering MC who made a name for himself standing above a crowded fray of southern rappers. With his big, bass-filled southern twang and a versatile rhyming style, Slim Thug has become the city's most preeminent lyrical export. He first made his mark as a mixtape star, dropping rhymes over hot hip-hop instrumentals, honing his verbal lyricism and street tales over whatever style of beat was thrown his way. The mixtapes were a form of boot camp for Slim, he says. "You got all these types of beats and you gotta come with one flow after another. It makes you a better rapper." He recently released his major label debut Already Platinum on Geffen which features production work from the Neptunes and Jazzy Pha.
