She be killin’ em!
112 member Slim praises his crush on his new solo single “Killin’ Em Girl,” an ambient, choppy track from his upcoming solo LP due in 2016.
“Looking so good, got these other girls hatin’ / But you ain’t even mad cause you know you cold,” he croons to the woman in question; and it’s not complete unless a vocal sample of his former Bay Boy label mate (the late Biggie Smalls) is present, saying “Can I get wit cha, that’s the one I got to get.”
Slim’s forthcoming album will be his first on Shanachie Entertainment, and promises to deliver the classic R&B sound he is known for as well as a few special surprises. The Atlanta-based singer has been in the woodshed writing new material and drawing up some surprising influences. “I have been concentrating and listening to a lot of different music lately. I love country music,” confides Slim. “I do not want to make country music but I enjoy that the writers put a lot of time and effort into the lyrics. I believe ladies still want romance.” He continues, “When you listen to R&B music these days, it is definitely different from when I started out. There was a time when there was nothing wrong with a man expressing himself and when he did he was not considered soft. I am about protecting a legacy.” He concludes, “No matter what difficulties you are having, I want people to listen to the music and to be able to cast out all of their negativity and stress. I want my music to be medicine and healing.”
The lead vocalist and his group 112 just appeared as part of the Bad Boy Reunion on the 2015 BET Awards alongside the likes of Diddy, Lil Kim, Ma$e and Faith Evans.
March 18th, 2016 is when Slim will release his yet to be titled solo LP, the follow up to his 2008 CD Love’s Crazy, and his 2012 mixtape Crusin’ The City.
