What separates you from all the other rappers from your city?
I’m my own man I started something and stuck wit it I don’t really see any competition bcuz I respect the real ones in the town and they respect me.
So we read you a part of a few collectives and groups!! Please break down the origins regarding your group history in Hip Hop? How long have you been solo?

We started making music a long time ago lol back when they laughed at you for doing something different but shit we here now. And I’m not Solo I just dropped a solo tape bcuz ppl always ask for it and I had the bug.
In a few words, how would you describe your sound?
Damn I never really thought about my sound I guess it’s a mix of fire ass beats with me talking my shit its I’m giving incite it’s just Clever Conversational Shit and if you listen close I give you the recipe a few times.
How are you coping with this whole Covid 19 situation? Has it delayed any new music production by any chance?
I’m chillin I’m already a clean mf so we still washing our hands you feel me? Lol And the music didn’t slow down. I’m always on my own time with that, I just make it when I feel it.
Please breakdown the creative process of your new album “The Art of Procrastination 2“. And tell us a little about the album cover concept!
I used this project to show how people who wouldn’t necessarily meet from my city could be apart of a cohesive project. I used the sounds that interested me the most at the time to bring together people like Bendy Face, Lordy, breeze fiend, and neftali and more and show the versatility of the buffalo sound. As far as the album cover concept I just wanted to show where I came from to where I am the baby pictures and all the collage work was just to show my transformation Big shoutout to Kahlil Senpai on that my boy always bless me.
Your honest opinion, out of all the songs on the project, which is the one song you feel stands out the most!?
It would have to be Slow Down or Tony Hawk Pro Skater.
We have to ask, with all this social discourse and revolt, protesting and rioting, exposed police brutality toward blacks and BLM, how do you feel about this? We would love your perspective on the climate we are living in right now?
Slime at the end of the day mf tired of that same old regime, it’s time to scramble some shit up.
