Slim Jesus took the rap world by storm last week when his video for “Drill Time” was discovered by the blogosphere.
In the base-laden track he doesn’t hesitate to spit lines like “I pull up on your block at night, wearing all black and let that 40 bang.”
But in a recent interview with VladTV, Mr. Jesus reveals that he doesn’t actually participate in street antics that much, saying “I’m not out here catching bodies and sh-t, obviously. Like, I’m f-cking smart,” he tells DJ Vlad. “I realize that if you got an opportunity to get out of a spot, you shouldn’t, you know, be f-cking around and catching bodies and sh-t.”
But he makes it known that he has friends who are about that life, saying,”For the most part on the street s***, like, I got homies that are in that sh-t, and I know people who are and people around me,” he states.
He also mentions that his hometown of Hamilton, Ohio, which is only a few hours south of Chicago, used to be known as “little Chicago” due to the large influx of Windy City gangsters who used to live there day. He told Vlad that he has no criminal record and has never even been shot at.
Slim knows he has a chance to become a legitimate rapper, not be a one-hit wonder and is ready to prove himself
“I make music,” he said. “Granted, I hang out with people, but that doesn’t mean that I’m out here doing some shit tryna ruin what I got going.”
