Bio

Born with West Indian roots, Kingpen Slim grew up in the Northwest Section of DC. During Slim's adolescent years, he straddled the fence of positive and negative forces, the streets and the love for music.

Eventually his freedom was stripped away; because his sentence he was unable to see the birth of his daughter. Kingpen Slim was able to make this experience a positive journey, where he honed his lyrical skills and was influenced by the many cultures that surrounded him.

“You’re not any less of a man if you walk away” was the best advice given to Kingpen which became the stepping stone towards a new route in life. All paths come with obstacles, so while on the path to victory God decided to teach Slim one more lesson on life…that lesson came in the form of bullets racing towards Slim’s body each with his name on it, 6 of’ them to be exact. 3 reached it’s target but none were fatal, thus another lesson learned for Kingpen Slim.

“I want to be remembered as an artist who paved the way for all the other rappers coming outta DC, something legendary. Someone the next group of artists can measure themselves against, a bar for them to reach for so to speak. I've got friends that are in prison, some who are on the streets and going through personal issues or whatever… opportunity at a better life,” states Kingpen Slim.

Kingpen Slim has definitely shown his drive and motivation in reaching the top. Kingpen Slim brings fourth something different to Hip Hop; he is the sound of this new Hip Hop era.
