Playgyrl Slim Music Presents FU** Rap. - Hugo the boss promo


Playgyrl Slim
The 1st Lady Of Stockton - besser bekannt unter dem Namen Playgyrl Slim - im Interview über ihre bisherigen Projekte und alles was zur Zeit noch in der Mache ist. Networking and grinding, ihr kennt das Spiel...


How and when did you get in the rap game?

My big sis Lady J got me into the game, I started putting the pen to the notepad at 9 years old.


Are the early songs with R.F.P. still available anywere?

No, but some of the songs are gonna be on the " Best Of Playgyrl Slim" album.


In 2003 you released your first solo album "Who Am I" - how do you remember this time?

I was happy as fuck but at the same time I was like "damn it cost this much money to put an album out!"*laughs*


How do you rate the promotion networks in Stockton?

It's alright but there is more hate then love out here.


How did you get Young Ren from Doja Click in the studio to record a song with you?

That was easy. Ren is my folks he is the first nigga from 209 that gave me the title "Queen Of Stockton".


You also did a couple of guest appearances on different albums - could you just name any names?

I will shoot some titles out there real quick. I'm on UK artist Clarita's new single " Summertime", Bay Area bosses Danny Dee and Jack Track's " Hot Summer Nights" CD - they had Amy Winehouse, Mr. Fab, Ya Boy, Big Rich ... it was hella niggas on there. I got down on UK Mixtape Messiah DJ Ame's " UK-US Take Over Mixtape", it had Ciara and Lady Luck on there also. I been on a gang of YB Productions mixtapes, they work with all most everybody in the game. I got down on Bay Area Vets Mac & Ak's "Hood Legends" CD, L Capone and Lunnie's "The Cook Up" album, the "Earth Shadow Compilation" outta Florida, CB Dub's (from Oklahoma) "Casualties Of War". I been on a lot of albums and mixtapes, Ben. I'm always grinding.


You also put out a compilation entitled "Networking And Grinding" last year. Tell me about how it was to get everybody on there...

Pretty easy. Some people I just hit up and tell em to shoot me a track the others have to submit a track and if they slap then I put them on...


Your latest release is the single "A-1", what are you up to this time?

Keeping my foot on the gas with this single until the new album drop.


Your lyrics range from personal issues to straight up hardcore tracks to even funny tracks - which song took you the longest to write and why?

I'm a real artist I can write about anything some rappers talk about the same shit over and over and have no growth. They need to do one of two thangs: give up rapping or find a new ghost writer. *laughs*


From time to time I feel like you undersell yourself by picking almost vapid beats, but that's just my opinion. Where do you see need for improvement yourself?

I respect your opinion Ben, but I work with all kinds of producers. Dee that's my folks from Hallway, Ansane from Canada, Dejon Jae Heat from The Bay, Firemen from Atlanta and the list keeps going and all these producers have heat. I'm always open to work with other producers so all producers reading this get at me. And about the improvement, I think it's better promotion.


So, what can we expect next from Playgyrl Slim?

I'm getting ready to go on tour, I just wrap up the "We Hungry The Menu" Mixtape hosted by DJ Vlad. It got 18 tracks on it from artists from the west, east, midwest and the south - including Ric Nuke, L Capone, NME Wreckidz, D Redz, Iron Vest Ent., Blu Chez and more. That's dropping Jan 29th 09.

PlayGyrl Slim intent on proving women have a place in hip-hop

It's not easy to become a rap mogul, particularly when you're a woman in the male-dominated hip-hop world. The title must be earned through hard work, the ability to manage several projects at once and long hours spent promoting your music.

"Getting three or four hours of sleep is no joke," said aspiring mogul PlayGyrl Slim.

The 25-year-old Stockton native, born Christine Scroggins, recently released a mix CD, "2 Face," and recorded a music video. She also runs Bonafide Hustler Entertainment, which represents teen rapper A-Day; she organizes several local rap concerts, including the Northern Cali Freestyle Battle series; she's setting up a West Coast tour; and she's putting together a "209 Supa Group" featuring several local rappers.

In addition, PlayGyrl is preparing to perform for music industry executives at talent showcases in Los Angeles and Atlanta in August, and she's working on a DVD and a new album. She's intent on reaching the top of the rap game and proving that women have a place alongside men in the hip-hop industry.

"I just wanted to set myself apart and say, 'Females can do it, too,' " PlayGyrl said. "I'm trying to knock down doors."

She comes through the door with a tough, no-nonsense rap style. The lyrics on "2 Face" are West Coast gangsta mixed with a sense of female empowerment.

PlayGyrl said one of her biggest influences is Snoop Dogg, who started in gangsta rap. PlayGyrl began rapping when she was 9 years old after seeing her older sister use rap as an avenue for expression.

"People listen to what I have to say in music," PlayGyrl said.

She signed with an independent label and released her first album in 1999, only to go it on her own after become frustrated with how she was being promoted by the label. Her second album, "Who Am I," was released on her own label, Bonafide Hustler Entertainment, in 2003.

PlayGyrl said she sees herself working behind the scenes to promote Stockton music in the future.

"There's just so much potential out here," she said. "I'm giving people a chance to be seen and heard."

It’s true—there hasn’t been a heavy hip-hop female artist coming
out of the west coast like Playgyrl Slim.

It all started at the age of nine, performing in front of large crowds, capturing the interest of local promoters.

As Slim became older, she became wiser towards the game. Slim went on working extremely hard towards her entertainment career. She later collaborated and performed with Pimp -A -Lot as the group, R.F.P., achieving underground success.
Her success gave her the rapport that helped her launch the youth group, Troublesome.


This twenty-four year old with the appealing name is a native of
Stockton, California, and putting it on the map well. With numerous features under her belt, a mixtape and a niche for writing, she has a diverse style compared to other female rappers and ready to take the rap industry by storm. She has
definitely been keeping busy. All who know her can agree....She is one of the hardest working women in the entertainment field.
