An imprint of 300 Entertainment, Slime Language is Young Stoner Life’s debut compilation project.

Wheezy, Keyyz, K Bangerz, Kacey Khaliel, DY, Charlie Handsome, Smoke, Matt Mattazik, Super, Billboard Hitmakers, and Turbo all bless Slime Language with their forward-thinking production.
Each artist brings an authentic energy to their respective track with animated personalities and masterful ad-libs – this is the fantasy-football project of rap that the fans have been waiting for (and it’s finally here). Already hailed as a melodic rap veteran, Young Thug entangles himself with the extraordinary sounds of each act. Slime Language undeniably embodies Thug’s sonic influence within each artist.
Slime Language‘s stand out track is “Dirty Shoes” featuring Gunna. Gunna’s experimental cadence offers a contagious bounce, which further proves why he has become rap’s most important newcomers. The project then switches to “It’s A Slime” featuring Lil Uzi Vert. The Grammy-nominated artist and Young Thug’s entertaining friendship offers a natural buoyancy that the fans are always looking forward to hear. Finally, “January 1st” featuring Jacquees and Trapboy Freddy, serves up a black-belt approach to melodic arrangement.
Duke, HiDoraah, Dolly, Lil Keed, Tracy T, Strick, Karlae, and Nechie’s remarkable distinctiveness only proves why Young Stoner Life Records has the most idiosyncratic rosters in music. Slime Language is a powerful concoction of artistry that solidifies Young Thug as one of music’s most efficacious artists and dynamic label executives.

Today platinum-certified Toronto rapper and producer NAV shares the music video for “Champion” feat. Travis Scott. Watch it HERE. The song is the latest single from his full-length debut album, Reckless [XO/Republic Records]. Get it HERE.
Taking over an oceanside estate, NAV filmed the video in Hawaii during the top secret sessions for Scott’s new album, ASTROWORLD, on which he’s also featured. Directed by XO’s very own Amir “Cash XO” Esmailian, the video co-stars Atlanta rapper Gunna, rising star Sheck Wes as well as Don Toliver, the latest artist to join Scott’s Cactus Jack Records.
NAV’s quiet infiltration of pop culture continues with “Champion.” It follows up the success of a string of now RIAA-certified platinum hits, including “Myself,”“Some Way” [feat. The Weeknd], and “Wanted You” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert].
NAV has quietly arrived as one of rap’s most innovative and infectious voices. Early last year he joined forces with powerhouse producer Metro Boomin for the collaborative album, Perfect Timing. Meanwhile, 2016 saw him not only co-produce the GRAMMY Award-nominated “Back To Back” for Drake, but he also featured on and produced the platinum-selling “Beibs in the trap” for Travi$ Scott’s blockbuster Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. A streaming phenomenon, he regularly averages over 7.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify making him one of the most-listened-to artists worldwide. In addition to selling out solo shows coast to coast, he also joined The Weeknd for The Starboy Tour. Over the last year he’s garnered production credits on tracks with Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and most recently The Carters [Jay-Z & Beyonce]. This tastemaker favorite has also received praise from Rolling Stone, Complex, Billboard, and The Fader.
The track delivers swift-melodic rap before transitioning into a pleading chorus which BEGS its listeners to not make promises that, truly, can’t be kept…pretty relatable, huh?
Staying true to his murky underground sound, “Need U” is FXXXXY’s first summer release, and you can listen to it by clicking here.
“‘Need U’ is a song that means a lot to me because it’s mostly based on a true situation. As soon as I did the beat I knew it was gonna be a way for me to vent and then Gunna came throughand completed the version for it,” says FXXXXY.
The Dallas-based rapper has also had previous music success from EPs such as Cartel Shawty and Flawed Up Shawty. This also includes his singles, “Lip Service 6” and the Zane Lowe-premiered “Beep Beep.”
With meticulous production, memorable books, and agile flows, the young music artist ahs continued to showcase his talent as both an emcee and producer.
FXXXXY currently resides in Los Angeles where he continues to record develop his sound–so stay tuned in to this star as more magic comes to our ears.
“Do You Understand” will surely keep listeners vibing all summer. Take a listen below and look out for Shy Glizzy’sAin’t For Everybody project due out this summer.
