Music 0 August 05, 2016 637 Kevin Keise

Houston’s own living legend, Slim Thug began this Hog Life series last year and he made big noise by dropping 3 volumes all in one year. Now, 10 months later, he’s back with the 4 installment, American King. The 19- track album includes his two released singles “King” & “IDKY,”  and only three features, Lil Boosie, Nikki Lactson and fellow Houstonian D.J X.O.

The song “IDKY” tackles issues of police brutality, racism and inequality. Recently, Sim Thug and other notable Houston rappers took a proactive step in hopes of making change in America.  They all met with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and all opened up accounts at Unity Bank, a black-owned bank in Houston’s Third Ward area.

Slim Thug has been doing this for almost two decades and is clearly recognized for his longevity. His release of Hog Life 4: American King is already top five on the iTunes charts, trailing only DJ Khaled – Major Key, Drake – Views, and G-Eazy – When It’s Dark Out.  See why Houston veteran Slim Thug latest this long in the rap game by checking out his new album.
