Meet Slum Beautiful
Rising femcee, Slum Beautiful is here to add to hip-hop culture with her originality and authenticity. Check this OUT!!
What’s the significance of your name?
Slum beautiful is an oxymoron descriptive of something good coming out of something “deemed” bad. Equivalent to a rose from concrete, a diamond from coal, and fertilizer from shit, light sometimes shines from darker places. I’m rather unorthodox. I will not fit into any box, so I felt the name fit.
What city do you hail from?
I’m originally from DC (DMV). I moved to Georgia as a young teenager, so Atlanta is home.
How are you going to approach the game as an artist?
Authentically, genuinely and organically. That’s the only way I’m able to approach or attempt anything. I think everything under the sun has been done…The only thing I have that other ppl don’t is “me” ….So I’m approaching this game “slum beautifully” lol
Who are some of the artists and producers you’ve worked with for your new music?
I honestly have some dope ass producers…Dj black charm on “RUN DAT BAG”…I got Prodbydin on “the process”…I got bobby p aka big whit on several tracks. Each of them is on next-level shit in their rights.
Whom would you say are your greatest influences in music today?
Betty Davis, James Brown, Diana Ross, Chuck Brown, Mc Lyte, Lauryn Hill Foxy Brown…influences, I Could Go On All Day
What are you bringing new to the game for the culture?
Hopefully, I can bring back true femcee lyricist integrity and make it new again.
Explain your new single and what’s your current project?
The new single is called “Run Dat Bag”. It is the first single off the upcoming album. We can call it untitled for now because I’m guarding the prospective title with my lil life right now…Lol
So with the climate of today’s artists using ghostwriters, would you use any, and have you done any, for any artists out there now?
I have not used ghostwriters. I have a big head, big brain, big mouth so I got a lot to say…Lol…I haven’t finished speaking my peace yet, but I’m available for any artists in need.
Where can fans and followers find everything about you on social media?
Follow her on all her platforms to keep up with her work! We surely will because she’s the true definition of DirtySouthHipHop!
