Stacking street-savvy bars with a gravelly growl, Slayter proudly stands up for his NYC neighborhood. Continuing his already-prolific 2020 with hard-as-nails new music, Slayter shares “Louis V Umbrella”, his new video single. Boasting eerie pianos fit for a slasher film, “Louis V Umbrella” provides an excellent canvas for Slayter and guest rapper Sada Baby to get creative with their smack talk: “Real whoop business, who wit it?/Shoot him in the head and make him feel his true feelings/Who did it? You better not rat, ay/I beat a n**** dead with a bat, ay,” says Sada Baby. With his controlled delivery, Slayter provides an excellent foil for Skuba’s manic antics, rhyming matter of factly about his expansive bankroll: “Coulda bought a car, but I spent that sh*t on a Rollie/N****s lucky they ain’t got a chance to meet the old me.” In the video, Slayter and Sada gather a crew and post up in several NYC locations, counting bands, flashing jewels, and imitating Sada Baby’s dance moves. “Louis V Umbrella” is the first single from World Got Me Fucked Up Vol. 1, Slayter’s upcoming mixtape, coming soon via Cinematic Music Group.
Born in Puerto Rico and raised in Manhattan’s Dyckman neighborhood, Slayter spent the past few years fine-tuning his unique take on traditional NYC rap. Discovered by Cinematic Music Group CEO Jonny Shipes, Slayter quickly rose through the ranks of his city’s underground, building a reputation for his detailed, surreal street stories. Last summer, the rapper earned attention from Complex and XXL for his Cold At Night EP, which featured appearances from G Herbo and Lil Gotit, and in the fall, Slayter supported Maxo Kream on a 23-date nationwide tour. Earlier this year, Slayter treated the streets to the Dirty Water EP, a 7-track effort that boasted production from Sango and Thelonius Martin, and guest spots from Smoke DZA, Xanman and Q Da Fool.
