Houston MC, Slihmm, is back with yet another free verse. Known for his lyrical prowess, the young artist releases his music in minute long pieces rather than full records. Slihmm and Chance Schreiber are building some nice chemistry together, the sampled production allows for Slihmm to show off a variety of flows throughout the verse. This is a solid track from Slihmm, however, we can’t help but want more from the kid. Hopefully there’s a full length project in the future, until then we’ll continue to keep an eye on the young MC.
Outside of Travi$ Scott, the city of Houston has been pretty quiet as of late. One artist who is trying to change that is Slihmm, a young MC with a versatile bag of flows and a deep penchant for lyricism. Unlike the swangin, screwed up records from a decade ago, Slihmm attacks instrumentals using his pen as a sword. “Nightly’s” laid back piano allows for him to show off his rhymes, but one can’t help feeling like the record ends before it is able to blossom. A solid effort, we’d like to see a few fully crafted records from the kid, check out “Nightly” above.
The kid Slihmm recently sent over a new track titled “Scared.” The Houston MC has been releasing a steady trickle of snippets over the last year, each one providing a step forward from the last. Produced by Electic Cher, the somber production fits Slihmm’s style like a glove, his introspective rhymes are enhanced by the instrumentals eeriness. These short tracks are really dope, but we’re hoping to hear a little more from Slihmm in the near future. Check out “Scared above and make sure to stay tuned for more from the Houston artist.
Houston MC Slihmm sent us his latest track a little over a week ago and it’s pretty dope. Produced by Liverpool’s own Brother Moon, the record flies by at just over a minutes length. Slihmm wastes little time attacking the instrumental with complex flows from the start. “Grace” is yet another taste of what the young artist can do, hardly a full song, but an exercise in pure lyricism. Dark and gritty, Slihmm continues to carve his own sound into Houston’s increasingly diverse musical landscape. Check out “Grace” above and be on the look out for more from Slihmm.
Houston MC, Slihmm, recently dropped a new track titled “Basement” for all of our listening pleasure. The young spitter clearly has a knack for complex rhyme schemes accentuating his bars with a cool delivery. Produced by Brothermoon, the laid back track breezes by at a length under 1 minute. Check out Slihmm’s track “Basement” above and stay tuned for more.
A little late with this one, but Houston spitter Slihmm recently sent us a new track titled, “I Can’t Rap About Love”. Produced by Brotherman, the heavy, boom bap inspired instrumental is reminiscent of those early 90s years on the East Coast. Slihmm’s voice is distinct on the record and his story keeps the listener in tune, Noosance holds his own with a quality verse as well. Short and sweet, I’m definitely interested to hear more from the Houston MC; check out “I Can’t Rap About Love” above.
Houston artist Slihmm recently sent over his newest effort in “Tethys”. Produced by Luke Bonds, the tracks piano heavy sample is eerie to say the least, with a crawling drum line and creeping bass. Slihmm goes in on the track with a drunken flow that seems to roll out of his mouth. About a month ago, he dropped a record with St. Paul’s own Psymun entitled “Black”. Both tracks are below, give them both a listen and keep an eye out for more from Slihmm.
