Dr. Dre's latest artist Slim The Mobster announced the official release of the first single from his upcoming street album today (September 7th).
Slim released the video for his new song “Gun Play,” which is taken from his upcoming Aftermath street album War Music.
The album was produced by Sha Money XL and Vikaden, while DJ Skee and DJ WhooKid will host War Music, which is due in stores this fall.
Slim the Mobster signed with Dr. Dre, shortly after he dropped a demo off at the legendary producer's Los Angeles area studio, with his number scrawled on the back of a lottery ticket.
Dr. Dre was impressed and called him back to the studio to begin working on material.
To date, Slim the Mobster has worked on over 200 songs for Dr. Dre's highly anticipated release Detox.
“I talked for a few minutes with Dre and he said if I was patient and had some time, he wanted to work with me. It’s been on since then," Slim the Mobster explained.
As for his own street album, War Music will feature verses from his mentor, Dr. Dre, as well as Snoop Dogg and Sly.
“I been hustlin’ since I was 13-years-old, knee-deep in the streets and whatever came with it, came with it," Slim explained, to let fans know what to expect on War Music.
"I never want to portray somethin' that I'm not," Slim continued. "That's why, when you listen to my music, you'll hear me talkin' about Crippin' and gangbangin' 'cause that's part of my past.”
Nottz, Bink, Seige, Monstracity, N.U.M, Jake One, Sid Roams, Sha Money Xl, and Keykat Productions also contributed production to War Music.
