With Dr. Dre announcing plans to take a music hiatus and focus on his family this week, SOHH recently reached out to the producer's protege Slim the Mobster about holding down Aftermath Records.
Speaking on his bond with fellow Aftermath rapper Kendrick Lamar, Slim said he feels now is the time to prove himself to the world.
"Yeah, I mean, it feels good. We were all just in the studio the other day, me, Kendrick and Dre and the energy was just there," Slim told SOHH when asked about holding up the Aftermath flag. "Me and Kendrick know each other from previous situations. Where he grew up, my lived there. I know who he is, he knows who I am. We just made it into something big. This is what I work for. With me, I have to really prove my point because I've been signed so long but it feels like I've done nothing. When I say 'nothing,' I mean I haven't done anything that's been Slim-motivated. It's been in the lure of of Detox and Dr. Dre. I feel like right now, it's my time." (SOHH)
