Video: Slimelife Shawty – “Homicide”
The Alamo Records Signee Kicks It in Atlanta With His Homies in the Video for this Loyalty Anthem
“Atlanta rapper Slimelife Shawty has been building his catalog over the last couple of years, earning attention from Young Thug, Lil Durk, Lil Baby, and more. Associating himself with several of the city’s strongest forces, it’s not hard to see why he’s been rising so quickly. The budding star is seemingly one project away from being recognized as one of Atlanta’s top talents.” – HotNewHipHop
“Slimelife Shawty became a staple of Atlanta’s bubbling underground after appearing on early Lil Keed standouts like ‘Blicky Blicky’ in 2018. Since then, he’s been moving with remarkable consistency, gaining traction with anthemic songs like ‘Don’t Worry.'” – DJ Booth
Slimelife Shawty’s fluid sense of melody and unapologetically raw lyrics earned him a reputation as one of the most promising young rappers in Atlanta. Pledging his undying loyalty to his homies, Slimelife shares “Homicide,” his latest single. Alternating pained croons and tumbling, lightning quick bars, Slimelife sings the praises of his tight-knit crew and asserts that he has no time for new friends, snitches, or hangers-on: “Can you look me in my eyes and tell me that you’re with me, wrong or right?/I’m not tryin’ to be no gangster rapper or any type sh*t, this just my life.” In the video, Slimelife Shawty and his homies, decked head to toe in Tru Details, congregate to count cash outside the apartments that Slimelife spent his whole life trying to escape.
“Homiside” is Slimelife’s first new song of the year, and it follows a profile-raising year for the young talent. He recently recruited 42 Dugg for “Don’t Worry (Clappers)” (Remix), his biggest hit to date with over 13 million streams across platforms on the original version. The 22-year-old rapper connected with Lil Durk for “Brazy Life” and is a frequent collaborator with Lil Keed and Lil Gotit. The Alamo Records signee released his full length No Slime Left Behind project in May, and later in the year made noise with his street hit “All Summer” (1.8 million YouTube views).
Heading into 2021 with the wind at his back, Slimelife Shawty is well on his way to becoming one of his city’s most popular young rappers. Don’t sleep.

Slimelife Shawty is one of the most promising young voices out of Atlanta, Georgia. Inspired by hometown hero, Young Thug, the 21-year-old has found success with his Southern-twanged, pain-stained lyrics paired with melodic undertones. In 2018, Shawty assisted Lil Keed’s “Blicky Blicky,” which erupted in the Atlanta streets and drew attention to the rising lyricist. Boasting cosigns from the likes of Thug, Keed and YNW JGreen, Shawty stepped confidently into more solo success. In 2019, with his 12-track EP, 100 Reasons, and songs like “Bankroll” and “40 Bars, he amplified his smooth wordplay and shares his story with the world. Fueled by his street hit “Clappers,” Slimelife continues to gain recognition for his undeniable talent and rise to unprecedented heights.
