SLIM VEZZY: THE MILLENNIAL LIGHT FOR URBAN INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC

THE PLUG NAMED JIMMY

Orange Mound, a neighborhood located in southeast Memphis, Tennessee, was the first African American neighborhood in Memphis built by African Americans.  

Built on the former Deaderick plantation grounds, the Orange Mound subdivision was developed for African Americans in the 1890s to provide affordable land and residences for the less wealthy. 

Drugs and crime infected the neighborhood in the 1980s and 1990s. In the first decade of the 21st century, revitalization efforts were started and show positive effects. Orange Mound hosts a growing underground rap scene as well as national hip-hop stars. The hit rap duo 8 Ball & MJG (Premro Smith and Marlon Jermain Goodwin) grew up in Orange Mound.  

They met at Ridgeway High in East Memphis, where many Orange Mound children were educated from the early 1970s to the early 1990s. 

Global recording artist Slim Vezzy grew up in Orange Mound & from day one, his life story was “Against All Odds.”   

Slim Vezzy faced multiple obstacles during his childhood, from deep-rooted racism to drug dealer dreams.  Slim Vezzy birth included multiple life-changing elements, but his journey was all “God’s Plan.” Slim Vezzy was an honor student throughout his early academic years & began drawing full animated pictures at the tender age of 8.   

The transition from artist drawing to music became natural for Slim Vezzy.  In the beginning, Slim Vezzy grew up emulating his rap style after MJG & 8Ball, 2Pac, Biggie, Three Six Mafia, & more.  He formed a rap group & launched his career in full beast mode.   

The rap group achieved significant success, but it conflicted with his internal purpose as one of God’s future musical vessels. Slim Vezzy made one of the most challenging decisions in his life, he separated himself from the band & dedicated his life to God.   

Slim Vezzy focused his music on the blessings & principles of God. The new direction enabled Slim Vezzy to become a better man, spiritual warrior, husband, leader, & friend.  Slim Vezzy re-launched his music career with the full support of his family & the rest is “HISTORY.” Slim Vezzy dropped his phenomenally successful radio track “Not Today” in 2017 on all major platforms.  The track is a soundtrack to any person contemplating quitting on their dreams.   

The lyrics of “Not Today” are mental therapy for all Millennials working through the day-to-day grind.  “Not Today” has generated over 90,000 Spotify streams in less than 24 months.  The digital catalog of Slim Vezzy maintains an average of 150,000 Spotify listeners annually.   

The music of Slim Vezzy currently expands in 15 foreign countries, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, & Italy.  Slim Vezzy music has gained him Urban Inspirational Album of the Year for “Blood Bought.”  The brand of Slim Vezzy is expanding into clothing, global merchandising, & more in 2019.  Slim Veezy understands that his music is a guiding “Light for Millennials.”

ARTISTNAMELEON: Becoming conscious of his imminent music greatness

Lyrics below represent reflect the artistic vision and legend of “ARTISTNAMELEON”.

They tryna see me without

They tryna cover my route

They plan on bringing me down

Can’t keep a real nigga down

I’ll always find my way out

You know I’m smarter than them

I’ma go harder than them

West side they know what we bout

East side they know what we bout

Might put them golds in my mouth

Just so they know what I’m bout

Used to sell drugs out the house

Now I just work out the house

Back when my pockets was slim

Used to go half a nick

Now I roll up by the eighth

You don’t know nothing bout me

I had to struggle my way

Now I look back like okay

Proud that I did it my way

I got some music to make

Ain’t no more playing it safe

I see the thrown up for takes

You had a year it was great

Heard your new shit it was straight

They know I’m back on my wave

I know they’re very afraid

I’m jogging on the white sands of South Beach Miami, Florida, trying to exercise and clear my mind to consume positive energy. Blaring through my “Beats By Dre,” Pro headphones is “Locked In” by an emerging force in Hip-Hop aptly named “ARTISTNAMELEON.” One of the cool factors of being a professional journalist in the world of music is “discovery.”

A real journalist is always in pursuit of life components that challenge our inner being and imagination. “Locked In” commands a different type of attention, because of the vulnerability, passion, and undisputed artistic vision it emits. His music production synchronizes perfectly with the emotional and sonic vibe pattern of his rap delivery. In most cases, indie artists can’t find the proper balance between mass-appeal and quality street music.

ARTISTNAMELEON is blessed with a rare music gift of instinct and finding intricate words of vocal impact. The theme of “Locked In” is designed for any Millennial dreaming of fulfilling their destiny without compromise. ARTISTNAMELEON enables listeners to explore their deepest feelings and fears in real-time. I usually don’t jog unless my mind is racing and needs to be at peace. Trying to keep my sanity during this COVID-19 pandemic has presented unimaginable trials. Music is my #1 option for therapy. “Locked In” doesn’t disappoint, and I understand why “ARTISTNAMELEON” senses greatness is “closer than before.”
