Representing Houston and Atlanta, Slim K has made a name for himself as one of hip-hop’s premiere choppers and screwers (the method of slowing the tempo of a track and using other scratching techniques, as popularized by DJ Screw in the early ’90s). Known to apply his touch to contemporary rap anthems, it’s Kanye West, Jay-Z and Big Sean’s Cruel Summer cut, “Clique,” which gets double cupped up and laced with that purple drank. Predictably enough, it makes for a potently lethargic listen.
Slim’s “Clique” remix can be found on his Purple Children 3 project, releasing tomorrow (Oct. 8). Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi also get “chopped not slopped” on the tape.
