Slug Christ is a rapper-producer based in Atlanta, Georgia.
"My style is very 808 heavy. I'm very trap influenced, I'd like to consider myself doing the next version of trap music, more abstract."
Trap music boasts itself as some of today's most tightly sequenced hip-hop music, but Slug Christ's loose, drug-induced delivery has helped him establish his own style within the genre. If you miss the rawness that rap feels like it's missing these days, then look no further than Slug Christ.
Undergrind: "Weird has become a cliche in hip-hop as of late, with spacey oddballs popping up all over the place. However, with Slug Christ, weird is truly an artform. As a member of Atlanta's Awful rap collective, Slugger has become one of the hottest young hip-hop artists by opening his consciousness and releasing it onto the track for thousands to hear."
Redbull.com: "As twisted as most of the members are from the diverse Atlanta rap collective that is Awful, Slug Christ is easily among its weirdest. And perhaps its most polarizing, too. His lackadaisical delivery registers close to the woozy rhyme schemes of fellow Awful member Ethereal, but Slug's more about impressionistic channelings of his 'fourth-dimensional' self, wrapped here in his own mythological crucifixion. In fact, his Crucifixion Day is produced by Lucifer himself (Jesus produces its previous track, Wanderer), who together turn in one of the most epic, experimental rap tracks in recent memory. And it just gets more bizarre from there. Cameos by fellow Awful members Father, Lord Nard and Pyramid Quince top this fantastic release."
The Spectrum: “In fact, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to state that Slug Christ is a pop artist who takes the sounds of mainstream hip-hop and reinvents them in his own unsettling, but enlightening way.”
Classic Entourage Magazine: “Music Heads: Slug † Christ is SWAG's savior. Slug † Christ is an artist boom- ing onto the underground trap music scene. He recently performed at SXSW where he produced a killer set. Self de- scribed as ‘Just a guy.’ Slug † Christ is one of the new faces of trap. Making tracks with Father and Keith Ape this young entertainer is taking off.”
