Chicago, IL — April 1, 2018 — “Who but Slime? I throw high fives, and you tell lies, I’m gone shine, and I’m the truth you can see it my eyes.” —Slimeaveli
It’s been four years since one of Chicago’s more buzz-worthy up-and-coming acts Slimeaveli — formally P Dibiase — dropped his 20-song debut mixtape, Steve Jobs. After acclaimed performances at major music festivals such as Atlanta’s highly esteemed A3C, and the annual SXSW, as well as performances throughout the US, he took a brief hiatus before launching his Slimeaveli mixtape series, re-inventing his brand and officially changing his name.
Following the success of 2017’s Slimeaveli 2: Go Blow Yo Nose Shorty, which included the piano-driven banger “Threw In The Towel,” Slimeaveli has officially announced his debut studio EP The Slimiest, which dropped on all platforms on March 28, 2018. Let off by the Derrick Soundz produced single “Who But Me,” as well as the previously released track “On God” and lRenegade ;” both of which have been gaining traction. The 13-song effort is his most powerful to date.
“The Slimiest” rapper was born on the Westside of Chicago, and moved to the East Roger’s Park neighborhood, attending high school in Chicago’s notorious South Side. Though he is the right age to be fully engulfed in the city’s drill-wave, what makes his reality-based music so unique is the fact that it straddles both sides of the proverbial fence. It’s raw uncut but has elements of the windy city’s soul-filled musical tapestry blended with clear delivery and a more lyrical aesthetic hankering back to some of his city’s more iconic exports.
Though he’s been one of the city’s best-kept secrets for a while now, it seems as though 2018 will see that secret get out. With a numerous amount of videos recently released and a robust catalog of music under his belt, the industry will soon see Slimeaveli live up to the potential those in the know have been hip to for the past four years.
