With an imposing shape and booming voice to complement, Slim Thug (born Stayve Jerome Thomas) began his rise by dropping set for guest verses — on mixtapes as well as other artists’ albums — for quite some time prior to making his full-length debut with the Neptunes’ Star Trak label. Structured from the northern section of Houston, the MC dropped in with Swishahouse’s Michael W and set up a following very quickly. This strategy got too much to do along with his business intuition: mixtapes released by himself Employer Hogg Outlawz label circulated through the entire area. (He also obtained a few record shops and became associated with property.) Currently Platinum, written by Geffen, suffered many release-date delays before its July 2005 road date, and highlighted production work through the Neptunes and Jazze Pha. The Employer of most Bosses followed in ’09 2009, with Tha Thug Present arriving twelve months afterwards. In 2012, he kicked off his Thug Thursday night mixtape series (the sequel lowered in 2014, using a third area of the trilogy arriving in 2016). He also released the Thanks for visiting Tx series: 2013’s installment highlighted Rick Ross, Pimp C, and Ludacris. That same season, Thug released a joint record with Lil’ Keke entitled The Big Device, in addition to his 4th LP, Boss Lifestyle, which highlighted Big K.R.We.T., Paul Wall structure, Chamillionaire, Bun B, Yo Gotti, and Kevin Gates. 2015 will be another active season for Thug. Starting his Hogg Lifestyle series, he revealed the first component, THE START, that Feb. Still Surviving implemented that summertime, with Hustler of the entire year arriving in Oct. A year afterwards, Quantity 4, American Ruler, debuted in the very best 10 from the Billboard rap graph.
