The pursuit of any goal is always complex and demanding. Even more so for aspiring individuals who want to make it big in the cutthroat music industry. But on the other hand, having an excellent support system makes the burden a little lighter and the journey much more fun. This is something that up-and-coming artist 38slutz knows well. After all, his success in the music scene was boosted significantly with the help and encouragement of his inner circle.
Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, the gifted young man is one of the most talked-about musicians in the city. Making waves for his unique style, electrifying sound and unrivaled musical prowess, he is unlike any other artist in the industry.
His passion for music started from a young age, surrounded by his family, who had a solid background in the field. Because of his early exposure to the craft, he has developed a nuanced taste for it and listens to a wide variety of musicians, from Lil Wayne, Eminem, and Youngboy to Michael Jackson.
When asked what motivated him to become a full-time artist, he shared, “Freedom. Imagining freedom and how I could change everything around me for the better. I feel free to say whatever I please, doing what I love to do and making a living off of it.”
38slutz first started rapping on instrumentals when he was only 16 years old, and since then, the talented MC has never looked back. He then decided to pursue a career as a rapper, and even though the experience was not perfect, having family by his side made it better. “Having a brother as a mastering engineer and uncle in New Orleans with the same craft made it easier on me to feel confident about what I was doing,” he said.
He has since released several tracks, the latest being “Neno Flow.” In addition, he has dropped a few albums, such as Hassan 2, God and Gunz, and Losing What Matters. Currently, he is preparing for the upcoming release of his next album Hassan 3, which he plans to do this year in December.
Aside from his impressive accomplishments as a musician, 38slutz is also an outstanding entrepreneur. He is the founder and CEO of the record label Hardknox Recordz LLC. Not only that, but he is also working on Dinero Clothing Apparel, a merchandise brand powered by Hardknox Recordz. The clothing line is expected to be launched in 2023.
38slutz is undoubtedly solidifying his reputation as one of the most successful individuals to come out of Jacksonville, Florida. As the young artist continues to rise to the top of the industry, he intends to release more captivating and electrifying songs that resonate with fans and audiences. On top of that, he aims to scale his brands and create a business empire, thus becoming an esteemed entrepreneur.
As the young dreamer positively manifested, “In 5 years, I see myself earning a platinum plaque, being a millionaire with a multi clothing platform powered by Hardknox Recordz.”
