Cashbox R&B / HipHop Picks
Getting Back in the Swing
This tune starts with a solid beat and verse rap for 'Momz', but the chorus vox are what really
sells it. Great funky street beats by SD, and excellent vocals by 2Mental and Jewelz. I've checked out a number of Slimdogs songs, and this one still stands out. Btw SD, where did you get the horn patches for "Kotton Klub"? They are outstanding.

The second reason is to give you a small taste of his talent and broad range. This tune was a Christmas present.
LEGENDARY MUSIC II
Here I go again folks, another example of synchronicity finding its way into my life, this time thanks to the threesome of Slimdog, 2mental and Jewelz. How's that you ask? Simplicity man, pure and plain simplicity ... you see I've been trying to get to Slimdog's Artist Page for dog's ages - hey, no pun intended!! So here I am showing up just ten days before Christmas, and what song to I choose to listen to first? Yep, you got it - "Dear Momz". So what's that got to do with synchronicity? Everything! The song was a Christmas gift to 2mental's mom, and that sure made this feel like synchronicity to me. Anyway, congrats to Slimdog, 2mental and Jewelz for picking up the Golden Kayak for Best Song Hip Hop/Rap 2007 AND for hitting # 1 on Cashbox Magazine's Top 10 Indie Picks for R&B Hip Hop - well deserved recognition and achievement in anybody's books. As for the song itself ... awesome way cool funk beat, intense and passionate vocals, poignant and polished lyrics, experienced arrangement and smooth Slimdog production ... it all adds up to one perfectly "rap-turous" dedication to "Dear Momz" here, there and everywhere. To describe the song in one word: a "Standout". Welcome to Legendary Music II.
