DC’s Kingpen Slim has some heat to help you survive the frigid temps in two brand new Mark Henry-produced bangers. On the soulful “She Loves Me” Slim, reminds us why dealing with romantic relationships is the closest thing to suffering from an actual mental illness. The schizophrenic roller coaster of love and hate, ignored calls and texts, mind games, and intense passion bring new meaning to being committed.
“Show Must Go On,” with its orchestral strings and energetic drum programming, brings to mind epic Just Blaze tracks like “Breathe” and “Lord Knows.” Slim’s wordplay is top notch here, with double entendres and witty turns of phrase throughout.
Neither of these tracks will be featured on Kingpen Slim’s upcoming LP, now titled Life After Doubt in a clever nod to The Notorious B.I.G.’s and Jay Z’s classic albums. The fact that these didn’t make the final cut, bodes well for the DC native’s album. Here’s hoping that he and Mark Henry have more collaborations to come, as their chemistry is now undeniable.
