In other genres, artists are able to gain a loyal following simply by releasing a few decent recordings. This isn't true
in the rap world. Instead, up-and-coming rap artists must prove themselves as adaptable and adept live performers, otherwise
they will never make it in the music world. One man who excelled at live performing is Slim Thug.
When rap first appeared on the scene, there was a competition between the rappers on the East Coast and the rappers on
the West Coast. Then, other rappers came in to add a new voice to the genre, like Slim Thug. Instead of the East or West Coast,
Slim Thug hailed from Houston, which was proving to be fertile ground for rap music. He began drawing attention for his live shows from an early age.
One of the reasons that Slim Thug became a success early on came from the many mixtapes he appeared on, as well as guest
spots on other artists' albums. He has recorded with the likes of Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Bun B, Clipse
and others. He has also gone on to release many of his own hits, drawing crowds to his concert
Slim Thug has earned the respect of some of the biggest names in the rap world, which in turn has earned him quite the
following from fans. Those fans show up in droves in order to catch him at one of his live shows. Gather together your friends
