Young Slugz

I am a Zambian university graduate and music artist. I was raised mostly in the United Kingdom and Botswana. I'm a reserved person but not so much when it comes to my art, which is music. Music allows me to express things I wouldn't on a regular.



Tell us about you and how you would you describe your "art"?
I am a Zambian university graduate and music artist. I was raised mostly in the United Kingdom and Botswana. I'm a reserved person but not so much when it comes to my art, which is music. Music allows me to express things I wouldn't on a regular.

Where are you based?
I am currently based in Botswana .

How long have you been making "art" and how did you get started?
I have been making music since hi school but rapping since primary. I got started by going to the sprite rap activity jam with my good friend Diamond t, he introduced me to the competition, and I continued from there.

Do you come from an artistic background?
well my elder bro's are artistic and they are the main influence to me making music.

What inspires you? What are your influences (Who or What)?
I'm inspired by a lot of thing and great people, but mostly my family because the bond is strong. I've learnt so much from all of them and do look up to them in different ways.

What is your most proud accomplishment so far?
graduating from university.

What are your tools for creating?
Well so far it's been macs, pro tools and logic, per amp, mic and we good to go. The bigger studios such as Sabc, we only used for one project.

What sets you apart from the others?
Perfection.

Where are you trying to end up? (5 year plan?)
I wanna have a million in the bank!! Only joking, but I wanna be successful, and if I continue with the hard work I believe I will be as successful as I see myself in the future.

What are your favorite things in life so far?
Family and close friends, clothing, cars, music, the list is too long.

If we gave you P1M what would you do with it?
Well I'v always wanted to improve the local music industry to allow young talents to get closer to their dreams, rather than struggling with the current situation. I will do this by building a studio where I invest money into creating some of the best artists and allowing them to make a living of it by creating shows where they can open for large international artists and get features.

Any advice for people trying to do what you do?
If you are given an opportunity at education, make sure you educate yourself and finish school even if you are doing music. Make sure u create a balance.

Where can people buy/get a hold of your work?
People can download my music from reverb nation, as well as the marked men website. There are a large number of links to my music online so they can also just google my name and they will find everything.

How can people get in touch with you?
@youngslugz - twitter, Young - Slugz on fb, Slugz03 on insta, young Slugz on reverb nation and sound cloud.

Any thanks or shout outs?
Thanks to everyone who has helped and supported me as a brand and helped it get this far.
