Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes present hip-hop artist J. Slaughter and announce the release of his debut mixtape, set for release in February 2015.
Jamil Bin Kareem Slaughter, better known as J. Slaughter was introduced to the craft of music at a young age. Growing up, his father was a Jazz musician, who was a great influence to J by showing him the soulful sounds of David Ruffin and Donny Hathaway. These are the sounds that can be found infused into his hip-hop flow and witty lyrical wordplay. J. Slaughter first became infatuated with writing music when he was in grade school, specifically the cafeteria lunch table. As he grew he honed his ability to write captivating lyrics and his talent for storytelling. He has made it his personal goal to separate himself from the “normal” styles people are used to hearing from artists in Houston. He has also set up his own independent label called RMG, or Real Music Group.
J. Slaughter’s debut mixtape is entitled “Which Way Is Up”, and it entices the listener with the infusion of melodic soul music. This mixtape will be released on February 4th, 2015 and will be available for download on the Coast 2 Coast website. J. Slaughter uses musical tools that were made to captivate the listener’s mind, ears, and speak to their soul. The debut mixtape illustrates a young man’s struggle of the past, determination to overcome, and working to secure success in life. Working to create a new Houston rap genre, J. Slaughter takes inspiration from great artists such as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, David Ruffin, Tupac, Scarface, and Jigga. Be sure to keep a look out for the new clothing line “Trapletes” by J. Slaughter. To hear more music from J. Slaughter be sure to follow him on Twitter at @jslaughter_rmg.
