CharlieSlum is an emcee hailing from Pittsburgh, PA. He is an artist that delivers an entire conceptual work of art within the confines of each and every song. His music is heavily influenced by this factor, and the smooth vibes one finds in Jazz. Sounds that entrance the listener and make them feel like they're in another dimension while at the same time tied down by Slum's lyrics to the reality of life.

However, that reality that we as listeners are anchored to is far from clear cut. If anything, Slum is abstract and his lyrics are conveying matters which aren't usually discussed or put into words at all. While the majority of hip-hop artists promote drinking lean, Slum has an affinity for shroom juice. Having an unquenchable thirst for knowledge leaves him constantly teaching his listener while asking questions simultaneously. His subconscious reigns supreme over his writing process which opens the streams of factual information into the steady flow he delivers.

That flow has carried Slum from Beltzhoover, the crime infested neighborhood he was raised in all the way to the current day. He was fortunate enough to be raised by a strong family with genuine people. His grandfather was Chuck Cooper, the first African-American drafted into the NBA. Slum comes from two very progressive black families in Pittsburgh. Active in their communities and socially aware in their times. He was set up to be a strong individual despite the drawbacks he may have faced outside his windows or in his own home. At a young age he started caring for sick and elderly family members and continues to today.

His debut mixtape was 'Sounds and Coffee' and his latest project is 'Fuck Stacey Dash'. The growth between the two projects are evident. Listeners can hear the improvement in Slums flow, his delivery and cadence all beginning to seam together flawlessly. His group, 'Greenhouse Hooligans' have been active as a versatile collective for years and friends far before that. These developed sounds combined with his abstract mind are sure to unleash absolute fire on the Greenhouse Hooligans forthcoming mixtape and album. Slum is also currently preparing to drop his next project, 'Nate Ain't C'here' in the early fall of this year (2015).
Charlie Slum - Judo Chop
Slum is an emcee from Pittsburgh who has been humbled by life, given a strong foundation from his roots and is far from the typical hip hop artist. CharlieSlum embodies the grass roots, do it yourself, independent, non-conformist artist. He represents the underground and even better, the underground lane that's less traveled. He's easy going and his music reflects that. Even at his most aggressive delivery he's not bragging, he is educating his listener; something most emcees fail to do. As a vocal engineer and highly animated performer there seems to be little slum can't do or isn't attempting to master. Be on the lookout for CharlieSlum and his Greenhouse Hooligans.
