At only 18-years-old and having only recorded for less than a year now, Slatt Zy introduces the world to the neighborhood that shaped him to be the 18-year-old man he is today through his new project, East Lake Projects. Listen here.
“East Lake Projects is where I became a man. It was tough to value life there, and getting over that made me a man. To me it’s more than projects – it’s my family, and we got through together. 17 people in 2 rooms, 12 people sleeping on one floor – granny, 11 siblings, auntie. We been through struggles together.” Says Slatt Zy.
Despite his young age, Slatt Zy has experienced more than most evident in his street anthem Drama. “We been through everything -shoot outs, hungriness, shoeless, people dying. East Lake Projects is where all my problems came from and made me grown early, but my happy times came from there too. I couldn’t imagine any other way to be. The projects may have given me scars and bruises, but also motivated me to be the nigga I am today.”
The 100K management affiliate has already amassed over 10 million streams on his own. His self-released debut mixtape Zy Story charted on Apple Music too. Slatt Zy was touring with Rod Wave right before the pandemic hit and cites most of his musical influences stem from country and R&B.
