DIGITAL MUSIC NEWS: Slim Jesus Burns a Record Contract: “F*** a Label”

Since his recent rise to fame, Slim Jesus has made it clear that he has absolutely no intentions on signing to a label.

Slim Jesus has always been anti-label, but this was further confirmed in a recently uploaded Instagram video. In the video, the “Drill Time” rapper can be seen burning an alleged contract from an unknown label. As it stands, Slim’s “Drill Time” video has nearly 16 million views, and with this success it sparked the interest from record labels, who have reportedly reached out to him with offers.

However, Slim is adamant on staying independent and insists that he remains untouched by the influence of major labels. The Hamilton, Ohio artist has claimed that he’s received record contracts from several labels, but has turned them down, as he prefers to retain complete creative control over his work and image.

As Slim sets light to the contract in the video, he says, “A little fun fact a lot of y’all don’t know. I been had offers from the same bullsh*t ass labels signing your favorite rappers. And you know how I feel about ’em? F*ck a label. We getting independent money, bi*ch.”

This is a bold move from Slim, as there’s no going back now: the rapper would be completely ridiculed if he were to sign to a label (not that he has any intentions to).

So, is this a step in the right direction for Slim, or a huge mistake? While signing to a label would make it easier for Slim to get publicity and work with established producers and artists, he’d also lose creative freedom and be restricted to work within label-defined boundaries.
