Decatur Born Artist Shawty Slime Unleashes New Single “Thank Yakree”



From the beginning, “Thank Yakree” introduces Shawty Slime as an outsider. The Decatur, GA native’s flow proves both unconventional and undeniable as it winds around the thick, brooding beat. In one breath, he locks into a magnetic melody only to cut through the next moment with intense spirit. The track’s nimble rhyme patterns and hypnotic hook illuminate the dynamics at the heart of his approach. At his very core, Shawty Slime leads with introspection as he dives deep into his journey of setbacks that serendipitously allowed him to be stronger than ever.

In Shawty Slime’s case, art materializes as an otherworldly melodic hybrid of soulful vocals and searing harmonies. His voice bends around thick beats and melts into instantly hypnotic choruses. Shawty found peace in music at a young age.

Kicked out of his grandmother’s house, Shawty often slept in the park—narrowly avoiding coyotes and other danger. Nevertheless, he proceeded to release music at a prolific pace. Throughout 2020 and 2021, he unleashed independent projects like Poetry Out of Pain, Overtime, L.O.S.T. and Sleep On, just to name a few.

Now, Shawty Slime transforms all of these trials, tribulations, and triumphs into art unlike anything else you’ll ever hear.

 “When you listen to my music, as well as look at my journey, I want you to take away that anything is possible.,” he leaves off. “I’ve gone through so much, but this is what I’m doing now. Take that as motivation. Keep going. Nothing can stop you. That’s what I want you to take away.”
