Feb 2012 13

IAA:  What is your music background?

RIO SLIM:   I’ve been rapping since I was 12 years old.  I started out in a group called Mello Drama.  The group eventually ended and then I started rapping as a solo artist.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

RIO SLIM:   I believe that music is my calling. We all have a purpose on this earth, and I feel that my purpose is reaching people through music. 

IAA:  What are your songs about?

RIO SLIM:   My music is based on real life experiences.  I call it real life music, because its music people can relate  to.

Who is your fan base directed towards?

RIO SLIM:   My music is for all races and ages. I remember performing a song at the Black Arts Festival about losing a loved one. Everyone in the audience was in tears because they could relate to the topic.  If I can touch you with my words, then my music is for you.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

RIO SLIM:   I have been influenced by Tupac, Biggie, UGK,  the temptations and many more.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

RIO SLIM:   My music is going to keep you motivated. I would describe my music as being soulful and uplifting.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist?*

RIO SLIM:   I live for music. Music is my life.  I work hard every day.  I lay 5 songs a day, and I drop hit after hit.  I am very consistent, and I get better every day.

What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on?

RIO SLIM:   Well I have my new single Ball Out and All I Like To Do getting pressed as we speak.  I will be releasing a video to Ball Out shortly.  My mixtape  On Da Way will be dropping in March. I have big things poppin this year, so I am very busy.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

RIO SLIM:   My career goal is to be a legend in the music industry.  I want to branch off from music and do acting.  In the next 10 years, I want to win a Grammy, Oscar, write music for other artists, and write movie scripts.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?*

RIO SLIM:   I can be emailed at rioslim28@gmail.com
