Transition and testimony are understatements when it comes to West Coast/Georgia recording artist Sleeze the Kingpin. Twenty nineteen was indeed a rough year for the emerging star, as he spent the first few months of the year behind bars, suspected of being the mastermind of a Christmas-day murder of a pregnant, drug-addicted woman. Even though he had absolutely no involvement, just being suspected of this crime caused him to lose most of what he held dear to him in life.
While behind bars, his life on the outside, goals, wins and losses were daily thoughts. Once an active-duty soldier, entrepreneur, restaurant owner and proud father, happy living life and seeing the world, was now a slave to suspicions that were changing his life. Everything appeared to be slipping through his fingers like sand.
In that jail, Sleeze vowed to use this situation that was meant to break him to build an empire. It’s not often that the lion gets to speak of his exploits with the hunter, but here is a chance to experience this rare phenomenon because Sleeze is the lion. Just a few weeks after being released, Sleeze began his career as an artist. He is a natural-born storyteller who is admired for his clever wordplay and the way he spins his tales. Instead of being defeated by these circumstances, Sleeze turned them into fire, and they are lighting his way.
