With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
Slim4s - “Size 42”
Life has felt extremely routine as of late. Tomorrow will probably be no different than today. Lately, I’ve gravitated toward hip-hop that reflects that lifestyle, and rappers like DaeMoney, Lucki, and Baby Smoove somehow make the mundane sound kind of interesting. I think this is why I like Slim4s’ “Size 42”; the 18-year-old Milwaukee rapper doesn’t seem to have much going on, which is relatable. The Babyface Ray type beat is chill too; I could imagine it playing on loop for hours while I channel surf and sit on my stoop. But it’s only Slim4s’ debut music video, and even if he never makes anything this enjoyable, I’ll still appreciate passing the time with “Size 42.”
