Richmond rapper, Slim Kartel, has moved from behind “Bars and Stripes” and is ready to talk greatness on his latest release, “Goat Talk.”
This first installment in what will be a series of “Goat Talk” mixtapes, features Slim bodying eight industry beats to remind listeners what he’s capable of while he’s hard at work on “Bars and Stripes 2.”
The Virginia rap veteran sounds right at home on “Choices”— a reimagining of Meek Mill’s “Chiraq”— and “Wet Like This,” using the track from Bankroll Freddie’s “Drip Like Dis” to deliver the gruff, yet smooth street talk Slim Kartel fans have grown to expect. But on tracks like “Stepping” (borrowing from Polo G’s “I Know”) Slim shows us a more melodic flow, and on “Life” (Lil Uzi Vert’s “Prices) he gives us some social reflection spitting bars like, “…focused on growth, no more absentees, get out and vote. Poor families; give em' some hope. The type shit that’ll make you a GOAT.”
The mixtape is highlighted by Slim Kartel’s take on the Moneybagg Yo hit, “Me Vs Me.” This track of the same name has a stunning “Belly” inspired visual directed by Laaces Out where Slim is spitting back and forth with his greatest competition for the GOAT title— himself.
