Everybody’s tour guide to the underworld of New York City. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in Dyckman, Slayter is a solo artist here to share a bit of dark and sinister surrealism via his lifestyle and soundscapes with us. His music is a reflection of classic New York rap, revamped through the lens of his modern-day experiences and coupled with sheer honesty over lush, moody production. After gaining the attention of Jonny Shipes, founder and CEO of independent Hip- Hop label Cinematic Music Group in 2017, Slayter began working on his debut EP entitled Cold At Night.
The goal for the project, which dropped on July 19th, is to tell a poetic, self-aware narrative to listeners that invites them to join along in seeing where his Gotham City adventures take him. Earlier this year, Slayter released visual assisted loose singles “Baby Draco” and “Back Pain”. Both offer a taste of his indulgent search for clarity, and exposure to the obscure, fly, underbelly of his surroundings that are to come.
About Cinematic Music Group
Cinematic Music Group (CMG) is a multidisciplinary record label, management and creative studio founded in Brooklyn, NY in 2007 by CEO Jonnyshipes. Originally founded as a hip-hop-focused indie label, CMG quickly grew into a multi-dimensional media company, working with artists of all genres and creating world-class video content.
Armed with a passion for artist development, Jonnyshipes aspired to create an environment that would give his artists total creative control to express their artistic visions. CMG’s artist-first reputation proved instrumental in recruiting early signees like Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hussle, Big K.R.I.T., and Joey Bada$$. Since then, Shipes has discovered and launched the careers of artists such as Flipp Dinero, Luh Kel, Yungeen Ace, Xanman, JayDaYoungan, among others, and Cinematic became the home for veteran artists like T-Pain and Cam’ron.
As Cinematic heads towards its 13th anniversary, it continues to be one of the industry’s premier independent labels, praised for its unwavering dedication to its artists, the team’s work ethic, craftsmanship, and talent, and its singular devotion to creating superior sounds.
