If you don't know who Chris Webby is, well than it's time to get familiar with the 23 year-old , Norwalk, Connecticut native who has been selling out shows across the country for the past couple of years. Webby, who helped usher in a new school Hip-Hop movement and mentality several years ago, has been steadily building upon the grassroots foundation he created while simultaneously honing his skills. Having worked with artists like: Freeway, Mac Miller, Joell Ortiz, Big K.R.I.T., and more, Webby has shown and proven his worth time and time again.
No one can deny the infectious blend of electric, rock, grunge, punk, soul, and comedy that Slimmie Hendrix, better known as Pittsburgh Slim, brings to the rap game.
Forever spitting the narrative to his everyday life from NYC to Los Angeles, he chronicles his experiences since he first decided to pursue his dream, living and basking in the Hollywood Nightlife, fighting off those pesky demons that lurk in night clubs (sex, drugs, and alcohol)... and losing the fight.
He’s rocked coliseums on the same bill as some of the biggest names in music including 50 Cent, Ludacris, The Clipse, T. Mills, Jurassic 5, The Roots, and Boys Like Girls. The musical sets that he’s done with artists such as Camp Lo, Dirt Nasty, Schwayze, and Riff Raff have become legendary.
In 2007 his smash hit “Girls Kiss Girls” reached the top 25 on the Billboard charts and the video has more than 15 million combined views on YouTube. His infectious mixtape, “Downtown Wednesday Night”, made enough of an impression that Jay-Z himself signed Slim to a 5 album deal on Def Jam Recordings.
Jay left Def Jam in 2008, but Slimmie has kept it moving with his own label Four Twelve Records. With the well documented global success of his fellow Taylor Allderdice High alumni, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, Slim has reclaimed his place atop the Pittsburgh Hip Hop community with his last mix tape, “Pittsburgh Slim’s Excellent Adventure”, produced by Miller/Wiz producers ID Labs. The Videos for “Skinny Bitches Have More Fun” and “Sex Tape” are jammed full of eye candy for the fellas and have become instantly viral on YouTube and the “Lifestyles of The Broke and Fabulous” track has become the new Steel City anthem and can be heard blasting out of car windows on Pittsburgh’s South Side every night of the week.
His latest mix tape "And The Beat Goes On..." is quickly becoming an instant classic, with production by Roscoe Wiki, Nesia Beatz, DJ Adam 12, and Ski Beatz, as well as features from Beedie and Dirt Nasty
