Slim Thug got a little more then a tenth of the way to being already platinum this week. The only artist on top of the Hogg in this week's Billboard charts was R. Kelly (insert inappropriate "being underneath R. Kelly" joke here).
Thugga's disc is well-stocked with some of Ph'real's sickest snares in a minute, but even though Slim's major label debut is finally out, it ain't like he's gonna pop an Ambien and get sleepy. Dude is already back on the mixtape grind with a new set, hooking up with DJ Drama (of the Gangsta Grillz series) for Boss Basics. There's some summertime dissage, with Slim going at Sqad Up on the track "Sqad Down" (burn!), and Lil' Flip on "Buss The Tech," but the main attractions are Slim's freestyles over "Sittin' Sideways," and "I'm A Hustler." Quite boss-like.
