Editors’ Notes

Of the triumvirate of Texas heroes that appeared on the 2004 single “Still Tippin’”—including the inimitable Mike Jones and Paul Wall — it was Slim Thug’s commanding flow that dominated. Dozens of great Texas rap records appeared in the wake of “Still Tippin’” but endorsed by mega-successful Virginia Beach production team the Neptunes, Already Platinum expanded on the patented syrup-slow sound of Houston. Every track is custom built for Slim Thug’s gripping baritone, and tracks such as “Like a Boss,” “I Ain’t Heard of That,” and “Ashy to Classy” are devastating fusions of the Neptunes’ spare keyboard chords and DJ Screw’s decelerated bass detonations. While the Neptunes gave Thug a crossover appeal that other Texas rappers didn’t have, Already Platinum also gave prominent placement to two tracks by veteran Houston producer Mr. Lee. “3 Kings” and “Diamonds” huff and puff with such incredible thunder that listening to them is something like staring down the front end of a field artillery battalion. Save for this 6’6” Houston Hercules, it’s hard to imagine any other rapper being able stare down such fearsome weight.

Customer Reviews

This is hip-hop

From beggining to end Slim Thug does not dissapoint. The appearances are useful but not all too important. The production work is solid. One of '05's best albuns, though I feel a Mannie Fresh ("What It Do" or "I'm Fresh") and Lil' Jon (like "Trill Recognize Trill") production would've been crazy (in a good way). This album is worth at least 20 bucks Top 5 Songs: 1. 3 Kings (feat. T.I., Bun B) 2. I Ain't Heard Of That (feat. Pharrell, Bun B) 3. Interview (Amanda Diva?) 4. I Need A... (feat. Killa Kyleon, C. Ward) (Bonus Disc) 5. Like A Boss

Already Platinum-Slim Thug

H-Town's Slim Thug hit the scene big along with Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Chamillionaire. The Intro: Soulful production, Thugga keeps it all the way tough though. 3/5 Like A Boss: Menacing horns, Slim shows his boss on this one. A street banger. 4/5 3 Kings: More of a crunk track with T.I. and Bun B, it's a solid party track. 3.5/5 Diamonds: Chopped and screwed feel, it's real slow, wasn't feelin it. 2.5/5 Boyz N Blue: Production was good, with his Boss Hogg Outlaw crew. Solid track. 3.5/5 I Ain't Heard Of That: Pharrell's interesting drum beat, Slim's smooth rhymes fit perfectly. A definite banger. 4.5/5 Click Clack: Hard hitting track, another trunk rumbler. 3/5 Everybody Loves A Pimp: Track wasn't that memorable. 2.5/5 Already Platinum: Slim talks in the slowed version, production was a little different. 3/5 Ashy To Classy: Smooth production is perfect for the good life Thugga talks about. 3.5/5 The Interview: Amanda Diva interviews Slim, as he answers through rhymes. 3.5/5 Playa You Don't Know: Club banger, Slim fits in smoothly. Hot track. 3.5/5 Miss Mary: Cool & Dre's relaxful production is nice with Slim's verses of love towards his girl. 4/5 Incredible Feelin: Skipper. 2/5 This Is My Life: His hood life that is well done. 4/5 Dedicate: Pharrell's production is fitting for the topic, Slim stays hard but you can feel his pain. 4/5 A good debut, probably second to Chamillionaire in terms of H-Town debut's that year. Out of the four artists, he's probably the toughest, as his boss attitude and bangers show. Solid album, surprisingly produced mostly by The Neptunes. Rating 7 out of 10

This album is whack!!!

Some tracks from slim are hot but compared to Juelz, Jeezy, & 36 Mafia he ain't got nuthin so big waste of money. He's Okay but not compared to the best right now.

An imposing figure with a voice to match, Slim Thug had been dropping in for guest verses -- on mixtapes and other artists' albums -- for several years before making his full-length debut through the Neptunes' Star Trak label. Based out of the northern part of Houston, the MC fell in with Swishahouse's Michael Watts and established a following in short time, which had a lot to do with his business instincts -- mixtapes released on his own Boss Hogg Outlawz label circulated throughout the region....
