Slitta is not playing fair and the year just started. Yesterday, the D1CMG artist debuted his second album More Red.
Still riding a wave from his highly successful August debut, Pink & Red, Slitta is showing no signs of slowing down. More Red is already on target to surpass its predecessor, only serving as evidence that Slitta is only getting better and better.
More Red is an 11 track effort produced nearly in its entirety by 80Apes. Despite falling short of the 30 minute mark, More Red leaves nothing to be desired. Slitta reiterates that street life is multifaceted and gives fans a looks at some of those faces.
Slitta’s versatility, talent, and work ethic are on full display for More Red. Slitta is the only artist to appear on the album. Slitta produced nearly half of the track and mixed and mastered the album himself.
The lead single “Just Like That” is indicative of Slitta’s energy. The video for which debuted four days ago. The follow up single “Dirty Game” is a look at the less glamorized portions of street life. The Englewood Trap Angel appears almost vulnerable in the visual. Alone surrounded by papers strewn about an open bottle of cognac and a computer. The simple yet powerful image accentuates Slitta’s lyrics, allowing fans to focus on what matters most: the music.
