Slimmie, My Real Life Motion Picture


Born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1985, David James Thompson goes by the stage name of Slimmie. Slimmie raps about not only his feelings but that of growing up. Slimmie had an eye opener that caused him to change his life. He entered the U.S. Army and has traveled the world thanking God for his life and choice to live. His music is a reflection of things he has lived through as well as places he has been. Survived by his sister and her children, Slimmie still choose to live but now he aims to tell his story.

He calls his story “My real life motion picture.” The passing of his mother and father greatly affected Slimmie. His mother was pleading that he shouldn’t enter the U.S. Army, but soon become proud of her son. He has now served three tours in the war on terrorism. Now he is looking to pick up his Staff Sergeant.

The event that made him change his ways was learning that his friend was shot and killed. He knew that if he continued to live the life his mother disapproved of that he too would wind up in the same circumstances as his friend. He met Joshua “Bakinsodabizz” Byrd in high school and their music was the beginning of Slimmie’s development. P90 is Well Thought Out, Prospect Empire, Prospect Records.
