Being self-taught, Isabell Slim had to fend for himself in order to pull weight in the industry as a hip hop artist. Slim recalled his early moments of being Slim when he said, “Getting any type of footing in this industry is almost impossible. No one wants to help each other. I was scammed, I was lied to, I was beat down, I wanted to quit because I was so fed up. But I knew I had to make my own way. I’m just blessed I was able to find a way.” Slim’s relentless pursuit of his dream has more than paid off.
