Despite the overabundance of Rap artists emerging Atlanta, Slim Goody still remains unique with individuality and an artistic mind raising his popularity over his Dirty South competition. Although his music career developed in Atlanta, he was born in Chicago on July 20, 1984. Making music became a hobby and by the time he was in high school he’d already mastered piano and snare drum favoring the genre of jazz. At age 18 he moved to Atlanta to further his career in music.
In 2004, for the first time, Slim’s Atlanta family learned of his musical talents and began entering him in weekly open mics around Atlanta. His older brother, Derrick Lewis, whom he calls “Pop,” purchased studio equipment so that he could produce and record his own songs. Slim formed two groups, “First Born” and “Goodfellas,” managed by his brother Derrick Lewis, and performed at many musical events around Atlanta. He later found his comfort as a solo artist nicknaming himself Chi-City Rebel. Moving from Chicago to Atlanta to California to Oklahoma, Slim inherited the respect and different music styles of each area which only boosted his own creative ideas in music and lyrics.
Slim’s solo album “Necessary Roughness,” which he co-produced, won him more shows, production sells, magazine interviews, radio plays, and distribution opportunities. The album includes singles “No Love,” “Revelation 3:16,” and “Who Is She.” He is currently working on his new album, “He The Black Sheep,” touring from state to state, collaborating with major artist, selling tracks, and awaiting his moment to be claimed as one of the best.
