Kunem Slizzle born Femi Adelakun launched himself in 2008 as a founding member of The Invasion Crew (T.I.C). His unique blend of indigenous elements, clever wordplay, credible swagger, and an eclectic selection of instrumentation led to a distribution deal with RS Movement Label & Management.
This collaboration brought about the official digital release of his mix tape, ‘NBST: No Be Small Thang’ on 15 May, 2011.
The NBST mix tape effort features production from local and international producers, Beats by Butta and Elliot Grey. The project also features a wide swath of burgeoning musicians on tracks ranging from quasi-dance crossovers to the essence of Nigerian hip-hop.
A full CD project is expected to follow soon.
