Sliime is back with a new drop, this time the fresh new single titled “Dust Mask & 24 Carat”.
Produced by M1 on the Beat and Jackson Romain, “Dust Mask & 24 Carat” is offers an onslaught of bars from the onset as Sliime offers distinct and impactful lyrics before shifting gear halfway through to demonstrate and slower yet still impactful flow.
Born in Sheffield but of Bangladeshi roots, Sliime is flying the flag for South Asian rap in the UK and recently told GRM, “I’m originally from Bangladesh, my Mum came to the UK at a young age. Growing up in Sheffield, I never felt like I had a place where there were people like me… In primary and secondary school, there were all sorts of people around and I was always meeting new people. I grew up with white people, and some people from Yemen and Somalia, but I only knew a handful of Bengalis… I never felt like I had my own community until now.”
“You can clearly hear that I’m from the North [in my accent] and then when I use Bengali or South Asian lingo, you can tell I’m from there. It’s nice to be able to represent people from Sheffield as well as Bangladesh”
