If you are one of the many people who doesn’t know who Slim Jesus is, consider yourself pardoned. He’s a rapper from Ohio who achieved a semblance of success with his 2015 song, Drill Time. Since then, he has released a few more songs such as Drum Roll, Warning Shots, Buck Buck, Having My Way, Geeked Up and Let’s All Get Money; but none of the others has reached the same level of success as Drill Time.
The Ohio Rapper got his start on success on YouTube. The video sharing platform has been responsible for creating the success of several other musicians who opted to not take the normal or traditional route to musical stardom. However, in this day and age, very few people still take the traditional route to success or fame.
Slim Jesus Biography – What’s His Real Name?
Before Slim Jesus was flaunting marijuana and money on social media, he was born and raised in Hamilton, Ohio. The rapper, whose birth name is Easton Phillips, was born on the 10th of April 1997 In Hamilton to Irene Brown – a single mother.
Due to the fact that he was raised in a single parent household, he had the unfortunate responsibility of having to ‘grow up’ a lot earlier than necessary. However, from an early age, he developed quite the interest in music and was revealed to be a talented musician. When he was twelve, he picked an interest in rap and not long after, he began posting his music and rap online, mostly on YouTube. Although, he didn’t get any form of notoriety until his song Drill Time.
Slim Jesus Persona And Musical Influences
Despite his musical persona, many of those who know him personally have claimed that he is nothing like his ‘thug’ rapper personality. He has been described as being very friendly and calm as well. However, despite his relatively quiet disposition among friends; he is usually up for extravagant and excessive antics in public. For this reason, he has garnered media attention and a place in the public eye.
He is actually considered one of the pioneers of a new style of rap – ‘Drill Rap’ since his song actually brought attention to the rap style. Other notable Drill Rappers include Chief Keef, who in particular, is one of Slim Jesus’s prominent influences. Other influences of his include NBA Youngboy and Logic.
Slim Jesus Musical Reception
While his songs Buck Buck and Drill Time achieved moderate success, the general reception to him and his music have been overwhelmingly negative. He has been accused of cultural appropriation. As a result of the accusations surrounding his cultural appropriation and his rap style which many have said is ‘rigid’, he has very few fans who are African Americans – who are actually the primary consumers of rap music.
He is also often called fake as a result of his music style – consistently rapping about guns, gangs, b*tches, murder and things he has been revealed to have no connection with. He is also discussed regularly in the conversations surrounding ‘The White Male Fantasy Of Black Violence’, a conversation topic that is rapidly gaining social coverage.
Is He Dead?
Currently, the Ohio rapper is still alive and making music – much to the satisfaction of his fans. Due to the deaths of other young rappers such as Lil Peep and Fredo Santana, rumors about Slim Jesus’s death consistently pop up every now and again. Despite the rumors, Slim Jesus is not dead.
Slim Jesus Net Worth
Despite being known online for consistently flaunting money on his different social media pages, especially Instagram – the rapper is said to be only worth $300,000.
Truth be told, it can be argued that $300,000 is not bad at all considering his age and the amount the average American has. However, when you compare his net worth to some of his peers, you can see why that amount is less than impressive. Lil Mouse has a net worth of $1 million, Chief Keef also has a net worth of $1 million and G Herbo also has a net worth of $1 million. The closest to his net worth bracket is Lil Bibby who has a net worth of $500,000.
