Slatt Zy Invites You To The "East Lake Projects" On His New Album
Written By: Jacob Widsa
Most 18-year-olds with less than a year’s experience in the music industry would be lucky to release one solid single. But on his recently released album, East Lake Projects, Slatt Zy demonstrates talent well beyond his years. The album and its accompanying music video for 3Ks feature a confident vocal performance and infectious beat. Slatt says:
East Lake Projects is where I became a man. It was tough to value life there, and getting over that made me a man. To me it’s more than projects - it’s my family, and we got through together. 17 people in 2 rooms, 12 people sleeping on one floor – granny, 11 siblings, auntie. We been through struggles together. We been through everything -shoot outs, hungriness, shoeless, people dying. East Lake Projects is where all my problems came from and made me grown early, but my happy times came from there too. I couldn’t imagine any other way to be. The projects may have given me scars and bruises, but also motivated me to be the nigga I am today.
The OG Parker produced album emphasizes this cocktail of complicated feelings beautifully. Check out the music video for 3Ks down below. Fans can also the entire East Lake Projects LP here. Connect with Slatt on Instagram, and Twitter.
