Regina, Canada born, world-raised rap artist, L-SLY has made a name for himself in Canada since making his debut for being one of the most diverse lyricists and well-rounded artists. Based on his seminal sun-soaked high vibe track, The Way It Goes, it is easy to see how L-SLY became the pinnacle of hustler hip hop in so many eyes and ears.
Familiarities to contemporaries and OGs are more than scarce in the elevated feat of bass-riding hip hop that instantly reels you in and locks you into the frankly genius rap bars. Out of all the rappers we’ve heard this year, no one’s lyrical form comes close to L-SLY’s. He goes beyond the usual tropes to deliver motivation and dopamine in a way like no other.
The official music video for The Way it Goes is now available to stream on YouTube.
