Serving as an ode to the underdogs, Charlie Slum aka Charles Slum unloads his latest track
“Bummer.” Accompanied with matching visuals, the Steel City native describes the song as
“a petty rub in the face to all doubters.” Produced by Moe, The Natural & DJ Macky D the
hard-hitting cut is yet another example of why he’s an early contender for ‘Artists To Watch’
Hailing from Pittsburgh, Charlie Slum is a constantly evolving emcee. Grandson of Chuck
Cooper, the first African-American drafted into the NBA, Slum comes from an educated
and progressive black family. Active in their communities and socially aware of their
responsibilities, Charles was groomed to be a strong individual despite the obstacles he
faced publicly as well as privately.
More motivated by winning a Grammy than a championship ring, he dropped his debut
mixtape ‘Sounds and Coffee’ in 2011. The 20-track collection of songs was followed by a
handful of quick-strike drops including ‘Fuck Stacey Dash,’ ‘Nate Aint Chere,’ and
‘Slum&Taro.’ With each effort came growth, maturity and a new set of fans. Outside of his
solo bodies of work, Slum has respectively released music as apart of the Greenhouse
Hooligans, a versatile collective of talented creatives.
