Emmy-nominated creative Slick Naim leans into his musical prowess with 'Take A Drive'
Hailing from Bushwick, Brooklyn, multi-talented creative Slick Naim is well versed in the art of juggling unique talents. Having seen widespread acclaim as an Emmy-nominated writer, director, and rapper, the artist has gained international recognition for his outstanding work in the entertainment industry: creating, writing, producing, and starring in the highly-acclaimed Netflix comedy series It's Bruno! and directing the entire series of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series MO. Now leaning into his natural propensity for creating storming music offerings, Slick now returns with an expansion of his ever-growing repetoire with ‘Take A Drive’.
Armed with a distinct lyrical depth, if he were to put ‘Alchemist’ at the top of his resumé, nobody could question it. Having created a sound that resembles a transformative potion of wondrously alternative hip hop sounds and echoes of R&B and pop toplines, the master of alchemy has stirred up some magic yet again. By fusing the perfect melodic and upbeat rapping flares with r&b tones and seamlessly integrating them, Slick Naim’’s latest offering lends itself to an introspective listening experience that envelopes its listener in an ambient, reflective moment.
Reflecting on his latest offering, Slick shared:
“Take A Drive is for anyone who feels frustrated, confused on what to do in life and just needs to get out in hopes of getting some clarity on how to move forward”
Crooning over a journeyed beat,, Slick strikes the perfect balance of sophisticated cadence and recite-worthy hooks resulting in a cleverly complex track in wonderfully simple clothing. As Slick continues to interlink classic, evergreen styles with pleasing, unexpected flips, his signature unruffled and unhurried flow is one that resonates with every hip hop and r&b lover.
