Emerging Calgary rapper Ak-Slim has tapped Vancouver producers Lomax and Brock Hendriks as collaborators on his latest single “NASTY.”
The video assisted single was released March 19th of this year and has already amassed over 76K views on YouTube. In the video for “Nasty”—shot by Arturo Albuerne and edited by MyNameFrench—Slim deviates from his gritty auto-tune assisted flow, to a new tropical type of sound, while showing scenes with stunning performance shots on an ATV in the sandy beaches of Cabo San Lucas.
