Slatt Zy – East Lake Projects (Album Stream)

Rising Chattanooga, Tennessee rapper Slatt Zy introduces the world to the neighborhood that shaped him to be the 18-year-old man he is today through his new project “East Lake Projects”. The East Lake Projects is deeply indebted to Zy’s childhood, and on the project, he aims to shine a light on the community he grew up in and the violence that still plagues it. Zy was raised in East Lake alongside his musically inclined family of 11 brothers and sisters. Zy’s project showcases a more vulnerable, personal side which expresses his struggles. On the first track, “Straight Out Them Projects,” Zy immediately establishes the tone of the record. Over melancholic piano chords, he sings, “We come from poverty / We had to find a way / Straight out them projects, ain’t had shit, I had to find a way.” Zy 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.” Says Slatt Zy. “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.” Fans and new fans to be of Slatt Zy will quickly recognize his effortless flow, which moves from melodic, growled bars to more mournful, introspective lines on this project..
