SLEAZYWORLD GO RETURNS WITH HEATER “ROBBERS AND VILLAINS”
MOBS AROUND KANSAS CITY IN VIDEO SHOT BY JERRY PRODUCTION
ANNOUNCES DELUXE OF MIXTAPE WHERE THE SHOOTERS BE COMING SOON
“A champion for the underdog.” — XXL
“Something tells us this song is only in the very early stages of its ascent, and we’re going to hear a lot more from SleazyWorld this year.” — Complex
“Unlike other rappers with punch-in-heavy styles, Sleazy doesn’t jam bars closely together. Instead, he lets them breathe, giving his sly taunts and twisted jokes a chance to sink in before the next one hits.” — The FADER
27 JANUARY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – 2023 is set to be a landmark year for Kansas City’s SleazyWorld Go, who was announced by Spotify as an Artist To Watch in 2023, and last week iHeartRadio announced him as nominee for Best New Hip Hop Artist. Today, he continues his winning streak with the release of “Robbers & Villains,” a tight 2-minute heater about expecting the unexpected, growing up in an environment like he did in Grand Rapids, MI, and then later in Kansas City, MO. He pairs hard-hitting bars with sinister humor, making bangers that have real street wisdom behind them — a skill that Sleazy’s already proven to master on last year’s “Sleazy Flow.” In the video for “Robbers & Villains,” Sleazy takes it back home to Kansas City and mobs around town with his crew, directed by Jerry Production.
On top of “Robbers & Villains,” Sleazy is continuing the momentum by announcing the deluxe of Where The Shooters Be, which will feature four new tracks on the fan and critic favourite mixtape from last fall. The Where The Shooters Be Deluxe will be released Winter 2023.
2022 was a huge year for SleazyWorld Go — “Sleazy Flow” earned him first a co-sign then feature from Lil Baby, his first #1 on Urban Radio, and his first RIAA certified platinum plaque. While “Sleazy Flow” set Sleazy up for success, he proved he’s here for the long haul on Where The Shooters Be. WTSB has star studded features like Lil Baby, G Herbo, Offset, Rich The Kid, and more, but it also boasts 20 tracks that showcase Sleazy’s versatility. There are hard hitting rap bangers like “Free YSL,” songs for the ladies like “Different,” and he gets sentimental about his success and how far he’s come on “Public Housing.”
SleazyWorld Go’s rise to stardom began in 2019, following a personal transformation behind bars. The artist whose mom moved his family from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Kansas City, Missouri, searching for a better life, wanted to move in a positive direction. Music was his method. He began parsing a dynamic range of songs on social media and cultivating a fanbase. Ahead of all that 2023 has in store for him, Sleazy asserts, “I want to keep breaking barriers and doing what hasn’t been done.”
