In an Instagram live interview with Tshego last week, Slim BLVD announced his return to the music space after a two-year silence since he dropped last single ‘On Blast’, featuring Nadia Nakai and Kly back in 2018. Interviewed by his longtime friend and collaborator, Tshego, the two share a candid exchange about the changes in their lives, their struggles at the beginning of their careers, and where they are now. During this exchange, Slim announced the release of his first annual March Madness mixtape.
“It’s been a dream of mine to do a tape like this,” Slim explains to Tshego. “When I started at Cantarre, I wanted to put people on. But to be honest, you [had] to be a certain level of ‘unknown’ for people to put you on [in club settings].” For this reason, March Madness is Slim’s way of showcasing talent from less-known artists and extending his platform to them where he can.
