Slim, who is an eight (8) time ASCAP award winner, is very excited about the partnership with his label M3 Productions and Asylum. As the first R&B artist signed to Asylum, no one was more pleased to make this happen than the label’s President Todd Moscowitz. “We waited a long time to make a move into R&B, and I couldn’t have found a better partner to do it with then Slim. I’m thrilled to be able to work with someone who I’ve been a fan of for so long.”
“Loves Crazy” features hit making production from producers Sean Garrett, Polow Da Don, Track Masters and ODDZ and ENDZ who produced the first single featuring Shawty Lo & Yung Joc.
