2014 - (ACTIVE)
A Chicago emcee laced in the deepest axiom of Hip Hop sound and culture, UNKLE SLUMP brings more than a ruckus once his infectious presence, both on and off the stage, encapsulates a room. He’s an artist whose vast vocabulary expands over a breath of break beats and drum loops, who often explores and deconstructs experiences in anxiety, depression, and misunderstanding—but finds solace in being a proud piece of shit. Painting lyrical art through music, the tunes of UNKLE SLUMP has taken him on tour with a plethora of Chicago (as well as national) acts, such as hardcore bands as well as preparing to play 1 sold out festival in 2018.
Affiliate of the Slumpgang777 and Midwest Marauder collectives, his hobbies include playing Rummikub with his mother, skateboarding, watching porn, producing and working as an Operating Engineer to step up his funds, as well as recording his own material. With sights set on the future and acute skill backing the progression of his craft, UNKLE SLUMP grandiose bravado is key to setting him apart in the vast land of musicians of this generation.
