STS (aka Sugar Tongue Slim) first came up on Philly's Slam Poetry scene. He became a regular at Black Lily, the now legendary series that started in Quest’s living room.
At the urging of DJ Jazzy Jeff, Slim began rapping. He went on to co-write Ciara’s massive hit record “Oh” which became her third top-five single and stayed on the Hot 100 for 23 weeks. Before long, Slim had a record deal w/ Def Jam. But just weeks after signing, he was in a near-fatal car accident. Unable to walk let alone record, the deal was over.
After a long recovery, he connected w/ Black Thought and joined his group, the Money Making Jam Boys. The project featured a host of producers including Questlove, and Jazzy Jeff. STS would go on to appear on The Roots album How I Got Over, including the track “Right On” featuring Joanna Newsom.
Slim has continued to collaborate with artists of all genres. In 2015, he released an LP w/ producer RJD2, titled STS X RJD2. The following year, he released his first solo effort in 8 years, Ladies Night, on Ropeadope. His current project, Better on a Sunday, is a collaboration w/ producer and multi-instrumentalist, Khari Mateen (another member of the extended Roots crew). The album is 3 years in the making and began while the two were on the road w/ RJD2. The album will be the first release on Slim's newly formed label DonCarlos Presents - a move that was inspired by RJD2's own RJ's Electrical Recordings. The album will be released on November 10, 2017.
