Houston kingpin Slim Thug has already proven himself to be the boss of all bosses. But now, the Boss of the North is teaming up with, well, the Bawse to engage in some "Boss Talk."
Complex is proud to premiere the Slim Thug and Rick Ross collaboration (also featuring contributions from Jack Freeman) "Boss Talk," off of Slim's upcoming album The World Is Yours. Thugga shared how the track came about.
"Ross and I have known each other for a while and he knew I was doing my Boss Life Construction Company (we are rebuilding the neighborhood that I grew up in from the ground up) so he tapped me to hop on the remix of his track, 'Buy Back the Block' and he hopped on my track 'Boss Talk,'" Slim told Complex. "'Boss Talk' is just that, two bosses talking boss shit over a G&B H-Town track. This is Southern soul, Cadillac music."
Slim also said he views The World Is Yours as a sequel of sorts to his 2005 debut album Already Platinum.
"The World Is Yours is my version of Already Platinum 2," he explained. "There is no Neptune production, but if you listen you can hear a few songs have that type of vibe to them; especially the ones produced by Cam Wallace (like 'TRAP') who produced five records on TWIY. TWIY wasn’t made to ride the waves of today. I want to give the fans who have been craving another Already Platinum album something to listen to.
You can listen to "Boss Talk" below. The World Is Yours will be out Friday, and you can pre-order it here. With the pre-order, you'll receive "Boss Talk" and the previously-released Big K.R.I.T.-featuring "Kingz & Bosses."
