YSL signe Bslime has been building up his name for the last three years. The 23-year-old artist grew up watching his uncle Jeffery Lamar Williams, also known as global superstar Young Thug, build his empire called Young Stoner Life Records. Having the opportunity to watch his uncle rise to stardom allowed Bslime to absorb as much wisdom and knowledge as possible. From getting the late Lil Keed signed to YSL, to being a student of the game, Bslime sat back and waited for his time to shine.
Five years later, the Atlanta rapper has proven he has the talent to carry on YSL’s name. Bslime was featured on Young Thug hit single “Peepin Out The Window,” featuring Future with 23 million views and counting on Youtube. He also appeared on two tracks for YSL’s compilation album Slime Language 2, including his single “No Surprise,” ft Don Toliver with 10 million streams.
On December 7, Bslime released his debut album, “Love Me or Don’t.” The 15-song project features guest appearances from Young Thug, Future, Toosii, Persona Jackson, Booley, and Okky.
“I want people to see I can music for everyone and not just on some shoot ‘em up bang bang sh*t,” he explained. “Like I really make album-worthy type music that will shock them.”
This project shows off Bslime vulnerability as he discusses his journey to where he is today. I truly enjoyed listening to his melodic voice and hearing how much effort he put into creating a wonderful project. In 2023, you can expect Bslime to make great efforts toward advancing his career.
“Next year I am dropping at least 2 more solo projects and a collaboration tape with Lil Gotit.” he revealed. “A lot of touring and getting more into the merch game. Outside of music, I want to model and just turn the bros up on my label Rich Steppa Records.”
Love Me or Don’t is now available on all streaming platforms.

As we approach the end of the year, I always find myself looking back on the events that unfolded in the world of rap since January to see who I think had a bigger year than the rest. Sure, there are always emcees who were big that got bigger, and...
