"TH3 SLK, On Top Of The Industry From The Bottom Of The Earth"
While some may fall victim to life changing situations, TH3 SLK adapts in a way uncanny to any human being the world has seen. These innate survival skills were instilled in him at an early age growing up in an abusive household with his grandmother, grandfather, and older sister. While on drinking binges he and his sister would often witness brutal physical attacks on their grandmother. Once even chasing an adolescent version of the man we know as TH3 SLK, through the house with a kitchen knife. "It was wild growing up. I seen it all. Funny thing is we were middle class. My father was above average in the pay scale. We lived on the North side of Mount Vernon NY. But as I always said, growing up in 400 summit ave, a knock at the door was safety. Company, even family was shown different. But yeah, he (my grandfather) was 6 something. I'm 5'7 arguably now. But he chased me into my uncles room with the knife and cornered me on the bed. When he bucked it, I jump manned over his head and ran to town barefoot. I was scared for my life but at a certain point I was tired of running," said TH3 SLK. As he speaks his eyes drape low in what would seduce any woman but deep inside lies pain, yet strength. Being locked up and kicked out and facing homelessness as well as growing up without his mother who was on drugs hardened TH3 SLK. With his homelessness came his triumph and his street savvy. He can sit in the room and talk for hours and you won't say a word. You'll be so engaged you'll want more. That's the intellect and infectious spirit of a man that embodies the rap prowess to bring the title back to NY and position himself as raps elite. Women can't help but be attracted to him like a magnet as was the case throughout his life. His opting for love is where he learned the mind body and soul of a woman. Now with a skyrocketing public appeal his stories of love, street life and his signature seductive LL image, ladies can't get enough of him. With his viral G.O.A.T. EP on Spotify as of yesterday and hitting other retailers, he is already working on his major debut album!! Still you can't tell his fame has reached an all time high. He stays quiet perched on the arm of his couch locked into engaging fans but comes alive when he interacts with human beings. Humble is an understatement. He walks through his hood in Haverstraw passing his 7 series BMW in which he glares over to the custom plates that read TH3 SLK, and smiles as if in that moment he realizes who he actually is. The next moment he opens the doors to his 1993 Toyota Camry with 228k miles, seats his kids securely in the back and then reaches for a Bluetooth speaker to play music off of. As you can imagine the radio doesn't function at all. But why would a man of his stature pass a fine piece of German engineering for a hoopty? This SLK is not far removed mentally from his past struggles and uses that as his motivation, not material things. It's the fabric of TH3 SLK that believes clothing or vehicles he once loathed over, are not as important as his ultimate vision. To be the greatest of all time and give the world something to believe in.....Genius!!

New Atlanta Based Recording Studio Plans For TH3 SLK & His DonLyfe Empire
In the past week TH3 SLK has not only put his viral SoundCloud hit #GOATEP on #Spotify #AppleMusic & #Tidal (Once They Realise its already been weeks since its submission), Launched DLIRonlines first blogs, and released an already viral video to "Nikita" off of the viral #GOATEP now on YouTube and soon to launch with TH3 SLK's Vevo channel (let's catch our breathes for a moment).......But he's also been making partnerships that has him in a position as the hottest artist out & with his garnered success will be opening a studio in Atlanta, GA soon which will mark our first franchised recording studio. It is said to be a simple and intuitive solution for artists who are unfamiliar with recording, to the vets with state of the art computer based equipment creating a more open environment with less clutter. It's focus is on its price point which will make it affordable for artists to start or complete a project with pristine industry results. As part of DonLyfes push to reinvent the music industry, artists will also have our promotional packages at their disposal should they so choose to use them and take their recordings from the booth straight to the industry pros. The truth is the music industry is now a umbrella where the record labels were once one stop shops and have been phased out by their outsources who now offer their services to artists directly. We are a part of that cuff only we focus on individual promotion and not sales. Being run by an artist, DonLyfe has an unfair advantage in this field and looks to have as much longevity as TH3 SLK's music......Timeless & Forever
In this weeks development, TH3 SLK's fan base has grown enormously with fans from the U.S. to the UK following and interacting with TH3 SLK & his music via Twitter & Instagram. This comes at the perfect time for TH3 SLK & his team as they are set to release his first major industry single to DJ's & media
THE FUTURE OF DONLYFE With the thrust of energy garnered from online presence and interaction with fans TH3 SLK is now slated to release his first major league single to the masses. But what does that mean for DonLyfe? Is the company going to be left in the dust? Quite the contrary. With DonLyfe created by TH3 SLK, he was able to take his career from unsigned unknown to the next big thing. Most artists build parks & recreation centers as a way of giving back but TH3 SLK is upping the Anty. He has partnered with Eloi Ortega to form the new DonLyfe International Records. We will offer artists custom packages broken down for that artist individually and help them gain the same major support from their brand as TH3 SLK did. TH3 SLK will be hands on with the artists and label so never fear, DonLyfe is here to stay and we are going to change the music industry one artist at a time!!
