Rest in Peace Young Slo-Be.
On Friday (September 2), popular Bay Area media outlet, Thizzler on the Roof, released the posthumous music video for “Pony” by slain Stockton, California recording artist Young Slo-Be to accompany his new album, Southeast, out now, via KoldGreedy Entertainment/Thizzler On The Roof. Young Slo-Be was shot and killed last month in Manteca, California. He was 29 years old.
On “Pony,” directed by Tyrese Johnson, which sampled the Ginuwine classic hit, Slo-Be politics with the crew while he exhibits charismatic lyricism over the signature style, beautiful women, and colorful graphics. “Pony” was shot mere weeks before his untimely death in Los Angeles.
Southeast was released during a time when the late rapper was steadily rising in his career after releasing three projects in 2021. Passion of Weiss on Young Slo-Be and his last album: “‘Southeast’ is a testament to Young Slo-Be’s dexterity, working with new producers and challenging himself with sample-based beats.”
“Young Slo-Be was a genuine and humble person with the personality and work ethic of a star,” shares Matt Werner, Founder and CEO of Thizzler On The Roof. “It’s painful knowing he was doing the right things and was about to make a huge change in his life when he passed. His future was so bright just a day before, and we were just getting started. We’re going to keep it lit for him.”
