There’s more to the mask than meets the eye where SL is concerned. At just seventeen, the Peckham-born, Croydon-raised rapper represents a new class borne out of the cross-pollination of genres. From stories of linking girls to chilling with his boys, SL chronicles daily life as a teen growing up in south London. When he raps, it’s evident that south London is in his DNA. This early on his career, SL has shown that he doesn’t want to be confined to one pocket of sound and is continuously looking forward. In his own words, SL looks to a life beyond drill and the lifestyle that often comes with it, and through the tropical sound, he’s already imagined that reality. Through his music, SL details south London not just as he sees it –– but how he lives.
