Houston rapper Slim Thug returns with the fourth part in his Hogg Life series, American King. Following his 2015 trilogy (The Beginning, Still Surviving, and Hustler of the Year), the 15-track collection features guest appearances by frequent collaborator Z-Ro, Boosie Badazz, Nikki Lactson, and XO. With his distinctive deep voice, Thug incorporates laid-back contemporary production atop his usual Dirty South-meets-G-Funk sound. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
