Last seen serving up a heaping helping of audio crack on October’s My Specialty, DMV buzzmaker Kingpen Slim returns to our pages with his first feature of 2013. On this freshly-minted single, King Beatz’ scintillating synth arpeggios and languid percussion back the emcee as he pours his heart out to a romantic prospect, promising, “I ain’t gonna hold you back / I’m gonna Hold You Down.” Marcus Canty, the EPIC Records soul man who brought us Used by You, backs his collaborator up on the record’s hook. Has Slim succeeded in winning you over with this heartfelt rap ballad? Those leaning toward the affirmative will want to keep it locked for the latest on his next mixtape, tentatively titled The Deep End and scheduled for release sometime this fall.
