If you’ve been following the Booth lately, you’ve probably noticed that a remixed lead single is often pushed heavily right before an album’s release. Slim Thug is clearly well-acquainted with this strategy, and in anticipation of the March 24th release of sophomore album Boss of All Bosses, he’s released the official remix to hit lead single I Run (the widely-publicized “Texas Remix” flyer has been proven fake). The record’s real remix features two of H-Town’s most respected MCs. After Chamillionaire shows that, though he’s become hip-hop’s celebrity spokesman, he’s still all about that underground money, Z-Ro lets the world know that rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated. E1 Music may be taking the female-oriented approach on second single Smile, but Slim Thug hasn’t lost a single ounce of underground appeal—after all, he managed to sell a million in the Houston streets before scoring a major deal.
