Slaine is a storyteller. For years, the rogue Bostonian
has exhaled eloquent and gritty tales through hip
hop, wrestling demons as an acclaimed solo rapper,
and among fellow nihilists in La Coka Nostra.
Concurrently, he’s channeled his roller coaster life
experience through dialogue, carrying memorable
roles in a trio of the most celebrated dark dramas in
the past decade – Gone, Baby, Gone (2007);
The Town (2010); Killing Them Softly (2012).
At every turn, Slaine has shared key scenes with
heavy weights including Brad Pitt, Jon Hamm, Ben
Affleck, and Jeremy Renner.
Slaine’s third official solo LP, The King Of Everything
Else, boasts blessings from Ill Bill, Vinnie Paz, Tech
N9ne, Madchild of Swollen Members, Bishop
Lamont, Apathy, Jaysaun, Termanology, Reks, and
The Arcitype, and is predominately produced by
longtime Slaine collaborator Lu Balz. Also tagging
along are some of Boston hip hop’s younger aces,
including Rite Hook and Moroney.
