Jon Caramanica of the Boston Phoenix caught up with Slug who says his music might make him the first “VH1 rapper.” Slug says, “I think a lot of the stuff I do is still safe and innocent enough to not really offend anybody but still be different. It could be pop. It’s just a matter of timing. I know that. I know verse/chorus/verse, how to build a bridge, word association. I’ve studied this sh**. It’s just timing. I want to be the first rapper on VH1 with a good song. We’re going to make rap music for 28-year-old white women.” The full story at bostonphoenix.com has since been removed.
