Pittsburgh Slim checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@pittsburghslim) ahead of next Tuesday’s release of his debut album ‘Tastemaker’. “What uuuuuuuuup?? So here’s what’s been going on,” Slimmie writes. “I just shot a video for my mixtape song ‘First Date’. Expect it to be posted by no later than 12-4-07. ‘Toy’ is my new single!! Hope u like it. Last week I was in my man Felli Fel’s new video for ‘Buck In Here’. I’ve been coolin’ out in LA, Orlando, and Detroit. Good times in all. And I’ve been setting up album release parties in NYC, LA, and of course the mighty 412 Pittsburgh :) U see all the sh** taking place in Pittsburgh this weekend (all listed in my shows section on my page). The big LA party is on December 4th at Element. The NYC party is pretty much invite only, but if u wanna come, message me and I will see what I can do. Sh** should be picking up real soon. Can’t wait til I come to your city. Holla at the kid when I do :)”
Toby Knapp of Hot 99.5 in Washington, DC talked to Pittsburgh Slim about Pennsylvania Football, 50 Cent’s financial tips, and the fine art of landscaping.
The interview audio, posted Thursday (September 27), has since been removed at akamai.net.
