Slim Man's Background
Slim Man was born a long time ago. How long? Real long. He started off as Slim Boy, and later became Slim Man.
But seriously, folks...Slim's hometown is Baltimore, MD. His first musical memory? His Dad, the Slim Poppa, took him to see a movie "The Five Pennies", starring Danny Kaye and...Louis Armstrong. When Young Slim saw Louis sing and play, Slim Boy decided, at the tender age of five, that that was his Life's Calling.
