Artist Interview - Sleek The Elite: Rap Battler

Sleek The Elite 'Hard For A Rapper'Every rapper knows it’s a jungle out there, just ask Sleek The Elite.

As he prepares to release his long-awaited third album, the Sydney MC and actor looks back to where it all began and the road he’s walked to get where he is today.

“Life was pretty tough on me for a bit with bad situations I was in but what I’m trying to do, and I think I’ve succeeded, is turn all that negative shit into a force of energy,” says Sleek.

“If I didn’t, the pain would have consumed me and there wouldn’t have been any more Sleek as you know it. I’m not saying I wouldn’t be here anymore, but I wouldn’t be here in the same capacity.”

Where Volume I exuded an air of easy-going, late-night cool, ‘The Evolution Continues’ delves into the darker realms of electronica. Boasting 28 tracks over two CDs, this album is not so much a journey as it is an outer body, astral trip accompanied by a consciousness-altering soundtrack.

From first track to last, this is evolution on a scale that would shock Darwin himself.
