Intrepid is an artist from Chicago, Illinois, who went through a lot of obstacles to get to where he is now. He started making music when he was at his ex-best friend’s house where they were listening to his music and he was sparked by the thought of writing a song by himself, as he was previously a YouTube gamer and animator and wanted to try something new. They went ahead and made a song called Champion. Everything looked fine until the hate started rising because of the controversy his friend was in. Problems then occurred behind the scenes which caused Intrepid to take a break. While in his break from music, Intrepid talked with a good friend (now Intrepid’s manager and producer) Smok3 Santana, who convinced him to get back in the industry. He even offered him a record label deal! Smok3 Santana and Intrepid have recently released a new song called Confess, which is available on YouTube and SoundCloud and soon on other major platforms!

The album was completely produced by Chris Cadence, who is Slim Rig’s personal producer. The meaning behind the title of the project is there are always two sides to every story. Every story and situation is different unless you walked in those shoes personally. Slim Rig has shown his creative side but not only that but he has some deeper messages behind each song. Currently due to the Pandemic that has continued to put a halt on live performances in the Jersey area, Slim plans to finish up a few more official music videos for a few of the records on the album. This is a project that you should listen to from the intro to the end.
