It focuses not on his success, but more so walking out of his darkest hours and confronting his failures.

Slaine returns with a brand new eight track EP, Slaine is Dead.  It focuses not on his success, but more so walking out of his darkest hours and confronting his failures. In a career marked by dark lyricism and introspection this project is both, but also finds Slaine exploring hope, faith and courage. He never abandons his roots, but gives us a new perspective on old themes. He vividly depicts the life of a drug dealer on "Pusher", shares his drive since childhood to make his mark on "Legendary" and ultimately finds salvation on "Coming Home".  He calls on long time friends and collaborators, Vinnie Paz, Ill Bill, Statik Selektah, Termanology, Demrick DJ Eclipse and Rite Hook for support on the record, and adds an unlikely collaboration with vocalist, Jared Evan. With the help of fellow executive producer and beat-smith, The Arcitype, Slaine Is Dead has achieved a sound that is gritty, polished, and moving; and despite the EP’s title, this project marks a true and definitive rebirth for Slaine.
