Sugar Tongue Slim, aka STS, dropped his debut full-length album earlier this year featuring collabos from Yelawolf, Farnsworth Bentley, Tony Williams and more, along with production by Ski Beatz, Alchemist, Will Power and Emile.

Consequenceofsound.net describes the LP:

"The 16-track effort acts as a manifesto for STS's chosen moral code, one he's summed up with the acronym G.O.L.D.: GentleMen of Leisure & Development. Catchiness aside, it's a righteous path where changing the world for the better and being an expressive person goes hand-in-hand with being an emotionally-vacant materialist.

"From the wacky and informative "The Interview" to the bumping personal diary entry of "WWW", STS can be both wise, weary wordsmith and ghetto fabulous pimp almost simultaneously. Expressions across the emotional spectrum– from the sweet and wholesome trod of "Hello Sunshine" to the resilient and anthemic "Here Tonight" and even the comedic gem that is "Gold Mayfield Skit"– are all equally at home and with shared levels of relevance.

"Though the album bounces back and forth in terms of general worldview, STS's inventive rhymes and ultra-shiny swagger form the glue that holds the LP together."
