Melodic hip hop has become one of the most prominent forms of music in the past few years and there's no one doing it in Denver quite like Slouch. From catchy hooks to smooth, polished production, Slouch's sound has all the necessary ingredients to become something big, but his growth isn't complete yet. While he has already transformed his sound once (he was formerly known as P. Rose), the Mile High MC has his mind set on putting the finishes touches on his musical aesthetic in a variety of ways. Even though he may feel he has a ways to go still, the progression he has shown has been impressive already and is proof that he has the vision and work ethic it takes to reach the goals he's set for himself.

While some people have found uncomfortability in the rapid growth, Ramond has embraced the change and is looking to bring that frontier mindset with him as he expands his sound and audience.
