Slim Thug
Boss of All Bosses (Koch, 2009)

Boss of all Bosses is Slim Thug's official sophomore album. It was a metaphorical return home of sorts, following his spacey, brave debut album, Already Platinum. Boss was all menacing and thumping Southern-style production, a proper framework for what would come to be his most emotive album to date.

His old fans loved it; their only legitmate complaint was that the version of "I Run" on the album did not match the version that everyone fell in love with because it was missing Z-Ro and Chamillionaire's verses. His newer fans did not.

Y'allmustaforgotability: 54 percent

Boss has two songs that everybody knows: "Associates," most notable for the way it swoops into your ears at its onset and its monster Z-Ro hook, and "I Run," most notable for Yelawolf's interpretation of A Flock of Seagulls' "I Ran." Add two songs that people who appreciate honest music know - "Bitch, I'm Back" and "Welcome To Houston" - and that adds up to a low, low score here, people.

Read what Y'allmustaforgotability means.


Best Song Title on the Album: "Bitch, I'm Back":

This was the Slim's airing out song, the one where he addressed head-on the assertion that he had somehow sold out because he didn't have Mr. lee produce all of the tracks. Any time someone calls another person a bitch in a song title, you can absolutely be sure it's getting the nod here.
