New York rap artist Slayter is the self-proclaimed, “tour guide to the underworld of New York City,” and his long-awaited EP, COLD AT NIGHT dropped today!

The MC was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Dyckman. His latest single is the title song from his debut Cinematic Music Group EP, COLD AT NIGHT. The hard-knock track, “COLD AT NIGHT,” features his contemporary, G Herbo. Together, the rappers delivered their somber truths about a vendetta against their enemies. “COLD AT NIGHT,” was premiered on Ebro’s Beats 1 radio show, and the “COLD AT NIGHT,” music video unleashed via WorldStarHipHop yesterday.

Prior to this, Slayter gained the attention of Jonny Shipes, founder, and CEO of independent hip-hop label Cinematic Music Group. Additionally, the indie star began working closely with Gabriel “Gaby” Acevedo — the Bronx legend responsible for managing the careers of top-tier lyricist like French Montana. With creative guidance, Slayter has been building his arsenal and paying dues towards his legacy.

On his previous street banger, “MHM,” Slayter gave a gritty glimpse of his stomping grounds over the track’s cannabis-induced production. The bass-rattling earworm propelled the anthemic momentum Slayter is well-known for throughout the independent-circuit. All the long hours in the studio are paying off because today Slayter makes his proper introduction to mainstays of the industry with his grandiose poetic, COLD AT NIGHT.

“This is an honest project! COLD AT NIGHT is me putting everything in front of the world. Coming from street hardships — I experienced losing loved ones, genuine love and betrayal. All these circumstances are lyrically encompassed on my EP. I wanted to make sure I did a project that people can relate to,” Slayter affirmed.

The Knockturnal caught up with Slayter to discuss which New York hip-hop artists move him, his manifestations of a Jorja Smith collaboration, and why he thinks COLD AT NIGHT is groundbreaking within the culture. Check out our one-on-one with Slayter now.
