Kansas City Phenom Sleazyworld Go Pays Homage to DMX in New Single & Music Video “WTW”

Rapidly rising Kansas City Hip Hop disruptor SleazyWorld Go unleashes a scorching new single and music video entitled “WTW” via Island Records.

Multiplatinum powerhouse producer Turbo [Travis Scott, Young Thug, Lil Baby] cooked up an ominous soundscape for the track. It revolves around an instantly recognizable sample of the DMX classic “What They Really Want.” In between anxious hi-hats and punchy 808s, SleazyWorld Go ignites a lyrical flurry punctuated by braggadocious bars and the immortal question, “What they really want?” The accompanying visual brings the tune to life in cinematic fashion on screen. Delivering a fitting homage to DMX and passing the torch, SleazyWorld Go pulls up with Ruff Ryders’ Waah in Yonkers, NY.

“WTW” arrives on the heels of recent releases including “Got Me Hot.” The latter has garnered nearly 12 million streams while the music video has tallied 3.2 million views alone. Beyond plugs from XXL, HITS Daily Double, and more, HotNewHipHop promised, “SleazyWorld brings all of the energy to this cut,” going on to rave, “He is certainly a name to watch in the next couple of years.”

In other news, SleazyWorld Go is currently opening for Offset on the “Set It Off” Tour across North America. Following shows in Philadelphia, PA and New York, NY, he heads to Los Angeles, CA for a show on March 29. He then wraps the tour in Atlanta, GA on April 10, with performances in several other major cities along the way.

Breakout rapper SleazyWorld Go earned his latest in a series of accolades earlier this summer with the announcement that he was selected as a 2023 XXL Freshman; the first artist to represent both Kansas City, MO, and Grand Rapids, MI, on the prestigious magazine cover. Since then, he’s made an appearance at the 2023 BET Awards, released the anthemic “Don’t Get Your Feelings In It” featuring fellow XXL Freshman Luh Tyler, and has been in the studio working on his forthcoming debut album.

Stay tuned for a lot more from SleazyWorld Go soon!

SleazyWorld Go’s hot streak began in 2019, following a personal transformation behind bars. The artist whose mom moved his family from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Kansas City, Missouri, searching for a better life, wanted to move in a positive direction. Music was his method. In 2022 he took off, with “Sleazy Flow” introducing him to the masses (the song is 2x RIAA Certified Platinum), and leading to a remix featuring Lil Baby and a debut mixtape Where The Shooters Be that featured hip hop heavyweights Lil Baby, Offset, G Herbo, and more. In 2023, he expanded on WTSB with Where The Shooters Be 2, dropped “Off The Court” featuring Polo G, was announced by Spotify as an Artist To Watch in 2023, and iHeartRadio announced him as nominee for Best New Hip Hop Artist. With raw talent and proven superstar potential, it’s clear that in 2023 and beyond SleazyWorld Go’s list of accolades will only continue to grow.
