Born in Central London Charlie Sloth has been bubbling on the underground scene in England in many different guises since he was 17. Growing up in Camden Town, Sloth found himself in slightly more compromising situations than the average teenager. With a background deep rooted in criminal activity however, he breaks Rap music’s sometimes common association with gangs & crime choosing not to glamorise it.
Age 10, Sloth ‘picked up’ NWA’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ on cassette – it would be his first and most important taste of Rap music and Hip Hop culture. At 13, being the chubby kid who should have been put in goal, picked on for his lunch and always the last to run when in trouble, he soon earned the name ‘Sloth’ from his peers.
Charlie began mimicking his favourite raps, giving him the confidence and presence to play down the taunts and embrace the name as his own. Charlie Sloth isn’t your stereotypical rap artist; if he’s killed anyone, he’s not rapping about it.
