Daily Inspiration: Meet Slick Guruzee

Today we’d like to introduce you to Slick Guruzee.

Slick, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
What’s a good family? I’m Slick Guruzee, an independent music artist and clothing entrepreneur originally from Pittsburgh, PA but now residing in Los Angeles, California. I’ve been pretty much-making music for as long as I can remember.

As a kid, I gained I was pretty popular amongst friends and family and gained the nickname “Lil Slick”. Soon after, I began rapping in my city with some of my close friends calling ourselves “M.O.E”. Aside from rap we were just ordinary kids from an impoverished neighborhood trying to have fun and make a way out for ourselves. We had a lot of fun but at the same time, we knew we needed better.

As time went on I started to understand the industry a bit more. I realized how important it was to market and brand yourself. Aside from being 6 foot 2 and getting older, I understood that I had to change my name from “Lil slick” to “Slick Guruzee” And create my clothing line “Guruzee clothing”. My main goal with doing this was to help people who either saw my clothing or heard my music remember who I was.

Since then, I’ve become a staple name in my city as I continue to make progress in achieving my dreams.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Success is never easy! Throughout my entire journey, I’ve encountered many trials and tribulations including but not limited to lonely nights, creative blocks, budgeting issues, etc. When dealing with these issues, you must remember your end goal.

You have to realize that anything worth achieving will put you through some of your worst days and nights, but once you finally achieve whatever it is you were chasing, there is no better feeling. Never give up!

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m an independent rapper and clothing entrepreneur. One thing that I pride myself on the most is being original and being able to be empathetic towards other people’s situations while making music.

Many of the topics/lifestyles found in my music can visually be seen through my clothing and that’s one of the things I’m most proud of. Being able to use art as a way to display feelings and emotions.

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
Watch the company you keep and always show love to those who show love to you! That love will always come back to you in abundance just like how Karma will come to you if you treat people poorly.
