Throughout the video Slim has chosen to stay anonymous, wearing full black and remaining masked. Blog Preston have been told this was to ensure viewers had no pre-conception as to Slims identity in his first video.
Producers of the video Sicario said: “Artist Slim wanted to remain anonymous in his first video as his physical appearance does not necessarily suggest he is in fact of mixed race heritage, with his grandfather being part of the Windrush generation.”
