The Full Story
Slim Production Studios was founded by Christopher Jerry also know as (SlimPro). Slim's musical roots started when he was a little kid. He took up playing the trumpet in the middle school band, but later switched to drums because it was “cooler” and he “wanted to get the girls.”
After high school, he studied music at Northwest Community College. He sold his first “beat,” a hip-hop instrumental on MySpace, for $150 and that’s when he realized that he might have a future in the music business.
A year later, bored with college, he decided to join the Navy instead. He served as a Boatswain’s Mate aboard the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman and served until 2014.
Following the Navy, Jerry went back to college and studied IT at Strayer University in Memphis and currently works as a network engineer.
Jerry said after college he was able to put a lot more focus on his music. In 2014, he was invited to participate in the Consortium MMT (Memphis Music Town), an effort to develop local music talent and better promote the music industry in Memphis. The organization was started in 2012 by National Songwriters Hall of Fame member and Stax Records legend David Porter. The native Memphis has been active in mentoring the next generation of Memphis musicians. Jerry participated in the Soulright Music Mentorship Program which helped teach him more about the music industry and allowed him to work with established professionals with the tools to succeed.
A manager took him to Atlanta and introduced him to several hip-hop record company executives which led to jobs working with hip-hop and rap artists like Waka Flocka, and Mishon Ratliff, who appeared on the tv show Lincoln Heights.
More recently, he’s worked as a producer on songs for Paul Wall, Lil’ Flip, and Cashis, a rapper who was featured on the Shady Records album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up with Eminem.
Opening a studio has long been Slim's career goal.
