Ryan Wolf and SleazyWorld talked about a lot. Of note, Ryan was interested in hearing how Sleazy felt about being selected as one of XXL’s freshmen of the year. “It was a big moment for me,”, Sleazy commented.

When Ryan asked about what made SleazyWorld want to rap, he replied, “I always, like, had a thing for music. What really made me want to take things serious in rap, it was more like things I was going through… But once I found out I could make music, and like, relate to it, that type of time. It was like, yeah, I’ma get into this.”
