D’Juan Hunter, more commonly known as Julio Slim, is an ambitious artist from the South Eastern border of Washington, D.C. and Maryland. From a young age, Slim was exposed to music that he would carry with him throughout his life. When he was just seven years old his father, D’Juan Hunter, Sr., had him listening to a plethora of rappers such as: Redman, Scarface and Jay-Z. His father gifted to him his first two rap albums, Eric B. and Rakim’s “Paid In Full” and A Tribe Called Quest’s “The Low End Theory.” Conversely, his mother completed his musical balance by playing artists such as: Lauryn Hill, India Arie and Jill Scott.

In 2014, after the incarceration of his father, Slim decided to take his passion serious by recording in the studio for the first time. Since then, he has released numerous singles and two albums. In 2017, he released his first album entitled, “Juanderin…Choose Your Destiny.” Later, in 2019, he released his second project, “And Then There Was Juan” which included the stand-out single “Outro.” He followed up his sophomore effort by releasing two singles, “Callin’” and “Pillow Talk.”
