ABOUT SLY WATTS: Nathan Watts, also known as Sly Watts, is a 17 year old hip hop artist, producer, and visual artist originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. Although he participated in talent shows during middle school, Sly began performing at teen open mics at 15 years old while enrolled at the International High School of New Orleans. Since graduating early in 2015, he has been developing an EP titled "Live From the Psyche" as his debut self-release. Being a self-proclaimed "Lone Wolf" and "Weirdo," Sly uses the arts as a medium to represent people who have grown up feeling as though they were out-casted for their intelligence, their way of speaking, and their appreciation for art and knowledge. He also uses his art and music to promote free-thinking, self-awareness, self-peace, and autonomy. His music is created with the intentions of escaping from stress and to enlighten listeners on his political ideologies and philosophy on life
