Apparently the other day Slaine posted on his Facebook page that he’d be quitting the rap game within the next 18 months to pursue his acting career. While many fans might be quick to say “what the fuck, man!” Let’s look at it from a working mans perspective…. Slaine a rapper/actor….. Music is in the shitter right now if youre selling albums which many people arent you arent making too much money off it these days, you make money off touring and merchandise which is cool but it’s a lot of work, touring. You’re away from family, wife and kids etc. for most of the year if you want to keep the dough rolling in. Now if youre an actor, either acting in feature films, tv shows, you get paid a decent amount for a few days work in a small roll. You get paid big bucks if youre in a serious roll which requires you to be away for a few months unless youre shooting in your home town and seeing that Slaine is attached to the Aflecks he could probably drive himself to work everyday and have a home cooked meal every night. So you do the math. I wanna say peace to Slaine and I wanna wish him much luck in whatever he does and here at TheCrypt we’ll keep following. Slaine if you need a cameo by a big Mexican and you cant get in touch with Trejo give me a call.
Here’s the official word,
“These tours and albums Im doing over the next 18 months will probably be my last. Im more and more into making movies and sick of touring”
