StayUp.News editor-in-chief Roberto E. Alejandro recently sat down for a phone conversation with Sugar Tongue Slim (aka STS, right in the courtesy photo above) about his new acoustic EP, “Better on a Sunday,” with Khari Mateen (left). In our discussion, STS talks about how he and Mateen came to work together, the influence of the Dungeon Family on Hip-Hop, and the importance of new experiences for growth as an artist.
