Families United Action Network is excited to host Philly Slimm as both a speaker and musical performer during the 2019 Bubbles of Love event April 25th at Iowa State Capitol building (Westgrounds)!
Philly is no stranger to most who are actively involved in the Family Law Reform movement as he is a national leader of custodial reforms. His voice, his activism, his music, and most of all his passion earned him the June 2018 FUAN Advocate of the Month Award.
Jason Frazier a.k.a. Philly Slimm was born September 15th, 1981 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. By age 12, Jason started developing an ear for music – mimicking artists that he looked up to, such as Will Smith, Biggy, and Nas, just to name a few. With 5 older siblings, 4 brothers and 1 sister, Jason was the baby of the family; nevertheless, he was sure to leave his mark. As an early teen, Philly wrote his very first song titled “Remember me.”
By the time Jason was 19, his family had moved to Denver. There, he began to perform as a cover artist for Eminem at local bars – adopting the name Slimm. Given the fact that Jason looks a lot like the well-known rapper Eminem, at age 20, he was invited to the 2000 Grammy awards and the “Real Slim Shady” video! After being behind the scene and seeing the production process, Jason decided the sky was the limit.
Jason took an ofter to go the Big Apple in hopes of fulfilling his dreams as a rapper, adopting on the artistic name “Philly Slimm”. Eric Robb, (a longtime friend in New York) introduced Philly to Shawn W. – owner of a small record label “Platinum Entertainment”. Jason began recording and making all the right connections with MTV, BET, and more.
A year later, Jason released himself from the label. He went solo – returning to Denver to be with his family – but little did he know what was about to happen upon his return. When he arrived back in Denver, Philly was jailed due to false allegation domestic complications from his now ex-wife!
As you can imagine, this put his music career on hold for a while. Now, Philly is back and ready to hit the ground running – with numerous projects in the making. Currently, he has a new radio program called “NO EXCUSES” on Blog Talk Radio.
Recently, Philly performed and also spoke on behalf of Shared Parenting at the world's largest Shared Parenting rally in Washington DC hosted by Americans for Equal Shared Parenting, “Capitol for Kids.” He continues to speak out as he leads his local movement in Colorado, while also being one of the most significant national voices.
We are thrilled to have him here in Des Moines, Iowa to perform and speak on this important issue! We hope that you will join us and BRING YOUR BUBBLES!
