Slaine’s Own ‘Boston Project’

Hip hop MC and actor Slaine.

Hip hop MC and actor Slaine.

The Boston hip hop artist George Carroll, better known as Slaine was born in Dorchester. He describes his childhood as “normal,” but his adolescence was shaped by a tough life in the streets — which gave him plenty of material for his music.

“The Boston Project” is his second album — and an ode to the city that raised him — sometimes with a hard hand.
