Shawty Slim Says DJing for B.o.B is Still Surreal

Shawty Slim Says DJing for B.o.B is Still Surreal

We talked to grammy-nominated hip hop artist B.o.B's official tour DJ Shawty Slim by email while they were away on tour. He says when he's home, in Downtown Macon, walking around and visiting Washington Park is one of the best things to do. Shawty Slim got his start spinning while in school at Fort Valley State University when an unpaid internship paid off and led to a first job with Macon's WIBB 97.9.

WMAZ: Tell us about the current tour.  Where have you been?
Shawty Slim: The current tour i'm on right now with B.o.B is for his new album, Strange Clouds, that dropped on May 1st. He's told us that he want to tour the world for two years, so I'm excited that I get to be apart of the efforts to make it happen successfully.

Warner Robins Woman Sings on Chattanooga Movie Set

Lisa Hiland of Warner Robins, got the moment of a lifetime: the chance to sing on a movie set.

She sang the National Anthem on the Chattanooga set for "42" at the end of May.

Being part of a musical family and singing for most of her life, she says she was more excited than nervous about the opportunity.

She posted a video of her singing the National Anthem as part of a competition on Facebook. Hiland won by getting the most "likes" out of the videos in the competition.

Hiland says the most exciting part about the shoot was getting to dress in 1940s style.
