Compton rapper and former YG associate Slim 400 was reportedly shot and killed in the Los Angeles area on Wednesday, Dec. 8. He was 33.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the aspiring rapper was gunned down in Inglewood, California. He was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.
Slim was a member of the Tree Top Pirus street gang which he allegedly joined when he was 13 years old.
He survived a previous attempt on his life when he was shot 9 times in the summer of 2019. His last Instagram Story is a track featuring him and the late rapper Young Dolph on a tombstone.

Wow man, ResIn Peace to Slim 400. Another devastating loss for the Rap community. Our culture’s undying commitment to the violence that was forced on Black people has to change!

Use to be front page news when an artist was died, but today, we’re losing a rappers monthly to violence or health issues. Just in 2021:DMX, Black Rob, Shock G, Biz Markie, Dolph, now Slim400..not to mention the 20 & unders like BabyCEO, 18Veno, Lil Loaded & on & on. It’s sad.
