Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family and friends.
While there is a raging gang war between the bloods and the crips, law enforcement officials told TMZ that Slim’s murder did not seem to be a targeted hit, but rather a case of “wrong place, wrong time.”
The artist’s death was originally reported via cryptic Twitter post by popular hip-hop podcast “No Jumper,” and unsettling fan-shot footage of the taped-off murder scene are already making the rounds on YouTube. The suspect can be seen approaching the driver’s side of the car, where Slim was situated, with a revolver in his hand.
A flash and a gunshot can be heard in the clip, while Slim charges at the perpetrator. As the “Bruisin” singer and the shooter make their way down the street, gunshots continue to ring out.
As reported by NBC News, police have yet to apprehend a suspect, and investigators are interrogating the rapper’s family members, looking for witnesses, and collecting evidence.
The Compton rapper released a music video for his single “Caviar Gold,” a love poem to cannabis, only hours before the shooting and after the hip-hop musician paid respect to fellow rapper and collaborator Young Dolph, who was shot and died last month while visiting a bakery in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.
Slim 400 almost averted death in the summer of 2019 when he was “ambushed” and shot nine times while visiting his family in Compton. He survived the injuries after undergoing surgery.
