On Thursday (Dec. 9), news that Slim 400 was shot and killed swept through social media and many of the slain rapper’s celebrity friends have publicly sent their condolences.

As REVOLT previously reported, the deadly shooting occurred near Manchester and 7th Avenue around 8 p.m. EST on Wednesday (Dec. 8) in the Inglewood area of Los Angeles. Police officers were reportedly making rounds in the vicinity when they heard gunshots ring out. The 33-year-old was found with gunshot wounds and transported to a local hospital. He was later pronounced dead.

The tributes for Slim have begun to pour in on social media. Ty Dolla Sign took to Twitter to share a photo of himself with the slain MC. “Longlive$lim,” he tweeted.

Mozzy shared a throwback video of himself with the BompTTon spitter to his Instagram Story, while Kamiyah shared photos of herself with him and YG on her page.

Zoey Dollaz took to Twitter to send his condolences. “I tell a bitch nigga holllldddd uppppppp…RIP SLIM 400.. rest in heaven to my dawg!” he wrote.

Slim moved to Los Angeles from Germany as a young child and was raised in Compton. He was discovered by the former Pu$haz Ink music label, which earned notoriety through YG and DJ Mustard.

Back in 2019, the “Piru” rapper barely escaped death after being shot nine times while visiting his relatives in Compton. Slim previously told a Los Angeles radio station that he was “ambushed” by the drive-by shooting, however, one of his family members was able to drag him to safety.

“I just feel like when you meant to be here and God have a plan for you, it ain’t no stoppin’ it,” he said at the time. “I hit the ground thinking it was over. My family came out, kept me alive, talking to me, dragging me in the house while they still shooting… My family, love her to death for just saving me. I just feel like I’m blessed just to be here ’cause I could have just died then and there.”

Rest in peace Slim 400.
