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.
