Compton, CA – Slim 400 is a lucky man. The YG affiliate was shot nine times in Compton last Friday night (June 28) and rushed to St. Francis Medical Center where he underwent surgery. But according to TMZ, the “Bruisin” guest vocalist is expected to make a full recovery.
Slim was hit in his upper and lower back, jaw and the top of his head but is currently in stable condition.
On the night of the incident, multiple masked gunmen allegedly opened fire on Slim from a moving vehicle. They then hopped out of the black car and attempted to finish the job.
At the time, Slim was on the phone with his Ice Watar label business partner, Mud Dollaz. Mud was waiting for him to arrive at the studio, but he never showed so he called. The last thing Mud heard was Slim saying, “Oh shit!”
Mud reportedly heard a series of gunshots for several seconds and then a woman screaming for Slim to keep his head up, which told him he’d been shot.
