Heartbroken fans flooded his latest Instagram post with tributes.

‘RIP bro I f**ked with you. Solid individual. May your legacy live on and prayers to your family,’ another replied.

‘Damn prayer going up for your family bro,’ a follower said.

As an Instagram user added: ‘Brooo this hurts man rip king.’

Slim was rushed to hospital two years ago after he was shot multiple times while in Compton.

‘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 during an interview in the weeks after his ordeal. ‘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.’

Slim was born in Germany but moved to LA as a child, and was raised in Compton.

He was later discovered by Pu$haz Ink music label and dropped his first album Foe Black, in 2015.

His latest offering came earlier this year, with the release of BompTTon.
