Rapper Slim 400’s Murder Is Being Investigated As Gang-Related Amid Bloods & Crips Turf War

Police in Inglewood, California, are reportedly investigating the deadly shooting of rapper Slim 400 as “gang-related reprisal,” since “things have really ramped up between the blood and the crips, so emotions are already high.”

On Wednesday, shortly before 8 p.m., a 33-year-old emerging West Coast hip-hop musician, actual name Vincent Cohran, was shot and killed in Inglewood, California.

It’s not clear if this was a targeted killing, but law enforcement authorities say they still suspect the shooting to be gang-related, which almost invariably indicates retribution.

As a result of his claimed connections to the Bloods, a source informed MM, “they believe Slim happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Officials have validated disturbing footage of a deadly encounter, which reveals an armed lone gunman going up a driveway towards the rapper’s vehicle.

He made his presence known to the rapper who was caught unawares by greeting him; “what’s up brah brah!”

At this point, Slim 400 grabbed the gun in what is being called “death grip” but did not move it away from his body and when the gunman opened fire, it was all over.

Slim 400 can be seen being dragged on the ground while the man continues to fire bullets into him indiscriminately and then kicks him while trying to get him to let go of the gun. At this point the rapper can be seen slumped on the ground!

The LA County Fire Department brought him to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for “emergency traumatic treatment,” where he was declared dead.

The Inglewood Police Department now plans to increase its street presence in order to deter a wave of copycat gang crimes.

Meanwhile, Slim 400’s fans continue to pay their condolences online, with some recognising him as a leader in the community.

The hip-hop site Passion of the Weiss’ Twitter account paid tribute to Slim 400 by posting the message “RIP Slim 400.” One of the most important figures in the history of gangster hip-hop from Compton, he was an ambassador for the tradition, the lineage, and the history of gangsta rap.”

An “ambush” and 9 shots were fired at Slim 400 in the summer of 2019 when he was visiting his relatives. In the face of a barrage of drive-by gunfire, a member of Slim’s family sacrificed their own lives to save him.

At the time, the rapper said, “I just feel like when you intended to be here and God have a purpose for you, there ain’t no stoppin’ it.”

“I thought everything was ended when I fell to the ground. My relatives came out, saved my life, talked to me, and dragged me into the house while they were still firing at me…. She saved my life, and I’m very grateful to her and my family. Then was a time when I could have died right there and then, but I’m so grateful to be here now.”

Slim was born Vincent Cohran on June 21, 1988, in Frankfurt, Germany, the son of military parents who returned to the United States when he was just a few years old.

As part of YG (Young Gangsta) and DJ Mustard’s Pu$haz Ink music label, which teamed with the likes of Travis Scott in 2016, he was found and signed.

Slim 400 has a daughter, Parris, who was born on March 17, 2009.
