Slim 400, a rapper closely affiliated with West Coast star YG, was shot over the weekend outside a recording studio several times but expected to make a full recovery. In new details uncovered by TMZ, it appears the gunmen attempted to finish the job.

TMZ reports:

Sources close to the rapper tell us … Slim was on the phone with his Ice Watar label business partner, Mud Dollaz, Friday night in Compton when the shooting occurred.

We’re told Mud called Slim to check in because he was waiting for him at the studio, and the last thing he heard the rapper say was “oh sh*t.”

After that, our sources say Dollaz heard a series of gunshots for several seconds … and then a female voice screaming for Slim to keep his head up, so he knew he’d been hit.

Eyewitnesses on the scene tell us the people who shot at the rapper drove by in a black vehicle spraying bullets, but then actually stopped and jumped out to shoot more at 400 before getting back in to drive away. We’re told they were wearing masks.

The outlet adds that SLim 400 was shot nine times, taking blows to the jaw, top of his head, and back.

NBA YoungBoy was the target of an attempt on his life during a drive-by shooting that injured his girlfriend and cost a Hertz employee his life during Rolling Loud in Miami earlier this month. The Louisiana rapper and his record label, Atlantic Records, are offering to cover the funeral expenses for the slain man.


The Blast
reports:

Sources tell us NBA and Atlantic Records want to cover the funeral expenses for 43-year-old Mohamad Jradi, who died earlier this month during an attempt on the hip-hop star’s life.

Jradi was a Hertz rental car employee who unfortunately got caught in the spray of bullets when the hip-hop star and his entourage were targeted while exiting the Trump International Beach Resort Miami on their way to the Rolling Loud Music festival.

Along with Mohamad’s death, three others were injured in the shooting, including YoungBoy’s girlfriend and a 5-year-old boy.

We’re told Atlantic and YoungBoy are “heartbroken” over Jradi becoming a victim, and want to do anything they can to comfort the family.

NBA YoungBoy is currently in jail for a possible parole violation after taking to social media to declare revenge over the shooting attempt.

Offset will need to keep his head on a swivel after a drive-by shooting occurred late Wednesday (May 9) night. The Migos rapper was unarmed and an investigation appears to be ongoing.

TMZ reports:

An Atlanta studio where Offset was recording got peppered with bullets Wednesday night in a drive-by shooting.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops responding to the shooting at the Crossover Entertainment Group studio Wednesday night were told by witnesses that Offset was there recording when the shots were fired into the building. Officers responded, but Offset was long gone by the time they arrived.

At least one witness felt the Migos rapper might have been the target of the shooting. So far, we’re told cops have not spoken to Offset, but they’ll likely reach out to him as they investigate.

Check out the video of the shooting below.

The memorial service for the late Nipsey Hussle appeared to unite the city of Los Angeles and its surrounding areas as family and fans mourned the slain rapper.  During the funeral procession, reports of a drive-by shooting were put out, leaving one person dead and three others injured.


The Blast
reports:

LAPD Chief Michel Moore announced the shooting Thursday night; 3 men and 1 woman had been shot. One victim died, although it’s unclear if it was one of the men or the woman.

Moore said, “We must stop this senseless violence.” The sentiment was expressed by him and other community leaders during the news conference after Hussle’s death.

The shooting did not occur on the actual procession route, which was lined by thousands of people following Hussle’s casket after leaving the Staples Center, but was nearby.

No suspects have been announced and the names of the victims were not released as of this morning.

Prosecutors Request That NBA YoungBoy’s Probation Be Revoked

For the second time within a year’s time, prosecutors are seeking to have probation revoked in the case of Baton Rouge rapper NBA YoungBoy.

YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was sentenced to three years probation with a ten year suspended sentence in a 2016 drive-by shooting in Baton Rouge.

After his most recent arrest in Atlanta on February 11, prosecutors in his Louisiana case are asking that Gaulden be made to serve the suspended time.

YoungBoy’s lawyer offered a statement to the press, saying “An arrest is simply an allegation. Our position is he didn’t do anything wrong.” His lawyer are seeking to keep his current probation agreement in tact.

TheSource.com will update you on this story as it develops.
