YG is yet to comment on the shooting.

It comes just over two years after Slim 400 was shot eight times in his hometown of Compton, California.

He was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital at the time where he underwent surgery before he eventually recovered from the shooting.

Following that incident, he said: “I just feel like when you meant to be here and God have a plan for you, it ain’t no stoppin’ it.”

“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…. I just feel like I’m blessed just to be here ’cause I could have just died then and there.”

The rapper was best known for the track ‘Bruisin’ with longtime affiliate YG and Sad Boy Loko.
