Soulja Slim, whose real name is James Tapp, has passed away at the age of 25 from gunshot wounds Wednesday evening. Reports show that he was shot several times as he was getting out of a car in front of his mother's house on Lafaye Street. New Orleans Police Department have issued a statement saying that he was the intended victim of the crime, however motive for this violent event is still unknown.
Soulja Slim was signed to Master P's No Limit Records Label. His last album, "The Streets Made Me", was released in 2001. His lyrics often spoke of drugs, gangs and shootings and it is sad to see that those lyrics of violence have come true.
Our condolences and deepest sympathies go out to his family.
