New Orleans detectives said that the alleged assailant in the murder of No Limit recording artist Soulja Slim was paid for the killing.
Garelle Smith allegedly received $10,000 for killing the 26-year-old rapper, whose given name was James Tapp.
Slim was shot three times in the face and once in the chest as he crossed his front lawn toward the door of his home on November 26 shortly before 6pm.
Authorities on Tuesday booked Smith with first-degree murder after ballistics tests allegedly linked him to the murder.
Police state that they had information that Smith killed Soulja Slim with a .40 caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol that he allegedly stole from the home of a New Orleans police officer. Ballistics tests determined that the stolen gun was used in the killing.
