Slim 400, West Coast Rapper, Shot and Killed in LA at 33

Hip-hop artist (born Vincent Cohran) was gunned down in Inglewood on Wednesday, TMZ reports

Rapper Slim 400, whose real name is Vincent Cohran, was shot and killed in Inglewood on Wednesday. He was 33.

Inglewood police said officers were in the area patrolling when the sound of gunfire was heard.  Officers responded and discovered Cohran on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound.  

Emergency medical aid was provided to Cohran, who was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. 

“This incident is under investigation as our homicide detectives are actively gathering evidence and seeking witnesses to this crime,” the Inglewood police said in a statement.

TMZ first reported the news.

Back in 2019, Slim was shot nine times on his own block in Compton. Remarkably, that time, he left the hospital 15 days later.

Watch the rapper detail that shooting in the below video.

Cohran was born in Germany to military parents. He moved to Compton as a baby. Cohran joined the Tree Top Pirus gang at 13, which is roughly around the same time he began to dabble in hip-hop.

Readers can learn more about Slim 400 — and Vincent Cohran — from the long version of that Vlad TV interview. Cohran’s daughter was on set for the interview.
