CMU reports:

Rapper Soulja Slim, a protege of hip hop mogul Master P, was shot dead on Wednesday in New Orleans. The rapper, real name James Tapp, rose to prominence in the hip hop scene in 1998 with his album ‘Give It To Em Raw’, released on P’s No Limit Records. More recently he signed to Koch and enjoyed some success with ‘Years Later … A Few Months After’ earlier this year. He was shot four times as he got out of his car on his way to visit his mother. He died at the scene. No word yet on any motive for the murder.

    This is why I couldn’t agree with the young woman who said the bad reputation of hip hop comes from the media on another thread. There is far too much violence among rappers and their fans to blame the bad vibes on outsiders.

  • NAWLINZBOI

    He was the reallest rapper and coldest lyricist in Chopper City! I remember watching him in concert uptown performing with KILO G. He is the one that made Nawlinz what it is today. I shed tears because he is to New Orleans what B.I.G was to N.Y. and what pac is to Cali. I just can’t believe it now we gonna have to listen to all that bling stuff again instead of keeping it real, What about the album he was doing with B.G.?

    Man,Its one week and two years since the real soulja been dead.It hasn’t been the same knowing that he is gone.All we do in the south is rep Slim.We bump “Upstown Soulja’s”,”Years Later”,”The Streets Made Me”,and “Givin It To Em Raw”.People like the one earlier critize the wrong person.The song “Soja 4 Life” of “The Streets Made Me” wasn’t criticing the majority.He was exposing the truth.Some people didn’t like the truth.Hataz.Even though this man had money,he stayed in the Magnolia projects and hustled.He knew it would be trouble because he was shot already in 95 so he kept heat.Unlike 50 cent,he still was Gettin Rich and he Died Tryin.R.I.P. James Tapp aka (magnolia)Soulja Slim

    R.I.P James D. Tapp AkA Magnolia Slim BkA Soulja Slim ya dig! R.I.P Chris Handy AkA Lil’Handy BkA Baton Rouge Soulja. Check this if you real, and u listen to real shit then you felt the same way i felt on November 26, 2003. I heard about the senseless killing the same night, and I stay in baton rouge ya dig. I feel like soulja slim was a very influencial voice in the ghetto slums of New Oleans, Baton Rouge, and damn near the whole south. There will not have another slim ever. People can imatate it but can never duplicate it. Real talk. But there will be more influencial voices coming from the botton of the map, believe that. Thats how we live down here. Thats how we raised. Always taught 2 keep it real. Close ya mouth and open ya ears. ya know, shit like that. Niggas be talking dis and that, come down here Shit real and slim just another product of the south. He handle his like a straight G!!!!!!!!!!! RIP NIgGA

    Soulja Slim is the hardest nigga to ever touch the MIC. I dont give a fuck what anybody has to say. He was’nt one of them “FUCK NIGGAZ” alwayz lying about his life. If yall want that kinda music go to one of these rap niggas. It will be heard daily. I will keep the real niggas alive.
