Before the emergence of Kendrick Lamar, Slim the Mobster was hailed as the next major West Coast artist from Los Angeles. When Slim the Mobster first caught national attention, he was known by many as the protege of both Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. Based on his location and his affiliation, immediately Slim the Mobster was compared to Game.
Ironically, Slim the Mobster ended up at odds with 50 Cent, just like Game. Since he launched his first Twitter attack against 50 Cent, Slim the Mobster has become his biggest detractor. While his dislike for 50 Cent is high, Dr. Dre is working with both he and Kendrick Lamar. Last fall, Dr. Dre announced Slim the Mobster and Kendrick Lamar as his “only” two artists.
Like the rest of the hip hop world, Slim the Mobster has been tuned into the growing story involving Shyne and Kendrick Lamar. Because Kendrick Lamar is non-confrontational, Game has stepped up for him. Everyone who spoke on what Shyne said about good kid, m.A.A.d.city agreed he was wrong. Slim the Mobster discussed the situation with Vlad TV.
