Slim's Family Ties, And How He Got His Name

Slim The Mobster: "XV, the kid with the green backpack, that’s my cousin. My other little cousin is Mic Phenom. He’s really big on the Grind Time Now, rap battle circuit. [The name “Slim The Mobster”] came from an older lady. I used to sell drugs out her house and her name was Slim. After probably like a year, I became Slim.

"Everybody was like, ‘Oh that’s Slim’s son. What up Slim!’ I just added the “mobster” later on. I was a youngster. I’ve known [infamous L.A. kingpinFreeway Ricky Ross] since I was a kid. He helped raise me around the second time he came home and was doing Street Institute and all those things."
