Rapper Slim 400 dies aged 33 after LA shooting

Rapper and musician Slim 400, real name Vincent Cohran, has died at the age of just 33.
As reported by TMZ, the Compton-based rapper was shot and killed during a firefight in Inglewood, an area towards the southwest of Los Angeles, California.

Cohran was actually born in Germany before moving to the US as a child in Compton: a city with an iconic background in music - most notably, hip-hop and R&B.
