He may have to borrow, beg, and steal for this
Slim Thug used to be a hot commodity when he was rapping right alongside the biggest names in hip hop and pop like Pharrell, Mike Jones, Beyoncé, and so much more. But that was then and this is now; Slim has been trying to increase his empire by selling his fans literally anything he could find. But they weren’t buying. Slim Thug didn’t want to part with the little money that he had so he didn’t tell the federal government that he had it, and they didn’t like that very much. They’re coming for it whether he’s ready or not.
Slim’s Come Up
Slim Thug may be an imposing guy standing at six feet six inches tall, but there are definitely people out there who don’t fear him, and they’re going to take his money from his just to prove it.
He hustled for years to get his music out there and gain fame; he finally released his debut album Already Platinum in 2005 after tons of delays. Amazingly, it debuted at the number two slot on the Billboard 200. Most of his notoriety, however, came from his appearances on the songs of huge stars. He was on Beyoncé Knowles’s huge hit “Check On It” and Gwen Stefani’s “Luxurious” just to name a few.
He released solo and group albums over the next few years, but never really came back to that place of fame that he previously achieved.
Slim Thug definitely didn’t win any favor with hip hop artists in 2010 when he said, “It’s hard to find [a successful black man] so black women have to bow down and let it be known that they gotta start working hard; they gotta start cooking and being down for they man more…. white women treat they man like a king.”
Though he has been releasing new albums since that time, he really hasn’t made any waves. He’s used his former fame to launch his Boss Life company which sells everything from branded clothing to eCigars to construction services. He’s trying every which way he can to make that money. He made a few coins off of the company, but he thought that it would be a great idea to hide that income from the feds.
Guess what: It wasn’t. They’re after him for almost everything he’s got.
The IRS has filed federal liens against Stayve Thomas, your boy Slim Thug, in Texas because they said that he didn’t properly report his income from 2012 to 2016. Judging by the numbers on the Billboard charts, those were the hard years for the Houston rapper when he just wasn’t as popular on the music scene. His Boss Life business was trying out so many ways to make money, but they didn’t seem very successful in any of them.
According to the IRS, Slim Thug owes them about $310,356 in back taxes. He’s going to have to locate some cash to pay them back, or he’s in huge trouble. We’ll see if he can save himself from federal jail over this missing money.
