Early life[edit] Slim Thug
Slim Thug
grew up in Houston's Northside neighborhood of Homestead/Scenic Woods. Slim says that his rap name came from the fact that as a teenager, he was very tall and lanky before he filled out.[citation needed] He stands 6'6" tall. The Thug part comes from people's assumptions of him due to his cornrows and sunglasses.[citation needed] At age 17, he performed freestyle raps at local high school parties. He began his rap career with Swishahouse in the late 1990s. After realizing how much money he could make distributing his own mixtapes, he parted ways with Swishahouse on good terms and formed his own independent label, Boss Hogg Outlawz.[2] Thomas bought two record stores and worked in real estate.[1] Music career[edit] Already Platinum
