Slim Jesus Dead Or Alive Dilemma; Rapper's Real Name & Actual Net Worth
At the height of the trend of Soundcloud rappers coming to mainstream prominence in late 2015, no other name carried the same weight and notoriety as Ohio-born rapper Slim Jesus.
In many ways, Slim represented the pinnacle of Drill Rap in the so-called Soundcloud Era. Strip away the entertainment aspect from his music; the Drill Time hitmaker was and still is an unflattering caricature of Hip-Hop as a culture.
Over the years, Slim's ascendancy to rap supremacy has lost its momentum, which has led his fans to fear the worst. Is he dead for real or alive and plotting a comeback?
Is Slim Jesus Dead Or Alive?
Rest assured, Slim Jesus' resurrection will get televised or Instagrammed!
After a prolonged absence, which had ignited the death rumors, the Buck Buck wordsmith made a return to Instagram. Would a rapper's resurgence be complete without a proper "money move?"

The day after announcing his first label deal, he set the record straight with a PSA-styled Instagram post. Draped in Louis Vuitton from head to toe, with lean on the one hand and a middle finger on the other, the accompanying caption read:
"I'm back and better than ever #AgainstAllOdds"
With his proclamation, Slim seems to have hit two birds with one stone; permanently dousing the death rumors and marking his return simultaneously.
Isn't it ironic that the guy who had once faked his death to promote an upcoming single now finds himself clearing rumors about being dead?

Controversies have become synonymous to Slim - whose real name is Easton Phillips - ever since he shot up the charts with his first single Drill Time.
The so-called Rap Purists have often questioned the authenticity of his music; the fact that he's a white man who touts firearms, albeit props, in music videos doesn't help his cause.

Call it willful ignorance or trolling, Slim, age 21, has always maintained that his lyrics didn't mirror his lifestyle. In a 2015 interview with DJ Vlad, the Warning Shot rapper - who stands at 5 foot and 8 inches(172 cm) tall - confessed:
"I Like Rapping About Guns, But I Don't Live That"
Nonetheless, Slim's violent rap lyrics has served him well. According to several reports online, the 21-year-old Drill rapper has amassed $400 thousand in net worth.
A white rapper making it big in Rap Music is rare; a white rapper who is flourishing under a sub-genre (Drill Music originated in Chicago) that's not native to his hometown is practically unheard.
And as a result, this has compelled fans to draw a parallel between Slim Jesus' musical aesthetics with that of Eminem. Interesting enough, the duo even shares an uncanny resemblance with each other.
Slim Shady's shoes may prove too big for Slim Jesus - who celebrates his birthday on 10 April every year - to fill, but as long as he's not dead, sky's is the limit.
