Rapper Slim 400 remains in "critical but stable condition," according to a statement to Billboard from his management on Monday morning (July 1).

The rapper was shot eight times. He then underwent several surgeries, all of which were successful, a rep confirmed to Billboard. He is expected to make a full recovery.

"After multiple surgeries, Slim is resting. He is in critical but stable condition and we are truly thankful for that. Slim's family and friends remain by his side and greatly appreciate the continued prayers and support," the 31-year-old's team relayed. "He is a family man, a father, a community man, and a uniquely talented artist with a greater purpose. Slim[']s family is overwhelming[ly] thankful for every call, every positive thought, and every prayer."

TMZ first reported that Slim was shot eight times on Friday night (June 28) in Compton, California. He was then reportedly rushed to a local Los Angeles hospital after police received a call regarding an altercation that took place around 8:30 p.m. PT, according to the site's sources.

Billboard has reached out to the LAPD for comment.
