James Adarryl Tapp, Jr. (9 September 1977 - 26 November 2003), better known by his stage name Soulja Slim, was an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He signed to No Limit Records in the late 1990s and released two albums on the label, Give It 2 'Em Raw in 1998 and The Streets Made Me in 2001. He then set up his own label, Cut Throat Committy Records, on which he released two albums. In 2003, he collaborated with Juvenile for the hit song "Slow Motion", and as the song was released after Soulja Slim's death he became only the sixth artist to have a posthumous No. 1 song.

On Thanksgiving Eve in 2003, Tapp was fatally shot four times by an unknown gunman on the front lawn of his mother's home in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans.
