I was trolling the "INTERNETS" again and guess what I ran across! The vandalized Wikipedia article for Slim Thug (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slim_Thug). Apparently someone was VERY upset by Slim's Vibe.com rant (http://www.vibe.com/posts/slim-thug-black-women-need-stand-their-man-more) and decided to take action! I just so happened to have a copy of the page up when the Wikipedia folks reverted the page back to normal! So, to preserve the "integrity" of the "INTERNETS", I decided to give you what you want! LOL! Check it out! Don't worry, I didn't do it, I'm just reporting on it! LOL!

Stayve Jerome Thomas (born September 8, 1980), better known as Slim Thug, is an American rapper. He gained mainstream attention for his contribution to the popular single from rapper Mike Jones, "Still Tippin'". Afterwards, he would go on to date the ex-Destiny's Child member Letoya Luckett whom would dump him for Tank soon after.
CareerThomas grew up in Houston's Northside neighborhood of Homestead where he had to decide whether to date a black or a white woman. At age 17, he performed freestyle raps at local high school parties in South Dakota. At such parties, white women would cook and clean for him as he did his Alphabet Raps to beats produced by Soulja Boy when he hit puberty. 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. Thomas bought two record stores and worked in real estate.He would soon sign to record an album with Disney as the only male Cheetah Girl, but due to an altercation with lead singer Adrienne Bailon, he broke the contract and would release his debut album under another label.Slim Thug's debut album with Interscope Records, Already Platinum, was released in July 2005 after many delays. It premiered on #2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and sold 130,000 copies in its first week. Singles included "Like a Boss", "3 Kings" (featuring T.I. and Bun B), and "I Ain't Heard of That" (featuring Pharrell and Bun B). Slim Thug appeared on Beyoncé Knowles's #1 single "Check on It" and Gwen Stefani's "Luxurious". With the Boss Hogg Outlawz, Slim Thug released three albums, Boyz N Blue (2004), Serve & Collect (2007) and Back by Blockular Demand: Serve & Collect II(2008). He left Interscope Records in 2008. Slim Thug's second solo album Boss of All Bosses was released in 2009. It included the single "I Run".According to MTV News, Lupe Fiasco's video for "Hip Hop Saved My Life" was based on Slim Thug's life story. "It is based on Thug boss cause he is so G, and inspires me," Fiasco revealed.In October 2009 he appeared on The Daily Show, in a parody discussing the effects of the recession upon wealthy rappers such as himself.  The skit was filmed in part at The Lion's Den Recordings in Houston, Texas, located behind the trap house of Paul Wall.
Break-Up With LetoyaIn late 2007, Letoya's clothing line, Lady Love, had only been sold in shopping malls in the Houston area, usually next to a Citi Trends or Ross Dress for Less. Slim Thug and Letoya got into a scuffle after Letoya was phoned by her friend, Latavia, and she revealed that Slim Thug had been stealing money from the cash register. Letoya Luckett decided to end the relationship with Slim Thug, and Letoya would then go on to date singer Tank. Letoya would soon release her single Regret that featured Ludacris, which was about Slim Thug.Slim Thug reported to Seventeen Magazine in their Winter 2007 issue that he had been scarred by Letoya and had dreams of marrying a Caucasian woman instead. Slim Thug has been seen on Mediatakeout trying to pursue numerous relationships with white women such as Lindsey Lohan, Taylor Swift, and Ellen Degeneres.
Attempts to Re-Collaborate with BeyonceWith no solo Top 40 hits, Slim Thug knew that his career would almost be over and that he would soon be dropped from his record label and forced to try to sign with Diddy. After noticing that his chart history looked like an empty closet, Slim decided to send Beyonce an e-mail on her blackberry to collaborate on her single Ego. Beyonce, however, was not please with Slim Thug's previous efforts of stealing the $17.80 in Letoya's cash register. Beyonce never responded to the e-mail, and since then, Slim Thug has been recording small tracks and releasing them to Myspace since iTunes will not accept his tracks; Slim does not know how to encode his tracks from WMA to MP3.
ControversyIn June 2010, Slim Thug wrote a blog for Vibe Magazine where he outlined his disdain for black women. This came to a surprise to many in the black community, seeing as most black women had never even heard of this nigga before. After concluding that he probably has a small penis and an issue with premature ejaculation, many women in the black community decided that it's probably best to allow a ditzy blonde snowflake to take his overgrown ass off of our hands.
