Recently, news surfaced that Chaz “Slim” Williams passed away. Reports noted that Williams passed away in his New York home on July 13.
For those unaware, Williams was once a manager for 50 Cent early on his career, and also had ties to artists like Foxy Brown, Jay-Z, and Tupac Shakur through the founding of his storied Black Hand Entertainment.
Williams was also known for committing a total of 60 bank robberies, something he detailed in his VladTV interview that took place in 2016. Along with that, BET’s ‘American Gangster’ did a show on Williams, but were ultimately sued by Williams, who took BET, Netflix, A&E, Apple, and more to court over the episode. Williams ultimately was able to beat the motion to dismiss in the copyright infringement suit he filed against all the companies.
