Slim Thug was shocked to learn that Lupe Fiasco’s Hip Hop Saved My Life was about him.

“It was crazy to hear that it was about me, inspired by me. It was amazing. It was a dope moment in Hip-Hop for me. He shot the video in Houston and I pulled up. So it was a real dope experience, man,” he told HHDX.

In 2008, Lupe told MTV: “It is based on Slim Thug. I was with him when we shot the video, and he was like, ‘Yo, is this song about me?’ I didn’t know at the time, but there was a situation in Houston where they were trying to figure out who the song was about. Was it about Slim Thug? Was it about Chamillionaire? And it was about Slim Thug, but [then] I dedicated the song to Bun.”

He continued: “I called him up and said, ‘Yo, Bun, I’ve got a song for you, check it out,’ and he was the first person to hear it. I sent it to him and he was like, ‘Yo, it’s all good.’”
