In 2000, after a year and a half of being an artist on Michael 5000 Watts and OG Ron C's Swishahouse label, he decided to venture out on his own after realizing he can earn more money on his own instead of splitting it with a load of artists and getting next to nothing. Over the years, they have released numerous mixtapes and street albums. In 2004, Slim signed his first major label contract with Interscope Records which enabled him to keep making independent albums, signed Killa Kyleon and Interscope also nationally distrubted the label's biggest release, Slim's Already Platinum which was released in 2005 after heavy bootlegging, and numerous delays which stalled the original 2004 release date, the album went certified Gold.

On August 3, 2008, after label shakeups, minimal communication, staff firings and numerous delays for his sophomore album, Boss Of All Bosses, Slim asked for his release from Interscope. This enabled him to take his label back to its independent roots.
