He essentially built up a strong rep for himself without doing anything worthy to gain that rep. I'm not dissing him, Slim is one of my favorites, I just don't think he's this guy who could lyrically destroy any emcee.
I think that honour goes to Ice Cube, his track record shows how brutal he is when it comes to ripping artists ..I mean NWA, Cypress Hill, MC Hammer , etc
LL Cool J, Nas, DMX, Kurrupt, Common
maybe you could add 50 to that list (well he was brutal during his feuds with Ja, Ross, Joe, and Game)
