Thizzler On The Roof has worked with the rapper since 2020.
"From early on we knew that his work ethic and the care he put into his artistry would take him very far," Johnson said.
"We had high hopes for Young Slo-Be’s career and looked forward to doing more great work together.
"This senseless act of violence has taken a man from his family and leaves a huge void in the West Coast music community. We hope to see a day where this kind of thing isn’t so common.
"We’ll miss him dearly."
The Thizzler also posted on Twitter hours earlier announcing the death.
"Rest In Peace Young Slo-Be ... We’re devastated to announce that rising star Young Slo-Be was shot & killed this morning."
"It was an honor to work with Slo-Be the last couple of years and we’re heartbroken to say goodbye. Our condolences go out to his family & loved ones."
Young Slo-Be grew up in Stockton, California - the location where he got his start performing for others in his neighborhood.
He went viral for his 2018 song Smurkish Wayz on SoundCloud and YouTube.
The rapper, whose real name is Disean Jaquae Victor, has kept much of his life a secret, leaving his age and past partially unknown.
“I tell people [my age] all the time,” Slo-Be told Spin. “I’m 2100.”
Fans have continued to share their tributes on social media.
"Young Slo-Be was arguably the greatest rapper in Stockton, a stylistic innovator who couched the grim in comedy and half-whispers. He was beacon of hope to kids in his hood & his kids. When we spoke, he was kinder & more gracious than most, elated to rep Stockton & rise. RIP," one fan tweeted.
"RIP Young Slo-Be, the latest future legend stolen from us in this nightmare holocaust, the third in a murdered trinity with Drakeo & Bris, innovating a new West Coast whisper-smirk style, vicious and hilarious, forever rewindable. Slo-Be Bryant from Southeast, gone far too soon," someone else wrote.
"Devastated to hear about the passing of Young Slo-Be. Hard to keep watching young artists get their futures snatched from them at the doorstep of success. He had so many goals he wanted to accomplish," another fan tweeted.

The move to Marseille is just the latest chapter of Sanchez's long career.
After five years at Udinese, he moved to Barcelona in 2011.
He scored 39 goals in 88 games during his time at the Nou Camp.
The Chilean then took the Premier League by storm after a 2014 move to Arsenal as he rumbled defences with his sharp, direct movement.
He then joined Manchester United in 2018 but failed to make the same impact, scoring only 3 goals in his two years at Old Trafford.
Sanchez is the latest high-profile star to have his contract terminated following on from Aaron Ramsey last month.
