You probably heard those people, but not them people.
A correct statement or not ?

Not correct – we can’t pay "them people".
"Them" is an object pronoun.
The type of word you need before "people" is a demonstrative determiner
A determiner comes before and introduces a noun. A demonstrative determiner shows us the identity of the noun which follows it. The demonstrative determiners in English are "this", "that", "these" and "those".
