Slim Dunkin- Another Fallen Hip Hop Soldier [Videos]
Just as his star was rising and after working with hip hop proteges Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane, rapper Slim Dunkin has been murdered in an Atlanta Studio.
Slim Dunkin, 24, was fatally shot at a music studio in southeast Atlanta on Friday. Rapper Slim Dunkin, whose real name is Mario Hamilton, was fatally shot at a music studio in southeast Atlanta on Friday. Slim Dunkin, whose real name is Mario Hamilton, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died. The incident happened in the 1000 block of Memorial Drive. Investigators said the rapper was at the studio to shoot a music video. “Now it’s my understanding prior to the video shoot, Mr. Hamilton became involved in a verbal altercation with another individual who we believe produced a handgun, discharged that weapon at least one time, striking Mr. Hamilton in the chest,” Atlanta police Maj. Keith Meadows told Channel 2.
Police said they do not know what the argument was about and the shooter has not been identified. Meadows said 13 to 20 people were in the building when the shooting occurred around 5:30 p.m. Witnesses have been questioned and the investigation is continuing. The rapper has worked with Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane.
This another major tragedy to the hip hop community and I personally want to send up a special prayer as it seems people only have one way to resort to an argument and thats violence. We have got to do better and hope this ignorance will cease in the near future.
