Days after the fatal shooting of Atlanta rapper Slim Dunkin, fellow ATL hip-hop artist Lil Scrappy has provided his reaction and made a public calling for all artists to stop the violence.
Reflecting on Dunkin's passing, Scrappy said rappers should focus on their careers and keeping hip-hop alive rather than resorting to violent acts.
"That sh*t f*cked up, 'cause you can't bring a n*gga back," Scrappy said in a video. "It's just a wake-up call. All that sucker sh*t's gotta quit. N*ggas need to think. N*ggas ain't got to be on no scared sh*t neither. N*gga gonna die regardless but it's f*cked up when he goes before his time over some bullsh*t. ... It ain't 1994 no more, it's 2012 sh*t -- you got kids who don't even know Tupac or Biggie or Pimp C. 'Who is Pimp C?' You feel me? ... I just wanted to pay my respects to Slim Dunkin, RIP because I f*ck with shorty. I really f*ck with shorty and their movement." (DJ Smallz)
A couple days ago, Waka Flocka Flame gave his emotional reaction to losing a close friend and Brick Squad Monopoly group member.
"WISH IT WAS ME ... MY F*CKING RIGHT HAND IS GONE," Waka tweeted December 17th.
"Never tell your problems to anyone...20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them. #REALSH*T #F*CKDAWORLD"
"'Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.'" (Waka Flocka Flame's Twitter)
Dunkin's Friday night death was confirmed by Atlanta police.
Another rapper has lost his life because of a gun violence. Slim Dunkin, a 24-year-old MC who was featured heavily on Waka Flocka Flame's mixtapes, was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, December 16 after being gunned down at a recording studio. Maj. Keith Meadows of the Atlanta Police Department confirmed to The Associated Press that the Brick Squad Monopoly rapper was fatally shot in the chest at around 5:30 P.M. after he got involved in a verbal altercation with another individual. "It appears the victim was scheduled to do a photo shoot," he first stated. (Ace Showbiz)
At the time, police were still searching for the murder weapon and possible suspects.
Maj. Keith Meadows said police have not been able to identify the shooter. He said 13 to 20 people were in the small office-type building in southeast Atlanta at the time of the shooting, which took place around 5:30 p.m., but they were in different places. "We've questioned a number of witnesses inside the recording studio at this time." Meadows said. Police have not recovered the handgun that was used. Investigators remained at the scene late Friday evening. (CBS News)
