Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has continued to speak on the tragic death of close friend Slim Dunkin and why despite known facts, he is unwilling to accept his passing.
Flocka also said he would dedicate his upcoming sophomore album to the late Brick Squad Monopoly member.
"My dog ain't pass. I ain't accepting that," Waka told MTV News after a photo shoot in Brooklyn, New York, last week. "You know that sh-- is gonna carry with me, though, because he's me and I'm him. Together we're Brick Squad, man." Flocka dedicated his upcoming June album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family to Dunkin. "What's behind my Triple F Life wave? The passing of my best friend Dunk. R.I.P. Dunk," he said. "That boy there was special. That boy there was different." (MTV)
The Atlanta rapper recently admitted fighting through his death to get back into music-making.
"What made me put my album out? My best friend [Slim Dunkin] died in December," Flocka said in an interview. "It took me two months after him passing away - not even two months. I didn't get over his death for four months. So it took me the fifth month after my friend lost his life for me to start my new album." (East Village Radio)
A few months ago, BSM member Frenchie spoke to SOHH about Dunkin's death.
"I've always been able to move forward because I feel like the more you think about it, the more you suffer," Frenchie told SOHH referring to Slim. "God works in his own purposes. That's my brother right there. If I keep on stressing myself, I'm not gonna be able to do what my brother wanted us to do. We all go hard. We push ourselves within our Brick Squad family and follow suit. That's what it's all about. ... [Slim's passing] pulled us together. That's family and so of course it hit the home base. We've got to keep working for my boy's legacy and never let him die. We can never let his spirit die. He's no longer here, but he's here in the spirit. The longer we keep it in the air, the longer people are going to know who he is." (SOHH)
In December, Slim's funeral took place in the rapper's Atlanta hometown.
Rapper Gucci Mane attended the lavish funeral for fellow Brick Squad Monopoly rapper Slim Dunkin on Wednesday in Atlanta and RumorFix has the exclusive details. The body of the 24-year-old rapper, who was reportedly murdered over a Jolly Rancher candy, was heralded with trumpets and carried by pallbearers wearing coat and tails with top hats. White flowers that spelled out the word "Squad" were laid on his casket during the services that featured several gospel songs. While Gucci paid his respects to the up and coming rapper, surprisingly Slim's buddy, Waka Flocka Flame, was nowhere in sight. (RumorFix)
