Less than 24 hours since the fatal shooting of Brick Squad Monopoly member Slim Dunkin, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has come forward with his emotional reaction to losing a close friend and business affiliate.
Writing in all caps through Twitter, Flocka told fans he wished he could switch places with the slain rapper.
“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.

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)
The late rapper was reportedly known for grinding alongside Waka Flocka.
Dunkin has appeared on a number of songs with Waka like “F–k the Club Up,” “Bang” and “Karma” all from Flocka’s 2010 debut Flockavelli. He was also featured heavily on Waka’s mixtapes like Twin Towers, Twin Towers 2 (No Fly Zone) and LeBron Flocka Flame 3. Dunkin was on his solo grind as well. This past Halloween the street bred MC released Menace II Society, a 20-track mixtape which featured Gucci Mane, Roscoe Dash and Pastor Troy. (RapFix)
