Atlantic/Rostrum rapper Wiz Khalifa was recently spotted performing in Philadelphia with Snoop Dogg, to promote their new collaborative film Mac And Devin Go To High School and accompanying album, which includes 13 songs.

Rest In Peace: Rapper Slim Dunkin Shot & Killed

Atlanta’s rapper Slim Dunkin, who worked with Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane was shot and killed in a recording studio last night Friday (December 16). Below is how the AJC is reporting the story:

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.

YoDonBleekRaps and Billion Dollah Nation would like to send our deepest prayers and condolences out to the family and friends of Slim Dunkin. God bless you all and understand that God is the answer to all of our prayers.
