"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."
Dunkin, who was an emerging talent in Waka's Brick Squad Monopoly crew, was shot and killed December 16 after an argument in an Atlanta recording studio. The day after Dunkin's death, Waka expressed his grief via Twitter. "WISH IT WAS ME ... MY F---ING RIGHT HAND IS GONE," Flocka wrote.
The "O Let's Do It" MC continued to vent over Twitter, writing, "Damn I feel dead" and "IM LOST" in reaction to the tragic news.
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."
In March, Vinson "Young Vito" Hardimon, the rapper who police say shot Dunkin, was indicted on charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony by a Georgia grand jury.
Before he passed, the rapper appeared alongside Waka on his 2010 debut album, Flockaveli, and on Gucci Mane and V-Nasty's BAYTL LP last year. On Halloween, he dropped Menace II Society, a 20-track mixtape that featured Gucci Mane, Roscoe Dash and Pastor Troy.
