It is still unclear why Brick Squad Monopoly rapper Slim Dunkin was gunned down on Friday evening, but new details surrounding his death are starting to emerge. Atlanta Police Maj. Keith Meadows confirmed with the Associated Press that Dunkin was fatally shot once in the chest inside an ATL music studio. “It appears the victim was scheduled to do a photo shoot,” Meadows told The AP. “Before the video shoot took place, it appears the victim and suspect got involved in a verbal altercation.”
After the shooting Dunkin, whose real name is Mario Hamilton was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The police are saying that there was as many as 20 people in the building at the time of the shooting, but so far they are still searching for the gunman. “Right now we’re just trying to... identify who may have seen what, really just trying to put the pieces together,” he said. “It seems everybody witnessed something very different. We’re just trying to go back and make sense of everything.”
Dunkin, who was a Waka Flocka Flame affiliate 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.
