This is so, so tragic.

The up-and-coming rapper Slim Dunkin was shot and killed in an Atlanta recording studio Friday night.

He was shot once in the chest with a handgun at around 5:30 pm as he was working in the studio, preparing to make a video. About a dozen people were also in the studio.

Atlanta Police Maj. Keith Meadows described what happened:

"Before the video shoot took place, it appears the victim and suspect got involved in a verbal altercation. We don't know what that altercation was about.

Right now we're just trying to . . . identify who may have seen what, really just trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. It seems everybody witnessed something very different. We're just trying to go back and make sense of everything."

Slim Dunkin, real name Mario Hamilton, was pronounced dead at Memorial Grady Hospital.

So unbelievably sad. This did not have to happen. Violence is NEVER, ever the answer.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    Rappers getting shot isn't a shock anymore. And one less Mario in the world is a positive thing.

    If you needlessly live like a stereotype, you will needlessly die like a stereotype. Enough with the gangsta culture. RIP foolish young man.

    Re: violethill – it is not a positive thing, but it certainly is not a shock. Apparently this whole rap crew he ran with had many members in and out of jail, including Gucci Mane. Sorry sweetheart, but if you run like an animal you will die like one. You can;t choose your skin color, you can't choose the socio-economic strata you were born into, but you CAN choose to not celebrate a criminal life. It's called self enslavement. I think BIll Cosby would agree and kick these boys asses.

    A druggie, woman beater, thief, and probably a murderer already, shot dead. Shock, Aweee, amazement. NOT this is what happens when you choose to live a life as a "thug." One less druggie on the streets. LATER LOSERZ!

    First and foremost R.I.P. Slim Dunkin, and for the ones that made negative comments about this African American. You have no clue what his up bringing was… And I don't appreciate you all slandering our African American people like we all negative and all we know is the street life,do trust their are plenty of us out there that are well educated and also have street mentality. # dontjudgeusimjustsaying



  19. 19

    some of these comments ya'll are posting are disgusting. IDK who he is, but regardless of who he hung out with, he didn't deserve to die like that.

    Re: GaGaGoAwayAway – AMEN! You said it personally. And it's not basking him because he's an African American. Did anyone even pay attention to Dr. King's I Have a Dream speech? He said I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. So what was this guy's character like? Rapper, drugs, hateful twords women.. Yea huney i don't think they're judging him cause he's black… Get a life.. If people don't want to be slammed and put down, they should stop behaving like animals and thugs and criminals. No respect for the value of life at all.. Just pathetic..

    Re: NOLAgurl2010 – Perfectly* Bashing* Damn auto correct. That's almost as bad as some of these rappers needing to be respectful and pull their damn pants up. No one cares to see your underwear.. THAT'S why people treat them the way they do, because if you're going to run around acting like an idiot, you'll get what you ask for: Treated like an idiot Regardless of color!



  22. 22

    Rest in peace. Nobody deserves to get shot to death.



  23. 23

    Is the black version of birth control?

    Re: DazzlinNunu – Stop defending the WRONG kind of african-american, and perhaps, they will have a much, much better image in everybody eyes.



  25. 25

    This is SO sad! RIP… Who would of thought someone would get shot in a recording studio? Where was freaken security!?!?

    Re: BeezJay – IF YOU don'y know who and what he is, how do you KNOW what he deserves. making up your mind with absolutely NO INFORMATION,,, real intelligent



  28. 28

    Re: Lady Who? – You are genuinely IGNORANT to leave that type of Comment. OK… he may have been a thug; however, that does not absolve the 10 Commandments. 'Thou shall not kill'. What for a cockroach are you? You are not any better than those thug losers!

    Re: msloriga – You are sooooooo right! Why does your city have so many BAD people? Unfortunately the majority of them are Blacks males and females. They are like a CRIMINAL infestation. It's AWFUL!
