Slim Dunkin may be gone, but he will never be forgotten thanks to the support of his family, friends and members of the hip-hop community. RapFix has learned that a viewing for Dunkin, who was fatally shot on December 16, will take place on Thursday (December 22) at Willie A. Watkins Funeral Home located at 1003 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard in Atlanta, Georgia from the hours of 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET.
Dunk (born Mario Hamilton) was an emerging star in Waka Flocka Flame’s Brick Squad Monopoly crew. Aside from key appearances alongside Flocka on his 2010 debut album Flockavelli and on Waka and Gucci Mane’s Ferrari Boyz LP, Slim was also beginning to make waves as a soloist. This past Halloween the street bred MC released Menace II Society, a 20-track mixtape which featured Gucci Mane, Roscoe Dash and Pastor Troy.
The ATL spitter’s life was tragically cut short after he was shot once in the chest following an altercation with another man in an Atlanta recording studio last week. Though they’ve interviewed several witnesses, the Atlanta police are still trying to identify the gunman.
Dunkin’s death has sent waves through the rap community; his close collaborators were undoubtedly hit hard. The day after he was murdered Waka took to Twitter to express his grief. “WISH IT WAS ME … MY F—ING RIGHT HAND IS GONE,” Flocka wrote the day after the murder.
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.
The exact information regarding Slim Dunkin’s funeral service is not yet available, but continue to check MTV’s RapFix for updates.
MTV News and RapFix would like to extend our condolences to the Hamilton family and the Brick Squad Monopoly crew.
