SLim Dunkin

Atlanta police are still trying to figure out who gunned down rapper Slim Dunkin in an Atlanta a recording studio Friday afternoon -- and why?

Police Major Keith Meadows said Saturday there have been no arrests in the shooting.

"We're still talking to people," Meadows said. "The truth is we don't know exactly what happened."

Witnesses told police the 24-year-old rap star, whose real name is Mario Hamilton, got into an argument before a video shoot at a studio on Memorial drive about 5:30 Friday afternoon. The person he was arguing with pulled out a pistol and shot Hamilton in the chest. Hamilton was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital. [Atlanta News]

Slim Dunkin appeared on Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame's Ferrari Boyz album released this summer on Brick Squad 1017/Warner Brothers, as well as on Waka's studio debut, Flockaveli.

Because of the violence, bitch. There ain't enough testosterone in the entire indie rock universe to figure out how to load a gun, let alone bust a cap in someone's ass. A story like this gives em' vicarious street cred.

It's always tragic when innocent, upstanding citizens like Slim Dunkin are murdered.

The police don't really care and rightfully so. These hoods, they just can't behave. Oh well...

I'm still stuck on the fact that his name was "Slim Dunkin". Me personally, I'm more of a Fat Starbucks kinda guy.
