Gucci Mane - Mane And Flame Paying For Slain Rapper's Funeral
Hip-hop stars Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame have offered to cover the funeral costs for an up-and-coming rap associate who was shot and killed last week (16Dec11).
Slim Dunkin, real name Mario Hamilton, was murdered following a heated argument in a recording studio in Atlanta, Georgia.
A remembrance service is due to take place on Friday (23Dec11) and Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame have vowed to foot the bill for the memorial to give their late Brick Squad crew member the send-off he deserves.
According to Tmz.com, the funeral will include a white horse-drawn carriage and the release of white doves.
Meanwhile, police are investigating claims Hamilton was killed in a dispute over a piece of candy.
Homicide detective David Quinn says, "Slim Dunkin was inside this particular room, when according to witnesses someone came in struck him and a fight ensued.
"The information we are getting - and it's unconfirmed - but this whole thing was over a piece of candy. The fight spilled out into this area where he was attacked and beat, and based on the evidence we have, whoever he was fighting with secured a weapon and shot him, whereby he fell on this table."
