Kevin Gates affiliate rapper Yung Mazi was shot and killed on Sunday night in Atlanta.
Details about the gruesome killing of Yung Mazi are still coming in but so far we’ve learned that the shooting took place in the Kirkwood community of Atlanta. 11Alive reported that cops responded to a 911 call approximately 8:55 p.m. on Sunday. When cops arrived near the intersection of Oakview Road and Hosea L. Williams Drive they found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced dead.
Investigators have not released the name of the victim, but friends and family of rapper Yung Mazi have identified him as the dead man. Mazi recently refers to himself as bulletproof after getting shot on December 27, 2016, at a Waffle House in Buckhead. He survived that shooting back then but not this time.
Yung Mazi is signed to Kevin Gates label and has in the past worked with the Baton Rouge rapper. He also previously worked with local Atlanta rappers like Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. In a recent interview, he claimed that he has been shot at least 10 times and was at one point suffering from a serious brain damage from a gunshot wound to his head.
