The 28-year-old was herald as one of ATL’s burgeoning artists, already grabbing people’s attention back in 2014 with his critically-acclaimed mixtape Life of a Hot Boy, and collaborated with 2 Chainz on his eponymous project last year.
Lt. Charles Hampton of the Atlanta Police Department stated that no one else was fatally shot or injured in the tragic occurrence, but no arrests have been made or details of the motive behind the shooting.
Fellow artists also sent their condolences to the fallen MC and some called for an end to the senseless violence.
