Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane to Pay Bulk of Slim Dunkin’s Funeral

Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane are apparently voluntarily footing most of the bill for Slim Dunkin’s funeral, according to TMZ.

A rep for Waka and Gucci tells the entertainment site that the rappers are making sure Slim is laid to rest in the best way possible, with an elaborate funeral that includes a white horse-drawn carriage, massive white floral arrangements and a white dove release ceremony. Slim’s family will cover some funeral costs, but Waka and Gucci are paying for the bulk of it.

Slim Dunkin, real name Mario Hamilton, was gunned down on Friday (December 16) after a verbal altercation with an unidentified man turned deadly. According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, the Waka Flocka affiliate lost his life over a dispute about a piece of candy.

“Slim Dunkin was inside this particular room, when according to witnesses someone came in struck him and a fight ensued,” said homicide detective David Quinn to the news station while walking through the studio. “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.”

The funeral is scheduled to take place Friday morning at 11am at Berean Christian Church in Atlanta. —Gina Montana

    RIP Slim Dunkin.

    The whole thing sounds like a setup to me. I know some of these dudes are a lil hotheaded but nobody would pull out a gun on their homie over some candy. Set up.
