Breaking Exclusive: Rapper Gucci Mane Hit with 11 Million Dollar Judgment in the Death of Rapper Slim Dunkin
On December 16th, 2011, Mario Hamilton known by his rap name “Slim Dunkin” was scheduled to shoot a music video at a recording studio in Atlanta when he and another rapper named Yung Vito were involved in a fight that resulted in Hamilton’s death after being shot once in the chest by Vinson Hardimon. Hardimon was later convicted by a jury for Aggravated Assault and weapons possession but not the actual murder. During testimony in the trial Hardimon testified that rapper Gucci Mane was at the video shoot and that his record label 1017 Brick Squad was responsible for the production of the shoot. The father of the deceased Hamilton filed a civil lawsuit against Gucci Mane’s record label Warner Music along with his own company 1017 Brick Squad for damages and wrongful death because they failed to provide adequate security for the video shoot.
Rapper Waka Flocka was a close friend of Hamilton aka Slim Dunkin and appeared in many viral videos together before his death.
