There's no end in sight for Gucci Mane's legal troubles. Last week the 1017 Brick Squad CEO was indicted on federal gun charges. Now today comes news that he has been named in the wrongful death lawsuit of Brick Squad's Slim Dunkin.
Dunkin, real name Mario Hamilton, was a promising rapper and close friend of Waka Flocka Flame, when he was shot and killed by another rapper named Young Vito during a fight over a piece of candy at an Atlanta recording studio in December 2011.
He was transferred to Grady Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Dunkin was 24-years old.
After briefly going on the run and cutting off his dreads to avoid detection Vito, real name Vinson Hardimon, was arrested and charged with Dunkin's murder.
In February 2013 he was acquitted of the murder case, but found guilty of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm. He was given 25 years behind the bars by Fulton County Superior Court Judge, Craig Schwall.
The wrongful death lawsuit was filed Wednesday (December 11) in Fulton State County Court by Dunkin's father, Mark Hamilton, according to the Atlanta Constitution Journal.
The complaint claims that Dunkin was preparing to shoot a music video with Gucci, whose real name is Radric Davis, at Zone 6 studio at the time of his death.
At this point it's unclear why Gucci was named in the suit.
