Video After The Jump
Up and coming rapper Yung Mazi has been shot and killed in his hometown of Atlanta.
11 Alive reports that police responded to gunshots in front of Urban Pie on Sunday, August 6. When they arrived Mazi was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Police say he appeared to have been targeted.
Mazi, real name Jibril A, told DJ Smallz in a June of 2016 interview, that he had been shot 10 times previously.
"I'm a red dude. People always don't like the red dude for some reason ... and that's cool. I'm not hating, I'm not mad. I would be mad honestly, if I was like you. I would be mad. And then, I might walk around with with a quarter million dollars worth of jewelry on," he told Smallz when asked why he keeps getting shot.
In December of 2016, the rapper was shot 3 more times at a Buckhead Waffle House.
We send our deepest condolences out to Mazi's family and friends.
