Gucci Mane has been named in a new wrongful death lawsuit concerning Slim Dunkin’s murder.
For those unaware, late Brick Squad Monopoly emcee Mario "Slim Dunkin" Hamilton was shot to death in Atlanta's Zone 6 Studio on December 16th, 2011, after an alleged dispute over candy with fellow rapper Vinson "Young Vito" Hardimon. Although a Fulton County jury found Hardimon guilty of gun possession and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in February, they acquitted him of murder and felony murder charges (he's still serving a 25-year sentence, though).
Dunkin's father, Mark Hamilton, was understandably displeased with the verdict, and filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Fulton County State Court on Wednesday, which names Gucci Mane, BC Corp. and Warner Brothers Music International as defendants, among others. Dunkin was apparently preparing to shoot a music video with Gucci when he was killed.
Gucci, whose legal troubles have come to a head in recent months, is currently serving time in DeKalb County Jail for gun charges while awaiting sentencing for federal gun and aggravated assault charges. His attorney wasn't available for comment.
Stay tuned for updates on this.
