About Waka Flocka & Slim Dunkin
For those unaware, former Brick Squad Monopoly emcee Slim Dunkin, born Mario Hamilton, left us all too soon in December 2011, having been shot in the chest by fellow rapper Vinson "Young Vito" Hardimon, allegedly in the midst of a dispute over candy. While Dunk was alive, he and Waka Flocka were very close friends and collaborators, operating under the same imprints, 1017 Brick Squad Records and Brick Squad Monopoly. As a duo, they released two mixtapes, 2009's Twin Towers and its 2011 sequel Twin Towers 2: No Fly Zone. May Slim Dunkin rest in peace until he's reunited with the squad in the afterlife, at which point they will no doubt turn up.
