Sad news to report. Atlanta rapper Yung Mazi was killed on Sunday, August, 6. The shooting occurred just before 9 p.m., when Yung Mazi was leaving a pizza spot, according to WSB-TV. Atlanta police reportedly responded to calls about ten to 25 gunshots. The pizza spot, Urban Pie, is located right across the street from a police precinct in the DeKalb County area of Atlanta.
Many of social media users are grieving Yung Mazi, 31, whose real name was Jibril Abdur-Rahman.
Mazi collaborated with other Atlanta rappers, like Rich Homie Quan and Yung Thug, and it was said he survived being shot ten times in the past. “God made me bulletproof,” Yung Mazi tweeted hours after he was shot at a Buckhead Waffle House in December 2016.
Mazi’s family has decided not to comment on the shooting. His brother, Luqman Abdur-Rahman, only told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that “We’re praying for him and all involved.” He also asked for privacy during their family’s time of grieving.
R.I.P., Yung Mazi.
