Yung Mazi who had collaborated with big-name artists such as Rich Homie Quan and Yung Thug -was gunned down in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta, the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s office said.
Authorities responded to the scene after hearing gunshots outside the the department’s Zone 6 precinct, which is located nearby.
Officials said no suspects are in custody, and the investigation for the rapper’s shooter is ongoing.
