Originally published February 2011.

“As a Emcee, I will be both respected and admired, leaving a legacy that will bring forth a Slim Dunkin” – Slim Dunkin

Slim Dunkin is more than just your average 20-year-old. The Atlanta native is one of the hotter Hip-Hop artists to emerge from the musical metropolis. The rapper is a member of the Brick Squad brand, currently home to the likes of heavyweights Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame. Despite his affiliation, Slim is able to stand alone. Equipped with a unique lyrical ability and style all his own, he hopes to claim his own place in Hip-Hop History. So, Atlanta is where AllHipHop found Slim Dunkin and the conversation went as follows:

    SHAME. SO YOUNG. DETAILS OF HIS DEMISE ANYONE?

  • MrTroyMercy

    Ahh , don’t salute him now cause he was not even your radar . If he wasn’t affilated with Waka , he would’ve been just a dead rapper to y’all . This is what I hate about social networks … your life ain’t enough news to them until your dead .

    Death makes your life a story – death makes something news worthy . I didn’t even read the article cause I see what your trying to do …..benfit off the death you care or really knew anything about other him being down with Wacka .

    Just like when Guru died you did all thse LOST articles but before he died you never gave fucck about his music because he wasn’t big enough for a story .

    Just send a r.I.p to his fam and keep it moving cause right now all you are trying to do is get browny points before the other site and that’s ashame.

    • Carlton Jordan

  • Ahh ran this interview with him in Feb 2011.

    He was on the radar & saluted 10mnths ago?

    At Troy Mercy : # I’mJustSayin’

    That doesn’t invalidate what your saying though!

  • TruthSerum

    Hip Hop needs less people like this in the game, not to say he shoulda died but I cant stand these “I dont have no lyrics, I’m in this for the money only” type cats, they talk about hip hop like its selling crack or summin, being an artist isnt summin you should be exploiting just to get paid, if you aint got no genuine love for the craft go someplace else and get paid

    • ⚡ENERGIZER⚡ISM

      Agreed! There’s even barbers out here like this now, everything aint trappin, some shit is actually legitimate business and should be treated as such.

      Stop Being Stupid, He Do Have The Love For The Craft Of Music, He Just Need The Money To Get His Family Str8…

  • Marc

    Ain’t he dead?
