(AllHipHop News) Gucci Mane is facing more legal troubles. The Atlanta artist is being sued by the father of murdered rapper Mario “Slim Dunkin” Hamilton. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the plaintiff, Mark Hamilton, has named Gucci (born Radric Davis) in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in Fulton County, Georgia.
Slim Dunkin, an affiliate of Gucci’s Bricksquad 1017, was killed at an East Atlanta recording studio in 2011. At the time the 24-year-old was preparing to shoot a music video with Gucci Mane before he was shot over a piece of candy.
Vinson “Young Vito” Hardimon was arrested for Slim’s killing but was acquitted of the murder charge. Hardimon was convicted of aggravated assault and possession and sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Vito’s attorney recently requested a judge to consider reducing his sentence to 10 years stating that Hardimon should not have been convicted off aggravated assault if he was found not guilty of murder. The lawyer also revealed that a hit has been placed on Vito’s life.
Young Vito, Gucci Mane, ABC Corp., Warner Brothers Music, and others were named as defendants in Hamilton’s suit.
