Suspect in rapper Slim Dunkin's slaying turns self in

Last edited Tue Apr 8, 2014, 12:17 AM - Edit history (23)

Dec 16 2011:
Atlanta police...have identified a suspect in the slaying of rapper Slim Dunkin...28-year-old Young Vito, whose real name is Vinson Hardimon...

A Twitter posting earlier this year identified Young Vito as a...local "street legend turned rapper” who was about to “embark on capitalizing the rap, fashion, & movie industry...”

Witnesses told police Slim Dunkin, 24...was (at a) Memorial Drive studio...(to) attend a recording session with Gucci Mane and another rap artist, V-Nasty...(He) got into an argument...The person he was arguing with pulled out a pistol and shot Hamilton in the chest...

(A)ccording to a police release..."We are urging Mr. Hardimon to turn himself in to authorities because we have reason to believe he may be in danger..." Calls can be made to Atlanta Crimestoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or contact the Atlanta Police Department's homicide unit at 404-546-4235...


If the info about the recording session is correct, it gives us two possible motives:

1) Did Dunkin promise Vito a role in the recording, and then renege? Twenty-eight is rather old for a rookie rapper. Seeing that Dunkin and Gucci Maine are nationally established, involvement in the recording session would have meant major-league exposure and prestige for Vito.

2) Did Vito feel super-dissed about V-Nasty? Since V-Nasty is also a rookie, white, female, from the West Coast, and confuses rapping talent with talking dirty, Vito may have felt publicly humiliated that he was taking a back seat to her, and on his "home turf" to boot...

after a week long investigation into the murder of Slim Dunkin.

“We got a call from Mr. Hardimon’s attorney. They wanted to turn themselves in to me personally,” said Detective David Quinn of the Atlanta Police Department...“We’re still urging...whoever was at 1074 Memorial Drive on December 16 to give us a call...”

Hardimon was free on bond after an April arrest where he pulled a gun on two women during a standoff.

So he's not a first offender, eh? I guess threatening women with a gun didn't give him enough "street cred"!

5. UPDATE: Vito Denied Bond

Last edited Thu Jan 26, 2012, 04:46 PM - Edit history (1)

(1/12/12)Yung Vito, real name Vinson Hardimon, was denied bond in the shooting death of Atlanta rapper Mario Denzel, also known as Slim Dunkin.

...Detective David Quinn...told the Atlanta Journal Constitutional that “His laptop was left behind with his name on it...(a)nd his name was on the dry-erase board as next up to rap."

...Apparently Dunkin walked in the studio and picked up a piece of candy as Yung Vito said it belonged to him. Dunkin went into the studio then allegedly responded with: "I didn't know it was yours but you don't have to get gangsta about it," and then went in the booth and rapped, "Dreads ain't sh**t, I will put two to your head."

That's when Yung Vito ran in the booth and began punching Slim Dunkin. As Quinn recounts, Slim was defending himself and getting the best of Vito when someone passed him a gun...

Someone who -- a "friend" of Vito's? And OVER A PIECE OF CANDY? Well, now we know that Vito was supposed to be part of the recording project, but his overreaction to his candy disappearing suggests that he was nonetheless resentful of his low "billing."
