Rapper Yung Mazi Killed in Atlanta Shooting

31-year-old previously survived a shooting in December

Atlanta rapper Yung Mazi was shot and killed outside an Atlanta pizza shop, the Associated Press has reported.

The 31-year-old, born Jabril Abdur-Rahman, was shot outside of the restaurant Urban Pie on Sunday night. No arrests have been made.

“We’re praying for him and all involved,” Abdur-Rahman’s brother Luqman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, declining to comment further. “Our privacy is at a premium.”

Police responded to the incident after officers at a nearby precinct heard 10 to 25 gunshots, according to local news station Channel 2. DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the victim’s identity as Abdur-Rahman.

The rapper had previously survived a shooting eight months ago, suffering three gunshot wounds at the Buckhead Waffle House on Dec. 27. He was also a victim of a shooting in 2015, after which he uploaded a video from his hospital room telling the gunman to stop aiming for his legs and to “start aiming for some s— that’s gonna kill somebody.”

After the 2016 incident, he tweeted, “God made me bulletproof.”

An up-and-coming rapper from Atlanta, Yung Mazi was affiliated with Kevin Gates’ Breadwinners Association label. The two appeared together on the 2013 track “Ask Around.”
