Waka Flocka & Gucci Mane

Footing GIANT Funeral Bill

for Murdered Rapper

Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane are throwing down big $$$ to cover funeral expenses for a fellow Atlanta rapper -- who was brutally gunned down last week -- lavishing their fallen comrade with elaborate memorial arrangements.

Rapper Slim Dunkin (center) -- real name Mario Hamilton -- was shot and killed Friday night inside an Atlanta recording studio ... after a verbal altercation with an unidentified man turned deadly.

Now, a rep for Waka and Gucci tells TMZ, the rappers are pooling their assets to ensure Slim is laid to rest in the best way possible ... with an elaborate funeral that includes a white horse-drawn carriage, massive white floral arrangements, and a white dove release ceremony.

We're told Slim's family will cover some funeral costs -- but Waka and Gucci are paying for the lion's share.

The funeral is scheduled to take place Friday morning at 11am at Berean Christian Church in Atlanta.

If you don't having nothing nice to say then be quiet..What if this guys family sees how you are disrespecting their loved one..despite lifestyle, no one deserves to be killed and even worse, disrespected in this type of way..I think's it nice that these two guys are even helping out with expenses instead of acting like nothing happened..

1 less s***bag in the world. I'm sure the "argument" between those two respectable human beings was over some really positive things right? Couldn't be drugs or crime related.

What they are doing is very nice, but I have never heard of any of these people, and their names are strange, to say the least!

The guy got killed over a piece of candy, how sad. I think its nice what Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane are doing. Something off topic, I find it very annoying when people say 'who cares' well you cared enough to leave a comment.. shut up with your 'who cares' bs.

That's nice. Good thing they didn't go overboard trying to make him and them look like big shots. Whoever they all are, guess it must be ok with them to die so young playing gangster 'cause it never changes.

black folk killing each other is what white people were busy doing for millenia, all up until like wwii or even korea/vietnam, killing off white guys by the billions. shakespeare is all about white guys killing each other. nothing new. i guess the guys consider it 'cleaning up the race' or something like that...just that now white folk look at black folk for doing this, and call them animals. lol. what a mirror image can provoke in self-realization. racists = no brains.
