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.

There are 36 comments for this all day. What song do these wannabees sing or rap to? i'm so confused as to how Atlanta homicides of high school rappers are relevant to TMZ - a celebrity news source. WTF

Yes, a white horse drawn carriage seems an appropriate sendoff for an illiterate gangster wannabe with six kids by four different women. Dumb little turd never graduated from college and contributed nothing to society or others but we're going to release white doves? Yeah, okay.

It's sad when someone is killed, but I heard this was all over a piece of candy. If that's true, that's beyond sad and outrageous!

The funniest thing about it (other than the dumbass names) is that in their minds they are being classy.
