Waka Flocka & Gucci Mane

Footing GIANT Funeral Bill

for Murdered Rapper

12/21/2011 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Stupid worthless animals Instead of throwing your money away - you should invest it in programs to help steer young black youth away from your pathetic life style.

These are the kinds of worthless s**** targeted in L.A. - animals who misrepresent our good African-American brothers and sisters.

Wow, some intresting comments on this subject. If you don't know who these people are, why even comment and make semi-racist statements!?! Yeah, maybe they could use the money for something better but it is nice for them to help their friend's family out with the expenses. No matter who they are, what they do, what they look like, they should praised for that. And as someone stated before, if you have nothing nice to say, then skip this TMZ post and don't respond!!!

You must be new here. 90% of all posts on every single article is filled with hate regardless of the topic and I have to say that in most cases (including this one) they are right. By only saying nice things, nothing would change. These dirtbag, talentless, criminals are held on a pedestal and as a result of that, children and idiots get sucked in and think this is a "good" way to live life which means they will continue to die right and left with innocent people caught in the crossfire. "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it".

What's with this putting money in scholarship business. Why should it take them to donate money to scholarships tell the education board to stop raising prices on community college students and paying themselves large salaries to make stupid decisions.
