Waka Flocka & Gucci Mane

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 have no idea who these people are I don't understand why you are even reading this. But if they want to spend their money on his funeral, more power to them. I think it is sweet and very respectful! RIP

Instead of some gaudy ridiculous charade, take those bucks and set up a few scholarships. Oh wait, then Mo'Qwee-Fa and Sher-ree-Ka can't tear each other's weaves out over who is the Official Bereaved Baby Mama. Never mind.

I thought both of those guys are broke... or maybe in jail... I guess if they aren't one of those things now they will be in the future.
