Police are investigating the apparent homicide, which took place outside of Street Execs Studio in northeast Atlanta. Officials say at least 50 shell casings were discovered on the scene of the crime, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The motive behind the shooting is currently unknown and no arrests have been made.
Donald Hannah, a spokesperson for the Atlanta police, said officers found “a large crowd of people fleeing the location” and that
“Fresh,” real name Trentavious White, was taken to Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospital in “an unknown vehicle.” The MC died before midnight.
2 Chainz, who opened the studio last year in association with Street Execs Management, has collaborated with Fresh in the past. He was one of many artists in the rap world who responded to the news.
Man I’m a fan of Bru and always will be , I’m in shock at the moment !! Senseless deaths we just got to stop it , I’m speaking up now 🙏🏿
“Man I’m a fan of Bru and always will be,” tweeted 2 Chainz. “I’m in shock at the moment !! Senseless deaths we just got to stop it, I’m speaking up now.”
Just days after his friend, rapper Bankroll Fresh was shot and killed at the young age of 28, 2 Chainz is opening up about his friend’s death. During his visit to “The Wendy Williams Show” today, Monday (March 7th), 2 Chainz paid tribute to his Street Execs affiliate. “He was an authentic trap rapper from Atlanta, who touched many lives and lit up every room he went to,” he said. “It was super unfortunate, super unnecessary, super senseless. And it just made me want to step up and use my platform for more positivity.”
R.I.P. to this young man & our condolences to his family.
