Young Mazi

Local rapper Yung Mazi, who was shot 10 times at a Waffle House in Atlanta last December, was shot and killed at another local eatery on Sunday night.

Police say the 31-year-old rapper was shot to death by a lone gunman outside a pizza restaurant in Atlanta. Witnesses described the gunman as a black male wearing dark jeans, a white t-shirt, and a dreadlocks hairstyle.

Mazi survived an earlier attempt on his life when he was shot and wounded after ordering breakfast at a Waffle House.

R&B singer Monica Brown shared a B&W image of Mazi on her Instagram page on Monday with the caption, “My Heart is Bleeding.”

Rapper Rich Homie Quan, who recorded with Mazi, also honored his friend’s memory on social media, posting a photo of the late rapper in the studio and captioning it, “Rest easy Mazi.”

Mazi, who was also shot and wounded in an ambush in 2015, famously said the shooter should take better aim next time.

“I just got shot three more times.. I done got shot 10 times, he said from his hospital bed in Nov. 2015.

    It’s totally not safe to be a rapper in Atlanta. Especially if you’ve had any kinda adverse association. These folks not playing. Especially these young folks they are trained to go. Knocking folks off like it’s nothing. Whomever did this probably already somewhere stankin. I’ll never understand why people want to be rappers.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    This is sad somebody wanted this man dead this sounds like a hit

  • kekeb

    This is tragic. Man. I hope he made it in

  • sealsaa

    This idiot stayed taunting people online, always had some shit going, and this is the end result. Take note Troy Ave and Young Dolph. This ain’t a comic book.

  • jade

    From everything I’ve read about this man, it seems he had a death wish. Why the heck would you get shot that many times and still be hanging around the city? I feel sorry for his kids, who will now grow up fatherless. Anyway, I wish him peace.

  • Faithz

    RIP Man.

  • Faithz

    Somebody was after him for something.

  • PhillyFacts

    It’s sad when folks get shot and think it’s a medal of honor, glorifying the ish like they just obtained a PHD. I’m at a lost for words, surviving should’ve humbled the brother unfortunately he will never live to tell his story to our youth to keep them from traveling the same path. RIP young brother ?

  • PhillyFacts

    Selfishness, feeling he had something to prove.

  • Malai

    Well… he definitely tempted fate by gloating at the fact that the gunman didn’t have good enough aim to take his life before.. now he’s gone smh

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Damn. Mo heart bleeding bc Rocko was trying to mentor this cat right? Isn’t he the one on YT with old vid with Future and Scooter? Rip. Man.

  • On the radar….

    First it was the Waffle House. Then they got him at a pizza place ….? Fast food really is bad for you!

  • Anunnaki

    I had a guy tell me the other day that he was a dealer 25+ yrs ago and what we see now days are products of crack kids , that a lot of O.G’s feed to their black sista’s and brothers back then. I ask him how did he feel knowing that he contributed to this. He said I’m paying for it daily. No matter what he tries to do help his community. He feel guilty. These kids are bout it.

  • SummerBaby

    RIP! ??

    My condolences to his family

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    My heart aches for these parents losing their children at an alarming rate. A 4 year old was shot in the head after a road rage incident here in Cleveland. These times are scary and crazy.

  • GuestSTAR

    Hope his baby mama, wife or mother was smart enough to get a life/burial insurance policy out on him after the December incident, I know I would’ve. Not sure If DMX is even insurable, but his wife should look into some insurance on him as well.

    Getting shot 10x is not a badge of honor! Should not be celebrated, eventually you gonna pay the piper. Sad but it was only a matter time.

  • TooMuchTea

    Well said! ?????? You survived 10x, sit yo azz down somewhere!!

  • TooMuchTea

    That is tru! This was bound to happen.

  • BrittBrat2005

    I think I would have step out the music, hood gang and street life after the first 10 shots & step into a Church and change my whole lifestyle after that… That was the God warning him then.. But I guess he didn’t take it to heart and made sense of it.. R.I.P

  • Yup, I said it

    Wow that is very insightful. I never made the connection before.

    But phil spector put someone in the dirt also ?.

  • sunni_daze

    Corect if I’m wrong but wasn’t he the same guy posting from his hospital bed about how “they couldn’t kill” him last year.

  • GuestSTAR

    Yep, and he was telling the shooters they didn’t aim right and instructed them on where they should of shot him. I believe Sandra posted the article on here.

  • unknown user

    I was getting ready to say something but Monica saying her heart is bleeding makes me want to just go. So bye! ?

  • sunni_daze

    So he got what he asked for? I didn’t read that article until after my comment, but I remembered his face and his comment from back then.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. He once said “God made me bulletproof”. smh.

  • GuestSTAR

    Yep, they aimed where he instructed them to…..

  • sunni_daze

    So he was taunting death, just fucking with the Reaper…..hmmm

  • FlyKai

    The disrespect is disgusting…the futile attempts at humor while someone is grieving says a lot about character and the state of this world. Regardless…he’s somebody’s son, father, brother, friend. Death doesn’t discriminate…have a little f—ing compassion bcz if you haven’t already…you will experience grief. Let’s see how the jokes make you feel.

    Prayers for his fam….. But don’t encourage folks to shoot you. If anything he should’ve realized God gave him another chance

  • Chicagowise

    He was an idiot with a deathwish. Should I be sad because his dream came true? ?

  • Renee26

    Maybe he’d still be alive if somebody was cooking him meals at home….too soon ok

  • Renee26

    Sad…people are sick

  • Willetta

    @Anunnaki … He is SO ON POINT! I’ve said this so much that it has become one of my mantras, “The Crack Babies have had Babies & those Babies have had Babies. They are raising their Babies the way they were Raised — NOT RAISED!!”
