Tributes pour in on Twitter for Chaka Zulu, beloved music veteran and longtime manager of rapper Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges.

Zulu and two others were shot at 11:35 p.m. Sunday during a dispute in the parking lot behind Apt4b, a Caribbean restaurant and bar on the 2200 block of Peachtree Road in Buckhead.

All three men were transported to area hospitals where one victim was pronounced dead. Zulu was shot twice in the chest and underwent 2 surgeries early Monday. He is on a ventilator in an ICU.

In a statement to Channel 2 Action News reporter Michael Seiden, former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said, “We are fortunate to report that Chaka Zulu is in stable condition and recovering. The family thanks everyone for their well wishes and prayers, and asks for their privacy at this time.”

In 1998 Chaka (left) co-founded the record label Disturbing tha Peace with Ludacris and Jeff Dixon.

Their artists have included R&B singer Bobby V, and rappers Shawnna and Chingy.

The independent label was created to serve as a platform for rappers from the “Dirty South” including Ludacris, a then-radio DJ who couldn’t score a major label record deal at the time.
