Rapper Young Vito Denied Bond In Slim Dunkin Murder Case

UPDATE #2: The man accused of murdering the Brick Squad affiliate was sent back to prison.

Police have determined that rapper Young Vito is a suspect in the murder of Brick Squad affiliate Slim Dunkin, which occurred last week.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 28-year-old, whose real name is Vinson Hardimon, is yet to turn himself in on suspicion of fatally shooting Dunkin in the chest last Friday (Dec. 16th). Police are encouraging him to turn himself in, as they have reason to believe he might be in danger.

"We are urging Mr. Hardimon to turn himself in to authorities because we have reason to believe he may be in danger," read their release.

Police are asking that anyone with information contact Atlanta Crimestoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or contact the Atlanta Police Department's homicide unit at 404-546-4235.

UPDATE: The rapper accused of murdering Slim Dunkin has turned himself in to Atlanta police. According to Access Atlanta, Vinson Hardimon, a/k/a Young Vito, turned himself in to police and is currently being held in Fulton County jail on the charges of murder and gun possession pending a bond hearing.

Atlanta homicide detective David Quinn spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about Vinson's decision to turn himself in and what it means for the case. According to Det. Quinn, the police are still attempting to piece together the story behind the murder and are looking for more witness statements.

"I got a call today from [Vinson's] attorney [and] he said he wished to turn himself in," said Det. Quinn. "There were at least 30 people in the studio at the time of the shooting. They should get in touch with me. We want the facts. It's the right thing to do."

Anyone with further information on the case is advised to contact either Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477 or Det. Quinn at 404-245-8039. A video courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution can be seen below.

UPDATE #2: Young Vito was denied bond yesterday in Fulton County Court and has been returned to the Fulton County Jail on murder and gun possession charges. Atlanta police homicide Detective David Quinn said that Vito was clearly at the scene of the crime when Slim Dunkin was murdered. “His laptop was left behind with his name on it,” Quinn said. “And his name was on the dry-erase board as next up to rap.”

    You live hard..You die hard..Dude dunk was going overboard just a tad too much and it got him murked..One thing for sure was he was a real nigga and he had to know his days was numbered acting the way he was acting..At least he fought his own battles unlike the bricksquad flunkie Ice Burgandy who started beefs with The Game and BOSKOE1 And then sent his enforcer Rosemo700 to rough them up Which led to Rosemo700 getting murked and left planking on a Inglewood CA. street corner..Get real..The days of straight-up fighting are over..No matter how bad you are..You ain't badder than a speeding bullet.

    Gangsta Rap sucks and so do the rappers who do it, It promotes violence and make us a as a culture look bad if you want to kill each other over nonsense and call your selves grown-ass men so be it. but don't bring or hurt innocent ppl or our culture while your at it. You got nothing to prove being gangster doesn't make you cool or sell records anymore ask "Game" or ask "50" we are passed that shit maybe you guys should do the same!!

    Do you really think this was over "candy?" I bet the witness that ratted Vito out did not want everybody else to get in trouble for the "nose candy."

  • Big Dan

    Since there are a lot of "gangstas' on this site, could a reader please explain to me why someone would just eff up their lives like this. Just a week or so before Christmas, this dude just throws his life away. And while we don't have all the facts yet, it seems like it was over nothing! Please explain.

    not a fan of him or his music but rest in peace to the nigga, from what im hearing this all seems like bullshit reasons for a black man to kill another black man

    Hip-Hop 2012 loves the sacrifice of blood. Its that type of religion. If nobody gets shot, somebody should at least get his ass kicked.

    • Big Dan

      It would be nice if that was all that happened. Chubb Rock got a bunch of rappers (EPMD, et al) a while back and did a song called beef, in which, he was talking about all the nonsense violence in the hood. There was a line in the song that went song something life, "back in the day, if you had beef, you loose nothing but teeth, but nowadays, you might die." Let's go back to that.

    • Big Dan

      While this may add to the list of nuts that would go look for him, I am sure those close to Slim Dunkin, who would be criminally minded enough to retaliate, already knew who they were looking for. He was probably in the session or was hanging out with SD all day. It's not like some hungry bum walked in, saw the candy and off-ed the kid and walked out. Unless its a home studio, folks don't usually go in to the studio by themselves. So there are witnesses.

    Wow it's 2011 2Pac and Biggie died over the same shit and they were friends at one point people still caught up with this beef/gang shit if real guys like Pac and BIG didn't make it out of that how are fakes going to make it out and this goes both ways the shooter who wasn't man enough to handle this on his own and the person who died who might have been acting like something he was not. RIP regardless no one deserves to die over bs like this fuck the pigs im no criminal but the pigs are worse let it be the shooter will see how true the phrase what goes around comes around is. One Love, One Thug, One Nation Peace

These niggas fucked hip hop up and continue to do so. So why cry, they got what they wanted. Stop crying about it. Live by the sword die by it.

  • adam

    He is just another typical coon, he should be killed.

  • Razor Words

    Lets remember that a person lost their life over some dumb shit!! Don't make lil clown ass jokes on the young man who lost his life for fighting like a man and a pussy shot him! Young Vito its either you go see them folks with the gold badges or you will see the folks who will take your life for a cash payment! Be a man and face it head up or prepare for a war where a few more black men will loose their lives for nothing. I guess you will make the good white folks happy dead or alive you dumb ass!

    • IAmControverse

      I agree with you except for when you said he died for fighting like a man. Men don't fight over candy. They might as well have been biting each others fingers like that Charlie kid and then have to stand in separate corners and think about what they did.

    I heard it was over them black cheap cany, " nigger babys" we call em up here in Canada!!! Lol.....

  • Mr. Me

    smmfh...somebody loses a life n all ppl can do is make candy jokes-low lifes!...n if u really think a life was taken over a piece of candy then im pretty sure u would believe obama is mexican...the "law" has no evidence n witnesses r not speakin up so they have no motive on y it happen...cops do this all the time outside the gates of hollywood/beverlyhill type of "communities" across america-when they have no evidnce, witnesses, motives, etc... n they dont wanna do all this work they get paid so much to do, they quickly say oh it was gang related or it had to do wit drugs n a bunch of other bs...in this case this man died over somethin deeper n more serious than a punk ass piece of candy

    This was over candy alright!!!! Nose candy is the better term.
