Young Vito Indicted, Formally Charged With Slim Dunkin Murder

Young Vito was indicted for felony charges of murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm.

Yesterday, a grand jury in Georgia indicted Young Vito in connection with the murder of Brick Squad affiliate Slim Dunkin last year.

According to the Washington Post, Vito, whose real name is Vinson Hardimon, was charged with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony.

Though Vito was considered a suspect early in the case, police officially claim that he shot and killed 24-year-old Dunkin, whose real name was Mario Hamilton, at a recording studio in Atlanta, Georgia.

A trial date is yet to be set for the 29-year-old rapper. HipHopDX will keep you updated.

    In the words of Eminem, "I hope you burn in hell for this shit". I didn't know who Slim Dunkin was pre-murder, but he definitely did not deserve to have his life cut short... all over some Skittles too... smdh

    all i've learned from these comments is that black people get very offended at the suggestion that they can also be racist (which is true, fucking deal with it). as soon as that goreadabook dude flipped the scenario, no one even answered his question, they just started popping off about WE HOOD BOY YOU RACIST. nice guys, way to continue to make black people look ignorant as fuck.

    • Hey idiot

      @anon how can black ppl be racist pls explain black ppl can be prejudice I just don't see black ppl taking the action to be racist u don't hear about groups of black ppl hating every other race!!! My point is all races comes from black so how can we br racist learn the difference between the black panthers and kkk before you talk being prejudice and racist is too different things.. THE ONLY REASON Y U CAN A BLACK A RACIST IS BECAUSE WE HATE EACHOTHER KILL EACHOTHER AND PUT EACHOTHER DOWN ALL DA TIME BUT U CAN'T BE A RACIST IF U HATE YOUR OWN RACE THAT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE. to be a racist u have to hate another race other than your own. Now explain to me how can a black person be a racist if every race started from blacks everyone has black in them there is only one race the human race i could never hate a white guy or say I'm better than a white guy that's like I'm saying I'm better than my son!! Black ppl didn't take action and start slavery, and segregation in America a group of white ppl did No you have to live with it it's da truth so you shut up and deal wit it

    There is a saying like this "Only one himself knows if the shoes match his feet or not If u really love her /him, money ain't nothing but a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He is a banker .We met via ___RichMingle.'C0'M___ a nice place for women and oldermen who have much money, ,Ever feel that you would best enjoy someone who is in your group? If u are really interested in it, maybe u wanna check it out or tell your friends.

      At the end of the day this man died...and you making fun of it regardless of what he did....Your asshole but if you died tomorrow it would be ok for me to make fun of you...instead of making fun of the guy why dont you help people who are turning to a life of a crime maybe you are to scared to do that...tough over the internet doesnt equate to tough off of it...just a thought.

      Double co-sign. If you claim to live that life, brag about how untouchable you are, tell the world how you are strapped, a goon, selling drugs, and glamorizing drugs you can't complain when someone tests you. Look at Tyga. How you talking all that hardcore shit, talking about meet me outside, and get two of your friends shot for being an idiot. These clowns need to stop it before they bring more trouble on themselves

    • wolfman

      Co-sign. Leaving a positive influence on people is how you get respect in death. Not the opposite.

    • def

      that's what happens when you glamorize drug dealing and murdering people. you don't get sympathy from me if you get popped.

      But Boo, when you talk that hardcore gangsta shit and live that life it's warranted.

    • Boo

      Show some respect somebody lost their life. If that happen to your dad or brother I doubt you would be making that same joke.

  • Crisfantom

    Vito should have been a fat white neighborhood watchman. If so, he wouldn't have even been arrested for this.

      @goreadabook, I am a white dude that lives in a predominately black and hispanic neighborhood. I walk around half the wearing a tie, and the other half wearing all black and my reds fitted (I live in chicago, but I am from cincy, so its not me trying to be hood, i just love the reds) and no matter what I am doing I don't get fucked with. Why? Because its my neighborhood too, and people know me. Now if it was the opposite situation. Black guy in a white neighborhood walking around wearing a tie half the time and all black and a reds fitted (even if he was actually a reds fan like myself) white people would think he was just some thug. sad but true.

    • Mr Flamboyant

      @GoReadABook Go eat a dick, you bitch ass nigga. Stop running up on niggas with all that wack shit as well. Zimmerman is a racist bitch and you're a stupid ho. And I don't even begin to debate or talk sense into a stupid ho. The end.

    • RA

      @GoReadABook and dont rebutt wit some ol wack ass "I'm not like that, not all white people are bad"... We all know white folks by themselves is one thing but a group of yall is a whole 'nother. And in this case we talkin bout groups of people and the patterns in their behavior. White supremacy is real and yalls colonization/raping of culture and land is indicative of yalls pernicious nature.

    • RA

      @GoReadaBook but ask yourself y wud u get fucked up??? because your folks have been the primary perpetrators of racist behavior! So because you stab me, and i shoot you in retaliation, im just as bad??? Fuck outa here. Yo white ass belongs to a group of xenophobia maniacs, fckin up the world. Don't just go read a book, read the right books dumbass; before u tryta enlighten folks w/ ya silly ass irrelevant analogy

    • @ go read a book

      yall white people always wanna be againsts some body! Why can't u just agree with the rest of the blacks for once this is a true story about Zimmerman and Vito. Another thing why does white people always try to reverse racism on somebody.. You need to GO READ AH BOOK IT'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING RACIST AND PREJUDICE RACISM IS A ACTION YOU ASSHOLE/IDIOT. Do you ever hear about white ppl getting fucked in the hood?? Nobody ain't finna fuck with yo white ass in the hood the first thing u gon do is call the police n shit like DAT get outta dat scary mindstate it's 2012 u the type of person that will have the police on speaker phone as u walk thru da hood. The fact is WHITE PPL WHO NEVER LIVED A HARDLIFE/IN THE HOOD WHILE ALWAYS HAVE A RACIST STATE OF MIND AND IT REPEATS ITSELF IN HISTORY.. I HAVE A WHITE FRIEND DATS MORE HOOD DEN ANY NIGGA I KNOW IN THE HOOD HE WALK ROUND DA PROJECTS ALL DA TIME MOUTH FULL OF GOLDS AND CHAIN ROUND HIS NEXT NOBODY DON'T FUCK WITH HIM CUZ HE GOT RESPECT

    • GoReadABook

      So y'all are telling me that if my white ass walked into the hood I wouldn't get fucked with solely based on the fact that I am white?? That's racism too dickheads

    • okay

      You dont get it what he saying if Vito was white he problem would have gotten arrested like Zimmerman go look it up. The Feds had to step in because the police was trying to cover it up...research George Zimmerman the neighborhood watch guy that killed a unarmed black kid that had just walked to the store in white neighborhood. He followed the boy and when the person for 911 told dont follow he did it anyway got out the car and chased him...he was on the phone with his girlfriend when the guy pushed him stood over him and shot and killed him. You can hear him saying help me and dont shoot. The guy stood over him and shot even the white neighbors was outraged. You can hear the guy under his breath say coon so dont tell black people racism doesnt exist. If the the show was on the other foot that black guy would have been charged with capital murder the same day the incident happen...now think about that shit.

      agree and they tell black people to get over it and stop using the race card. How can we when racist stuff is still happening? SMH some people are truly clueless about race relations.
