Atlanta Rapper Yung Teddy Found Murdered After Tweeting About Death Threat

An up-and-coming Atlanta rapper was found dead hours after Tweeting a death threat he received.

It looks like tragedy has already struck the local Atlanta Hip Hop scene just days into the new year. According to a recent report from AllHipHop, an up-and-coming Atlanta rapper Yung Teddy was found dead just hours after Tweeting about a death threat he received.

On January 2 at 10:18 PM, Yung Teddy - né Justin Mitchell, age 23 - was found dead from a gunshot wound in his apartment in Austell, a suburb of Atlanta. According to reports, Mitchell had Tweeted about receiving a text message death threat five hours before his death, writing that, "niggas wanna see me dead."

Witness reports indicate that two men were seen at the scene of the crime directly before Mitchell's murder. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the first suspect is a black man between the ages of 20 and 23 with a thin build and a height of between 5'6" and 5'9". He was wearing a grey sweater, a beanie and dark pants, and was armed with a pistol.

The second suspect wanted for questioning is black man between 5'4" and 5'6" tall. Reports indicate he was wearing a multi-colored beanie and a navy blue bandanna tied around his face at the time of the crime.

Anyone with information on the suspects are encouraged to contact police at the number 770-499-3945. A screen cap of the death threat that Mitchell received prior to his murder can be found below.

    god, if you're watching the comment section right now, please trade yung teddy for chief keef. I understand teddy was an "aspiring" rapper and all, but I'd much rather you didn't take an innocent soul than to literally give us hell on earth when you created chief keef. i can't stand his music. In fact, I find the sound of two dead cats mating to be much more refreshing than listening to his music. So please, merciful god, take keef's life instead. amen.

    It is a shame and disgrace that so many people on here do not have any manners. whether the young man lived to your liking or not ...there is a death that occurred and no man has the right to take anyone's life. If you really believe that it is alright for someone to have killed this young man then you really need help badly. what if it was your mother or child who was killed? Would you feel the same...probably not. I hope they chase those evil beings down and put them under the jail for life. People like some of you that speak of death as a joke need to have a wake up call and that wake up call will be when you have to answer at judgment day for your actions on this blog. You should be ashamed of yourself. The KKK is right, they don't have to think about killing black people, they are doing it to themselves. Wake UP! Stop all this nonsense and do better.

    Are any rappers down there actually from Atlanta, or do they all live in boondock suburbs? I mean, I think TI is from Atlanta, but Outkast rep East Pointe and College Park, granted those are less suburban and adjacent to Atlanta.. But damn, most of ya'll live in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the forest...and wonder why people refer to people "from Atlanta" as country as hell. Your nearest neighbor is a squirrel.

    • Chicago Slim

      when your closest neighbhor is more than 100 feet away, and there are way more trees than people and bumbling brook and creek, that's country. When you have 8 80 plus foot trees in our front yard, that's country as hell! man, y'all are sheltered as hell out there in the boondocks outside of Atlanta. It's crazy, people claim Atlanta and act like it's a big city. the city itself is tiny, like 400k, shoot Milwaukee is much bigger and urban. Atlanta is straight up suburban. Where you from? Atlanta? Where bankhead? No Smyrna. No friend, you ain't from Atlanta. I've been to Smyrna which is right next to Austell, no? It's country and straight up brand new suburban in the middle of the woods. Back to my original question. any ATL rappers actually from ATL? I saw a documentary on TI and he was from Bankhead, no?

    • Atl2Trill

      @gwap T.I. a high school drop out and didn't graduate. Now the P$C is from that way though. Kuntry King was a hoop star back in the day and not a d-boy. Mableton is kinda country though. Stayed in Austell a few yrs myself.

    • gwap

      Mableton is not country?? You must have never been there and and no one said Mableton is in ATl its a suburb of Atlanta... and of course you wouldnt have herd of him he was a Mableton/Ausell local idek how he got on this site

    • babyface

      AND COREY just proved his point! lol Mableton IS country....and even though its close to ATL....IT AINT ATL. btw, never heard of yung teddy until he died and yes im from the HEART OF ATL.

    • gwap

      actually they not from the boomdocks or country this dude is from austell/Mableton with is only 5 mins out side of atl with is not the country TI is from the same place he graduated from my high school in Mableton and east point aand college park are in the same boat there like 5 mins outside of atlanta whenn you live in mableton you can use to walk to bank head courts in like 10 mins which is in atl

    Nigga knew he was fucking with some real killa yet he still called his bluff. Like it or not, he had it coming. I don't feel sorry for him, but R.I.P. anyway.


    So glad he got THAT WORK! Makes more room for the REAL brothas in the struggle who actually DO POSITIVE things in their life. Don't worry, he's out of the matrix, and is now about to start fighting machines and shit. lol

    A huge portion of blacks in America has gotten dumber since the middle part of the 20th century. Strong dangerous black men used to have a brain back in the day and be able to use English in a proper (though damn colorful!) way. That's just a fact. Sad to see

      That's what a plethora of the CIA's drugs and prison sentences for drug dealers and users will do to the people and the community. you think this was done on accident? Historically the black man isn't a violent individual, his white counterpart is, always has been and always will be. The black man traveled to and from america before Europeans and Spanish were even aware of a safe route to get there. We lived amongst and traded with native Americans and went back to our own country. But when the Europeans arrived they had to control and conquer everyone and everything in sight. What you see before us was done strategically, but there are still intelligent black men and women and its time for us to rise up for real. They knew what they were doing when they divided the panthers up, J edgar hoover even admitted that it wasn't the police patrols that the panthers were doing and how they undermined the cops, he said it was the free breakfasts and sickle cell tests that was "giving black people hope" they don't want us to see the light and they never have. Let's educate our selves and everyone around us and let's take action. Peace

    But anybody could have sent that text. They would need to find the gun which I bet is already gone.

  • .....

    This is pretty terrible, but if the cops can't catch the dude then they have got to be the worst investigators ever. The fucking phone number is right there. Seriously even if the dude that sent the text didn't do it, then he's still pretty fucked for sending this anyways. They're not going to let you off for a threat, police take that seriously.

    Another life cut tragically short, probably over nothing at all, just ego. How dumb to you have to be to send a text with a real death threat (not that choreographed rapper feud shit). If you're going to play the gangsta surely he sees your face before you pull the trigger you don't give him a chance to fucking tweet about it. Fools, they deserve to get caught. If it wasn't this kid it was going to be someone else in their firing line.
