The rapper was killed outside of a Kirkwood pizza place.

Atlanta rapper and Kevin Gates affiliate Yung Mazi was shot and killed on Sunday night (August 6th). According to Atlanta’s local NBC affiliate, Mazi was shot multiple times in the Kirkwood neighborhood in front of a pizza place called Urban Pie. Local authorities say that they responded to the shooting near the intersection of Oakview Road and Hosea L. Williams Drive around 8:55 p.m on Sunday; the incident occurred close enough to their local precinct that they responded to the sounds of it.

Mazi had apparently ordered a pizza from the restaurant and was standing next to his car while waiting for it when he was shot. When the police arrived, they found Mazi and attempted to revive him. The rapper, whose birth name was Jibril Abdur-Rahman, died on the scene.
