Atlanta rapper Yung Mazi was shot and killed last night in the area’s Kirkwood community.
As XXL report, the star was previously shot on December 27th of last year, making this his second time being attacked in eight months.

My legs done had enough,” he says in the video, which you can see below. “So tell your shooter start aiming for some shit that’s gonna kill somebody. These n****s aiming for legs, My legs are tired of this shit.”

Williams Drive at around 8:55 p.m. Mazi was found with multiple gunshot wounds outside a pizza restaurant named Urban Pie. The suspect is described as a black male with dreadlocks and wearing a white t-shirt.
