Late last night the news broke that rapper Bankroll Fresh had been shot and killed outside of Street Exec Studios in Atlanta. Fresh, who was born Trentavious White, was immediately rushed to the hospital but died en route. 11 Alive has reported that 50 shell casings were found at the scene and that Police are still searching for the murderer or murderers.
With the release of Life of a Hot Boy in 2014, the sequel Life of a Hot Boy 2 last year, and his self-titled mixtape, Bankroll had made noise as one of the more promising artists to pop out of Atlanta in some years. Many of his colleagues, friends, and admirers have taken to social media today to pay their respects to their fallen comrade.
