Atlanta rapper Yung Teddy was shot to death yesterday after he posted a message to Twitter that indicated he was being threatened. "N----s wanna see me dead" read the tweet, and mere hours later the rapper was found dead.

Global Grind reports that the rapper, born Justin Mitchell, also posted a photo of a menacing text message he was sent on his Instagram account. Both of his social media posts appear to be mocking the threats and not reflecting fear.
