Yung Teddy Dead: Atlanta Rapper Murdered After Posting Twitter, Text Threats


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.

Sadly, it appears that these threats were not made in vain. Police are still looking into the murder, but the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the 23-year-old was found dead in his home last night around 10PM, and that the authorities already have two suspects.
