Police say they received a call about 10 to 25 gunshots at the scene. It happened outside the Urban Pie pizza restaurant located on Hosea L. Williams Drive. The business is across from a police precinct.

Mazi was known for his collaborations with rappers Rich Homie Quan and Yung Thug.

When he survived a shooting at a Buckhead Waffle House in December, Yung Mazi tweeted “God made me bulletproof”. He had also claimed to have been shot a dozen times, and even directed his fans on Twitter to a video titled “Take My Life”.
