I am disheartened to report Chucky Trill was shot and killed early Friday morning on a Georgia interstate.
Gwinnett County officers responded to a shooting on the southbound Interstate 85 around 3 a.m.
Upon arrival, they found the 33-year-old rapper (born Corey Detiege) shot at least once inside a stopped vehicle.
He was transported to a local hospital where he died.
Chucky Trill’s manager, Bone of Boneafied Entertainment, said the rapper was visiting Atlanta for a scheduled performance during the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities.
Houston rap icon Bun B took to social media to remember Chucky as a good, humble, loyal, and hard-working man.
Damn. This was a good man. Humble. Hard working. Loyal. Determined. Focused. And he had the talent. Queen saw him and told @boneafied “That boy is good. If he don’t have a manager you should do it.” And he did, putting everything he had in it. We are heartbroken this morning and send our deepest condolences to D, Bone and all of his family, friends and supporters. Buy or stream his music and let’s keep his memory alive. #RIPChuckyTrill

My sincerest condolences to the Detiege family and all who knew and loved Corey.
Please STOP the senseless violence.
