Home Of Slain Rapper Bankroll Fresh’s Mother SHOT UP; Rapper’s Cousin Injured In Attack

The home of slain rapper Bankroll Fresh’s mother was sprayed with bullets from an assault rifle overnight, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

More than a dozen shots were fired at the northwest Atlanta home in what is being described as a drive-by style shooting. One of Bankroll Fresh’s cousins, a 24 year old female who was at the home with her aunt, was grazed by a bullet.

Police have not revealed a motive or any potential suspects, according to reports.

Bankroll Fresh, born Trentavious White, died in a hail of gunfire at 2 Chainz’s Street Execs Studios in 2016. He was 28 years old.

Police said dozens of rounds were fired in the killing; neighbors told investigators there were so many gunshots fired that they thought they were hearing fireworks.

Police said more than 50 shell casings were eventually found.

Bankroll Fresh was affiliated with College Park rapper 2 Chainz but had also recorded with several of other big-name Atlanta talents including Gucci Mane, T.I., Young Jeezy, and Zaytoven.

Bankroll was best known for his hit track, “Hot Boy”, which referenced Juvenile, Lil Wayne and Cash Money Records’ Hot Boys recording group of the 1990s.

Bankroll’s mother, who once drove for the city’s MARTA transit system, started a foundation after her son’s death, and also launched a clothing line, Street Money Apparel, in her son’s honor–and to support the children who were left behind in the aftermath of his murder. 

In a 2017 interview with XXL Magazine, Bankroll’s mother described struggling to keep Bankroll–her only child–away from the streets while he was growing up, and into the books.

His mother’s support was pivotal, the rapper told friends, in his ascension as a rap artist.

“He knew he was gonna go to school and he was gonna graduate high school and I put it out there as a parent like, but if you’re not going to college, you gotta tell me what you wanna do. A child of mine will not be hanging out on the corners with his friends not doing nothing, you gotta do something. So from that day on, he started getting into the music.”
