According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the man identified as the victim of a shooting at Northside Hospital in Sandy Springs, GA was Melvin Vernell, III better known to the world as Lil Phat. Although not known more in the Trill Entertainment ranks outside of Mouse On Da Track, Foxx and most notably Lil Boosie & Webbie, the 19-year old had plenty of promise with his hilarious inclusion on 2007’s “Independent” where he proclaimed his chick “cooked, clean and didn’t smell like onion rings”.

It may be the main line that sticks out in what was otherwise a budding career as Trill looked to move on from their biggest star’s incarceration. Andrew Noz cited Phat’s “Feel My Pain” as an early sign of his promise that sadly will never be filled.
