The body of rising Atlanta rapper Yung Teddy, 23, (pictured) was discovered at his Austell, Ga., home on Wednesday evening; he had been shot to death.  In a cryptic message about his life, the rapper sent out a tweet a day before stating that there were people who wanted him dead, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Teddy, whose actual name was Justin Mitchell, developed quite a large following in the Atlanta area. The young hip-hop performer was promoting a mixed tape, “Right On Time,” and even had a music video for the single “Tru,” which has thus far garnered nearly 40,000 hits on YouTube.

The day after New Year’s Teddy tweeted:

“NIGGAS WANNA SEE ME DEAD”

A few hours after he posted his message on Twitter, he was found dead.

Cobb County police are seeking two black male suspects. The first is described as having a thin build, between 20 and 23 years old, and about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-9. He was last seen wearing a gray sweater, dark pants and a black beanie hat. He was armed with a handgun.

The second suspect is 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6 tall. He was last seen wearing a multicolored beanie hat and a navy blue bandana covering his face.

So far, police are still investigating a motive behind the killing and are asking anyone with information to contact their department at 770-499-3945.
