The shooting adds to a series of incidents occurring at recording studios in the area in the past two years, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Locals have been complaining about the high levels of criminal activity in the neighborhood, with some wanting the studio shut down, WSB reported.

"Just dozens and dozens by people in the neighborhood," Grayson Daughters, with the neighborhood association, said, according to WSB-TV. "And I don't think anyone was the least bit surprised it ended like this, and I'm so sorry someone had to die there."

White was signed by rapper 2 Chainz and was best known for his song "Hot Boy," according to Billboard. The rap group Travis Porter have used the studio, which is partly owned by 2 Chainz.

Juicy J and 2 Chainz, as well as fans, took to Twitter to commemorate White with the hashtag #LongLiveBankroll.
