Atlanta Rapper Bambino Gold’s Body Found In Alabama

Atlanta rapper Bambino Gold’s body was found in Alabama two weeks after he went missing.

The news sent shock waves throughout the local Atlanta hip hop community. On November 7, Bambino, whose real name is Edward Reeves, and his cousin Kendrick Stokes were reported missing and cops launched an investigation into their disappearance. Sadly, over the weekend, both men bodies were found just miles apart in Alabama, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Details surrounding the incident are still sketchy, but cops are treating their death as a homicide.

Bambino Gold and Kendrick Stokes bodies were found in a wooded area in Macon County, just 40 miles east of Montgomery, Alabama. The first body was found off County Road 13 and the second body was discovered off Highway 80, just four miles from where the first body was discovered. The two men were last seen driving a white 2016 Honda CR-V with Georgia license plates on their way to Alabama. No one knows what happened to them after they left Georgia, but it appears that they were kidnapped and killed.

Family members told police that they have been unable to reach the rapper and his cousin since November 7th. Cops are pleading with anyone with information to come forward.

Artist manager Migo, who managed Rae Sremmurd, took to Instagram to plead with the public for help solving the crime. “No matter what’s going on in the streets nobody deserves to be taken from their family,” Migo wrote. “We have to figure out how to resolve conflicts/problems without taking someone’s life. I been knowing @bambinogoldgpt since he was like 16 it’s sad to see this. We got to do better. We want everyone else to to do better for us but we can’t do right in our own community. RIP.”
