The 34-year-old Atlanta rapper, Trouble, reportedly died on Sunday after being fatally shot in Georgia.

Trouble, whose real name was Mariel Semonte Orr, is a well-known artist who collaborated with high-profile hip-hop stars including Drake, Quavo and Fetty Wap. He was fatally shot in Georgia, officials claimed.

Trouble tragically died of a gunshot wound as pronounced at a hospital on Sunday. A spokesperson for the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Trouble was shot at an apartment in Conyers, Georgia. He was visiting a woman at the time, about 25 miles away from his hometown of Atlanta, before the attack.

The sheriff confirmed and announced in a Facebook post that 33-year-old Jamicheal L. Jones is wanted for murder, aggravated assault, home invasion and battery. Jones, the suspect, was involved in a "domestic situation" with the woman Trouble was visiting. According to the officials, Jones did not know the rapper. Jones apparently breached the woman's residence and opened fire, striking Trouble in the chest once. Meanwhile, the woman, who was not identified, was not reported as injured.

The rapper's death was confirmed Sunday by his record label, Def Jam. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the children, loved ones, and fans of Trouble," the label posted. "A true voice for his city and an inspiration to the community he proudly represented." Drake is among the stars who have paid tribute to the rapper since the news of his death broke. Artists such as Gucci Mane, T.I. and Meek Mill have also paid tribute.

Trouble released his debut album in 2018, titled "Edgewood," the album included the songs "Bring it Back," which features Drake, "Come Thru," which features The Weeknd, and "Rider," which features Quavo and Fetty Wap.

Trouble, also known as Skoob, initially earned his fame through his single "Bussin'" in 2011, with eight further mixtapes following it in the years after. He also appeared as a guest artist on Young Thug and Lupe Fiasco releases. These led to various collaborations with worldwide artists and producers, including Gucci Mane. His works gathered a wide range of supporters, and Trouble's music videos also earned millions of views online.
