Trentavious Zamon White Sr. (August 2, 1987 – March 4, 2016), better known by his stage name Bankroll Fresh or Yung Fresh, was an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. Fresh is best known for his 2015 single "Walked In".[1] He starred in the independent short film Take Over Your Trap in 2016.

Career[edit]

White originally rapped under the alias Yung Fresh, and under this alias appeared alongside Gucci Mane on multiple records.[2] In 2014, Fresh collaborated with Mike Will Made It, on the song "Screen Door". Fresh later also made a guest appearance on song "For the Love", which appeared on Metro Boomin's 2013 mixtape 19 & Boomin.[3] Fresh had a hit of his own with the 2014 single "Hot Boy", and the same year, he released the mixtape Life of a Hot Boy.[2][4] In 2015, Fresh released Life of a Hot Boy 2,[2] and later that year, Fresh followed it up with a self-titled mixtape.[5] In February 2016, he released a video for his song "Poppin' Shit".[6] Fresh was also featured on Jeezy's hit "All There". The music video was released posthumously. Jeezy dedicated it to Fresh, filming the video in his hood with Fresh's family.

Death[edit]

After an altercation with a childhood friend, Atlanta rapper No Plug, Fresh was shot at Street Execs studio and later died at a local hospital on March 4, 2016.[7][8][9] It was reported that more than 50 shell casings were at the scene of the crime. Many celebrities and friends including Chris Baldwin, 2 Chainz, Post Malone, Lil Wayne, Left Brain and Plies along with his two children, family and friends mourned the death of the rapper.[7]

No Plug later said in an online interview that he shot Fresh in self-defense; he was not charged or called a suspect.[10] The investigation of Fresh's death was closed in June 2018 after authorities stated that Fresh fired the first rounds with an SKS-style at the vehicle of No Plug and his entourage outside of the Street Execs studio, saying that the returning gunfire from No Plug's passengers – which hit Fresh – was an act of self-defense.[11]
