A week after the release of the music video more than 100 shots were fired at Young Dolph’s bulletproof SUV in an incident in Charlotte, North Carolina, leaving the rapper unharmed. Dolph took to Twitter where he wrote “u loose”, and even performed at a club the same night.
Young Dolph Shot
In September 2017 Young Dolph was shot and left in a critical but stable condition after an argument in the valet parking area of the Loews Hollywood hotel. According to Meghan Aguilar who is an LAPD detective, the shooting occurred after an argument with three men which escalated to a physical fight “at one point, Young Dolph was knocked to the ground. And then one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and began shooting at him.”
After the incidence, Yo Gotti was named as a person of interest due to their beef. A rapper signed to Yo Gotti label, Black Youngsta was charged along with two others as a van involved in the shooting was under his name. Black Youngsta maintained his innocence claiming that the van under his name was stolen.
