Young Dolph feud
Here’s a timeline of the beef between Young Dolph and Yo Gotti according to XXL Mag.
In 2014, following the release of his mixtape, High Class Street Music 4: American Gangster, Young Dolph would make an appearance on Sway in the Morning to discuss the project.
During the interview, Dolph would touch on his decision not to sign a record deal with Yo Gotti, explaining that he would rather see his own investment in himself through than latch onto another artist’s movement.
Dolph would later point to Yo Gotti taking offense to Dolph’s decision as the root of their beef, although Gotti has never confirmed that notion.
The tension between Young Dolph and Yo Gotti surfaced on February 11, 2016, when Dolph subtly took a dig at his Memphis counterpart.
Using Twitter to express his sentiments, Dolph claimed that Yo Gotti was not supportive of his rising success. He tweeted,
“Bra went from being my #1 fan and wanting to sign me to being my BIGGEST HATER,” alluding to Gotti’s unsuccessful attempt to sign Dolph to his CMG label.
Although Dolph didn’t explicitly mention Gotti’s name, it was evident whom he was addressing. This sparked a series of events that rapidly intensified the conflict between them.
The Young Dolph and Yo Gotti beef began to take a turn for the worse on March 2, 2017, when Gotti’s CMG artist Black Youngsta posted a clip on his own Instagram account disparaging Dolph and calling into question his claim of being “King of Memphis.”
“Dolph, if you got a problem, say you got a problem,” says Youngsta in the video, which has since been removed from his Instagram account.
He then went on to further diss Dolph, “You ain’t even no King of Memphis, he ain’t from the city, b#tc#.”
In an interview, Yo Gotti advised his artist to be more circumspect.
“Lil’ homie on the team so I’m going to always give him the proper advice that I believe I should give him from like a big brother standpoint or just being the homie standpoint,” Gotti states in the clip.
“My advice you know I don’t move like that. I’m going to always tell, not only him but, any youngin’ don’t handle your business like this.”
After taking the high road for the most part in regards to his beef with Yo Gotti and Blac Youngsta, on March 16, 2016, Young Dolph responded with a few words of his own, via his Instagram account. Posting a series of clips, Dolph would spare no words, accusing Gotti of hating on Memphis rap legends like Three 6 Mafia, 8Ball & MJG and others, as well as sending Blac Youngsta to fight his battle and calling the cops on him.
“First thang first everybody kno it’s u HO GOTTI, dats sendin your artist out to say da lame shit he been sayin and doin,” Dolph wrote in his Instagram caption, adding,
“I GUESS U STILL MAD CAUSE I DIDN’T NEVER SIGN WIT YO ***********.. Or is u still in your feelings cause u fail out wit Gucci Mane and u was mad at me cause I kept rockin wit Gucci.”
He would also threaten Young Dolph in the post’s caption, writing, “WHEN I C @YOUNGDOLPH IMA SMACK THE SH#T OUT EM, ON MY LIFE,” leaving no question as to the drama between Young Dolph and Yo Gotti being as real as the rumors had suggested.
On Sept. 9, 2016, months after exchanging words with Young Dolph, Blac Youngsta declared the beef as squashed during an interview.
It was with the backdrop of all this tension that Young Dolph got killed and Yo Gotti Big Brother was fingered as the suspect.
Initially, Young Dolph was the target of a shooting in Charlotte, N.C., in which over 100 rounds were fired at his vehicle.
However, he escaped unscathed, due to the SUV he was riding in being bulletproof.
At a show later that night, he performed his Yo Gotti diss track “Play With Yo’ B###h,”
In September 2017, Young Dolph was the victim of a shooting in Hollywood and rushed to the hospital.
Police investigators refuted news that Yo Gotti was a person of interest in the shooting but many believed his Big Brother Jook at least was involved!
