Bad news for the rapper, Young Dolph – whose real name is Adolph Thornton Junior – as the 32-year-old rapper was taken to the hospital after being shot at in Hollywood. In a report from TMZ, the rapper was apparently outside of Shoe Palace when an SUV attempted to murder him by gunfire.
Reports claim he suffered multiple gunshot wounds but his injuries are non-life-threatening at the moment.
Unfortunately for Young Dolph, this isn’t the first time someone has shot at him. In February, his SUV was fired on over one hundred times while in Charlotte, NC. Rapper Blac Youngsta turned himself into the authorities after police issued a warrant for his detainment.
In a report from XXL Mag, Yo Gotti is named a primary suspect in the shooting which left Dolph in the hospital nursing severe wounds. Allegedly, Gotti and Dolph were staying at the same hotel in Hollywood when their friends got into a physical altercation.
The organization claimed that it happened in a valet parking area of the Loews Hotel. Meghan Aguilar – an officer of the LAPD – claimed: “they had an argument which escalated into a physical fight.” Not long after, Young Dolph hit the ground and someone began shooting at him.
The LAPD claimed the suspect in question was seen in a gold Cadillac Escalade and after the police searched for the vehicle they found it abandoned near Highland and Franklin avenues.
The rappers who hail from Memphis Tennessee have been embroiled in a public feud for a while now. According to rumor, Gotti wanted Young Dolph to sign to his record label, but he turned him down. Their professional disagreement became personal quickly resulting in Young Dolph almost losing his life. However, this is merely speculation as Gotti has not been proven guilty as of yet if he had any part in the altercation at all.
