Seven months have passed since Young Dolph survived the second attempt on his life in under a year. Shooting No. 2 was even more controversial than the first one, seeing how Yo Gotti wound up being taken in as a person of interest.
Over the weekend, it became clear that a couple of near death experiences won’t be enough for Dolph to let go of their four-year-long beef. Video footage has been circulating social media since Dolph’s performance at the Gas Monkey Live! (May 27).
The clip shows the Dallas crowd chanting “F*** Yo Gotti!” repeatedly before he cuts in to request that they put an end to their instigating. Then, following an awkward pause, he riled them up again by calling on the DJ to play his menacing Yo Gotti diss track, “Play Wit Yo’ B*tch.”
“Hold up, hold up, hold up… We ain’t going to do him like that, man,” Dolph told his audience, before shifting gears with a: “Sike!” Dolph and Yo Gotti have been quarreling since 2014, when he informed listeners that his Memphis counterpart had a vendetta against him because he refused to sign with CMG.
Eventually, others would get involved in the feud, with Blac Youngsta being one of the more vocal nemesis to back Gotti against Dolph. Months prior to last September’s shooting, Youngsta was arrested after authorities suspected him of being involved in an incident involving 100 shots being fired at Dolph’s bulletproof SUV.
