What is Young Dolph's ...beef' with Yo Gotti?

Young Dolph and Yo Gotti were said to have had beef with each other for a long while before the tension came to an end.

The pair allegedly exchanged subtle disses on tracks towards each other, as well as spoke about one another in interviews.

XXL Magazine announced Gotti will be releasing a new album following Dolph's death.

The magazine tweeted the album cover for CM10 on November 24, 2021 with a screenshot of Gotti's Instagram post.

The date for the album's release has yet to be announced.

Gotti and Dolph were both raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and became competitors once Dolph rose up on the Southern hip hop scene.

It's unclear why the two began feuding, but tensions continued to mount in subtle ways.

For example, Dolph named his debut album King of Memphis, a title that fellow Memphis rapper Yo Gotti had repeatedly referred to himself as.

On Feb. 11, 2016, Dolph alleged that Gotti wasn't a fan of his growing success, taking to Twitter to post: ...Bra went from bein my #1 fan and wanting to sign me to bein my BIGGEST HATER....

In 2017, Gotti's CMG artist Black Youngsta took to Instagram to record an expletive-filled video claiming that he was going to ...smack the s***... out of Dolph.

Black Youngsta upped the ante by allegedly showing up in Young Dolph's neighborhood in Memphis with several of his posse, who were heavily armed, reported XXL.

Gotti commented on Youngsta's antics in an interview with Tim Westwood.

“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.”

What did Young Dolph say about his beef with Yo Gotti?

In 2017, Dolph sat down with the Breakfast Club to address his alleged ill-will towards Gotti.

...It ain't no issue,... said Dolph when discussing the rumored rift. ...It ain't no beef. It ain't no nothing. It's just a whole lot of misunderstandings and some stuff I don't respect....

However, Dolph continued to refer to Gotti as ...lame... throughout the interview.

He went on to recall his first time meeting Gotti, where Gotti  used Collective Music Group's Zed Zilla and Starlito to convince him to join CMG records.

...This my first time meeting you,... said Dolph. ...And you going to really sit and downplay your artists and throw your artists under the bus to try to persuade me in to come over there?...

Has Young Dolph been shot before?

Dolph has openly admitted that he has been a target of violence since his teenage years.

“I’ve been targeted since I was 17, 18, 19,” he stated in an interview with The Guardian.

The rapper admitted that he did not grow up in the best surroundings, which caused him to turn to certain methods to make money.

When asked how, he responded: “Hustling – you’ve been seeing it for so long that you start to partake in it.”

“I clocked in when I was 12 and never clocked out”. 

He further explained how his surroundings had an influence on him around that time.

On the night of February 26, Dolph was in Charlotte for Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) tournament weekend.

Before the game, his SUV was reportedly shot at over 100 times at the intersection of 8th and North Caldwell Street near an apartment complex. 

Although it was reported that dozens of the bullets released actually hit the SUV, the ...Preach... rapper was able to walk away unscathed.

After surviving the deadly encounter, Dolph became the victim of another shooting in the same year, but this time in Hollywood, California.

The rapper was shot outside of a retail store.

After being listed in critical condition, Dolph survived the attack and recovered from his injuries.
