Rapper Young Dolph was shot outside the Hollywood and Highland shopping center in California late Tuesday afternoon.
The 32-year-old Chicago native was hit multiple times and taken to the local hospital, according to Fox 11 LA.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the shooting to the Daily News but would not identify the victim.
Young Dolph, whose real name is Adolph Thornton, Jr., released his debut album, “King of Memphis,” in February 2016. It peaked at No. 49 on the Billboard 200 chart.
He also appeared on the single “Cut It” with O.T. Genasis, which hit No. 35 on the Billboard 100 list.
Originally from Chicago, Young Dolph’s family moved to Memphis, TN when he was two years old. Two of his more well known songs are 100 Shots and Preach. On 100 Shots Dolph laid down how the game worked for the young’uns still wet behind the ears:
Everybody screamin’ “gang, gang, gang!” When folks come an get you you gon’ tell on the whole damn gang … If I ain’t in the bank then I’m on the plane. ‘Bout to go get some money or go spend some money. They stopped me in the airport … had too many benjis on me. They don’t want you live. They don’t want you to ball. Those ___ smile in your face. Then they want you to fall.
Dolph has been making tracking, making noise and making paper. With success comes enemies and apparently had enemies in L.A. This isn’t the first time the rapper has been shot. Below he speaks on a shooting in Charlotte, NC that nearly took his life.
Hopefully Dolph makes a speedy recovery, bigger, badder an hungrier than ever.
