Yo Gotti Young Dolph

Police say rap mogul Mario Mims, aka Yo Gotti, pictured left, is not a person of interest in the attempted murder of 32-year-old Adolph Thornton, Jr., aka Young Dolph, right.

Dolph was shot multiple times during a scuffle in the valet parking area of the Loews Hollywood Hotel on Tuesday.

He is recovering from surgery at a Los Angeles hospital, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.

Police say a fight broke out between Dolph and four men, including Memphis rapper Yo Gotti, and Brandon Mills, president of Cocaine Muzik Group (CMG) and manager of rapper Blac Youngsta, who is signed to Gotti's label.

LAPD Officer Meghan Aguilar said one of the men shoved Dolph to the ground, pulled out a gun and shot him. The wounded rapper dragged himself into the Shoe Palace until police arrived, according to

Gossip webloid TMZ quoted a police source who said Gotti was a person of interest. But Aguilar said Gotti is not a person of interest in the case.

The LAPD arrested Mills late Tuesday. Police are still looking for 3 accomplices.

Gotti and Dolph were guests at the hotel. There is a long-running feud between the two rappers after Dolph's SUV was riddled with bullets in February. Dolph believed Gotti was responsible for shooting up his SUV.

Gotti's artist Blac Youngsta was later taken into custody and charged with shooting the SUV.

    Blacks are the only race that shoot each other to kill in the music industry and other places. We have so much envy and hate toward each other. Smh

  • shun king

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    They took their retarded butts all the way from Memphis to LA with that mess. Does not make any sense that some of the rappers do not know how to act!

  • You Could Never

    All the hotels in the city why were they at the SAME ONE

  • Yoni7

    Almighty bless the state and well being of our black men.

  • Ms.Devereaux

  • Coy little wink

    Mills lookin fine in that suit....that's all I got

  • Renee26

    These dudes can't even really rap..they're taking thugs off the street and trying to make them famous through "music" but they can't even leave the street life behind them. They like the drama and madness

  • Renee26

    Accidentally on purpose you say??

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I think my definition of "Mogul must be off...i need to look that up to see if it's changed?

  • shun king

    these are the folks who need to be boycotted and protested .them two fools have did more damage to the black community than any skin head or kkk member.. but its the opposite they held up in high regard for selling dope rapping about selling dope and killing other blacks and treating women as pure garbage and wonder why the pres of Iran say black people are living in hell in this world and going to hell in the next...he banned all that crap from his country but 90% of the black people think this stuff is just fine...donald trump is the problem.

  • imright

    they aint miss that time ?

  • Ni Ni

    I was going to make a similar comment. This crap has done nothing for our community.

  • ShelbyMoore

    These new wrappers are getting uglier and uglier. Sheesh.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    they're proud of the MONEY they can make (and they'll sell to ANYONE who's able to pay)
    same as trailer park Travis, who will have his own cousin-wife turning tricks at the truck stop for meth rocks. now That's a PROUD dude right there 'cause she's his personal property and he's banking on her 'talent' to bring in the customers!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    and some are going too hard to show how street they are (but they're not really 'about that life') acting, smh

  • Renee26

    Ok! Putting their lives and the lives of the people around them in danger...then want to compare their feuds to Biggie and Pac....dumb

  • lovelygamour

    so basically young gotti don't want to see anyone make it without him. that's why their communities are still poor. let people live. whatever tension there is need to evaporate once you start making money.

  • dontgetblocked

    More BLACK ON BLACK CRIME. Hmmm. When are they going to bend the knee on the football field about that?

  • Mister Fantastic

    Crab mindsets

  • LordeAmbler

    Gotti in that pic looking like "nigga I dont know who shot you, but I might know who did".....

  • We Can Do This

    The glamorization of the coca plant is played out. I would bet not one black or dark person owns coca fields in South America.

    Idiots. A culture of stupidity.

  • We Can Do This

    Drugs are an easy way out. Some feel They never want to work for "The Man" but are to stupid to realize they're selling drugs for "The Man" because no one black owns land in South America where coca plants cultivate. Same goes for heroin.

  • shun king

    drugs are a easy way out of where? them dudes stay stuck in the ghettos they live and die in in they don't got no where at all...selling dope is more of a cool things and way of life they not even making any real money

  • SweetTEE

    Thats gotti

  • Coy little wink

    But isn't that mills next to gotti...



  • We Can Do This

    Out of getting up daily and being on a schedule. Most dealers caught up n that life never had a job and never will.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    I'm just disappointed that they're out here pushing rap, but that's their best creative expression for identifying themselves, smh

  • We Can Do This

    Money grab.

  • sunni_daze

    Wow. Com'on rappers keep the beef on the tracks not the streets and get the fk out the hood.


    The movie the Matrix describes black society today. Most are all plugged in with umbilical cords all over our body leading out to everything thats literally feeding our brain and soul. They are farming us and sustaining us. Social Media, Music, Movies,Reality TV,Brand name Consumerism, Smart Phones, all interconnected in a Matrix . We are Disassociated and Lobotomized, and on auto program. No room left in the consciousnesses to free ourselves.

    Wake up, wake up, wake up...snap out of it.

  • MzTee

    Young Gotti reminds me of Michael Bivens. I think it's the thick block head they both have.

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor
