The Memphis Police Department and U.S. Marshals are still on a nationwide manhunt for the aspiring rapper, who calls himself "Straight Drop." It is reported that officials viewed his music video for clues to his whereabouts.
The home where the music video was filmed is the same location where the getaway vehicle, a white Mercedes Benz was found abandoned.
According to Fox13 Memphis, an attorney representing Johnson said he was unaware of the rapper's plan to turn himself in.
Johnson posted on his Instagram story last week:
"Turning Myself In Monday @ 201. I'm Innocent. I'll Be Back Sooner Than You Can Blink." He also had a message for bloggers: "Next time post the REAL .. BS blogs."
Johnson is wanted on charges of First-Degree murder, Criminal Attempt-First Degree Murder, and Theft of Property valued between $10,000-$60,000.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marshals Service, and Crime Stoppers have offered a reward of $15,000 for tips leading to Johnson's capture.

Instagram users suggested the money and cars were payoff for the hit on the famous rapper.
"To add insult to injury, Johnson is seen wearing a Paper Route Entertainment charm on his belt in a picture taken just before Dolph's murder. Many are suggesting he got the charm after a previous run-in with Dolph and his crew before the shooting."

FYI: This post contains disturbing allegations about the sexual assault of a minor child. No one has been charged, and the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty.
A Florida woman claims her ex-boyfriend, Doodie Lo, sexually assaulted her 5-year-old son for a month before the child told her what happened.
FTN Bae, a former stripper, shared the disturbing details in graphic posts on social media. She also shared audio of her son crying and explaining what allegedly happened to him.
FTN Bae captioned the audio clip:
"What your hearing is my 5-year-old son Wesley cry to me about what my ex-boyfriend @otf_doodielo (david) did to him [sic]."
She said she reported the incident to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, and an investigation is currently under way.
The aspiring rapper has lawyered up and is denying the allegations.
FTN Bae captioned the post:
"For the last 2 months my son was pooping in his pants it was so bad i had to put diapers back on him," she continued. "October 1st my son finally told me what had happened to him. i'm thankful to God because a lot of kids DONT speak up because they were scared just like my son. I have been dealing with this for almost a month and its been the hardest thing I HAVE EVER HAD TO DO IN MY LIFE & I WILL NOT remain quit for one more second."
"August 6th i had a show in Orlando & @otf_doodielo was at my house along with my roommate and my son and his 3 year old cousin. Once i left this SICK man welted 3 screws (that he found in my toolbox) and shoved them up my sons anus. Scared and afraid my son hid the screws outside so he 'couldn’t find it & do it again' and never told me about it. He was trying to be sooo tough that he dealt with this for 2 months and it clearly was AFFECTING him. NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS i would think this would be my story ('my boyfriend sexually assaulting my son') My son and my life will never be the same. This is not a sympathy post or a clout post this is simply me a heartbroken mother WHO IS DOING EVERYTHING i can do for justice for MY SON ! While i'm patiently waiting for the police to complete there investigation I NEEDED to speak up and expose this SICK MAN to warn other females with kids and maybe other girls who dealt with him should talk to there kids. This couldn’t have been his first time but he picked the right family to f**k with. You just never know who people really are & what there capable of. Stay blessed."

Parents are outraged after rapper T.I.'s 17-year-old son, King, shared a video featuring strippers at his birthday bash on his Instagram Story.
King is the son of rapper Tip "T.I." Harris, 40, and Xscape singer Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 45.
King, who has over 720K followers on Instagram, was featured on T.I. and Tiny's now-canceled reality TV series.
The aspiring rapper who goes by the stage name "Kid Saiyan" turned 17 on August 25. To celebrate, the youngster smoked marijuana while filming nude, gyrating strippers on his cell phone. The floor is littered with dollar bills.
The video is still live on Instagram despite the fact that he is underage and most of his followers are minors.
Parents complained that King exposed their children to adult situations by sharing the inappropriate video on his feed.
Parents say they have contacted child protective services to report the child smoking marijuana while nude strippers dance.
Many parents asked where are his parents, while others noted that King is his father's son.
Question: Would you allow your 17-year-old son to smoke weed and hire nude women to dance for him?

Former Love & Hip-Hop: Miami has been arrested on domestic violence and kidnapping charges.
Christopher Michael Harty, aka Prince, was taken into custody on Wednesday, Aug. 11, in Miami, Florida The Sun reports.
In addition to domestic violence charges, Prince, 31, faces charges of kidnapping and battery. He was also charged with less-serious offenses, including possession of drugs without a prescription and disorderly conduct.
Prince was among the original cast of Love & Hip Hop: Miami when the series premiered in 2018, but he was edited out of the third season. He has not been confirmed to return for the delayed fourth season.
Prince has continued releasing music since being booted from the series, and he released his most recent single in June.
Before falling afoul of the law, Prince was due to appear at a press conference on Wednesday night to promote his Celebrity Boxing match against TikTok star HolyGod, which is scheduled for October 2, but he was a no show.
In May, TMZ reported that Prince was involved in a physical altercation with rapper Tory Lanez, the same star who was charged with felony assault after he allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion in the foot last summer.
The self-proclaimed "Fresh Prince of South Beach" was born and raised in South Miami to Jamaican parents.
