The untimely passing of Young Dolph is still being felt throughout the Hip Hop industry. His fellow peers are memorializing Dolph through freestyles and social media posts, but others are showing they don’t care.
Over the weekend, footage of Blac Youngsta performing at Aces of Dallas nightclub in Dallas, Texas surfaced online, and although it seemed like a harmless occasion, Blac’s song choice may not have been the best. In the video, fans see Blac rapping with conviction to “Shake Sum,” his 2016 diss track aimed at Young Dolph.
The moment instantly turned fans off in Akademiks’ comment section with many saying how distasteful Blac Youngsta was for performing the song.
