What was Young Dolph and Yo Gotti’s beef all about?
It is unclear why the two Memphis rappers began beefing.
However, they became competitors after Young Dolph rose to fame in the Southern hip hop scene. The 36-year-old’s debut album was called King of Memphis, a title that Yo Gotti used to refer to himself.
Then, in 2016, the Paper Route Empire owner alleged that Yo Gotti wasn’t a fan of his soaring success. Taking to Twitter, the star wrote, “Bra went from bein my #1 fan and wanting to sign me to bein my BIGGEST HATER.”
The beef turned sourer when Blac Youngsta, an artist signed to Yo Gotti’s label Collective Music Group (CMG), took to Instagram to record a video threatening to “smack the s***” out of Young Dolph.
