Hip-Hop Reacts to Young Dolph Being Shot in Los Angeles

News broke earlier today (Sept. 26) that Memphis rapper Young Dolph was shot in Los Angeles.

The Bulletproof MC was shot outside The Shoe Palace at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland at approximately 1 p.m. PDT. TMZ reported Dolph was rushed to an area hospital after being struck and suffered multiple gunshot wounds that appear to be non-life threatening.

While this story is still developing, fellow rappers and members of the hip-hop world have already started sending out prayers and well wishes to Dolph. Rappers like Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and Kid Ink and producers like London On Da Track and Cardo are tweeting out their thoughts and prayers for the Memphis-bred artist.

This isn’t the first time Dolph has had a brush with death this year. Back in February, Dolph was in a SUV that was shot at over 100 times but the rapper came out of the ordeal unscathed. Proving his resilience, Dolph promptly named his April 2017 project Bulletproof. Dolph has been openly involved in a highly-publicized beef with Yo Gotti for some time, and back in May, Gotti’s artist Blac Youngsta turned himself into authorities in connection with the shooting after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Police have detained one person in connection with today’s shooting, but at this time, it’s unclear how many people were involved. XXL has reached out to Dolph’s team and the LAPD for comment.

Check out who in hip-hop is reacting to news of Dolph’s shooting below. Prayers up for Young Dolph in his time of need.
