Blac Youngsta recently turned himself in to authorities for an alleged connection to a shooting that targeted Young Dolph. The shooting occurred in Charlotte during CIAA weekend.

The beef between Blac Youngsta and Young Dolph was a feud that started in their hometown Memphis. In March 2016, Blac Youngsta allegedly went to Dolph’s neighborhood with several other men who held automatic weapons. Nothing occurred that evening, but the video proved that the two weren’t seeing eye-to-eye.

The two continued to throw subliminal shots at each other. Yo Gotti, Blac Youngsta’s mentor, disapproved of the incident where Blac Youngsta searched for Dolph while carrying guns. “I don’t move like that,” Yo Gotti said in an interview with Tim Westwood. “I’m going to always tell, not only him but, any youngin’ don’t handle your business like this.”

On Feb. 25, a vehicle owned by Dolph was hit with a hail of bullets in Charlotte before the CIAA tournament. Authorities said that over 100 rounds were fired. Dolph was inside the SUV when it was ambushed, but he survived because it was bullet proof. He later revealed that he paid $300,000 to make the vehicle bulletproof. He released an album entitled Bullet Proof weeks later.

The two appeared to have squashed their beef, but police continued their investigation.

Blac Youngsta and two other men surrendered to police in Charlotte after warrants were issued for their arrest.
