Young Dolph and Yo Gotti have had a well-documented beef for what seems like forever now, beginning when Gotti failed to sign the young rapper to his label back in 2014. Since then, there have been some very public shots fired, both verbal and physical, that have only added to the alleged hatred that cropped up between the two Memphis natives. Things came to a head earlier this summer, when Young Dolph was shot in what looked like a murder attempt. Thankfully, he did not succumb to those wounds and has since made a full recovery, but Yo Gotti was suspected to have some hand in making that happen.
Earlier today, Young Dolph dropped by The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 and chatted with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God about a variety of topics, including his long-standing beef with Gotti. Charlamagne called both men “cool individuals” and all three hosts asked him, in their own ways, if he could ever reconcile his differences with the “Rake It Up” emcee. In short, the answer from Dolph was a flat “no.” As you can see in the Instagram video clip above, the rapper was clearly unwilling to give too detailed an answer to the question, presumably because the thought of being on speaking terms with Yo Gotti is unfathomable at this point. However, he eventually relented and spoke about why he chooses to remain distant from his Memphis cohort.
“There ain’t nothing to move forward from,” he explained. “If I don’t respect you, if there’s something about you I just don’t respect, I just can’t sit and fake it,” he added later on. A pretty double-edged response to be sure, but it echoes similar sentiments when Yo Gotti was a guest on the same radio program not long ago. “I don’t got no issue,” Gotti told Charlamagne when he was asked the same question. “It’s probably the second or third time I’ve been up in here and said the same thing.” He doesn’t think the beef has gone too far but, clearly, the public perception is totally different.
