The lyrics to “Shake Sum” include:
“Young Dolph Thornton wanna play ho/I’m on tour with the K ho/Mac 11, Smith & Wesson, extended clip, 100 rounds though/How the f*** you the king of Memphis, you ain’t from the city, you from Chicago/F*** boy, you better lay low/Killers move when I say so.”

Blac Youngsta’s performance occurred exactly one month after Young Dolph–another Memphis native–was killed. The two took shots at each other throughout 2016, with record executive Yo Gotti serving as the center of their feud. Blac Youngsta was signed to Yo Gotti’s record label, Collective Music Group, around 2015. Tensions rose between the parties over the “King of Memphis” title. Both Young Dolph and Yo Gotti and had given themselves the crown, and Blac Youngsta felt that his music comrade was more deserving of the label.
In 2017, Blac Youngsta and his associates were accused of firing more than 100 rounds of shots into Young Dolph’s vehicle. Although Blac Youngsta was charged for the incident, he insisted that he wasn’t involved. The charges were later dropped in 2019.
On Monday (Dec. 20), Blac Youngsta appeared to have issued a response to those who took an issue with his Dallas performance. In an Instagram post, he stated:
“I’m the type of n***a who ain’t neva sat back and looked for nobody to feel sorry fa me!”
“I come from the heart of South Memphis where you get no sympathy, don’t even know what that is. With that being said, I could give 2 fucks what the world think about me.”
“I’m on my third life so can’t shit nobody say, think or feel toward me slow me down or stop me. I’m a man of God when it’s all said and done. I ain’t gotta answer to no one but him when it’s all said and done right?”
Young Dolph was shot to death on Nov. 17 while picking up a cookie order. Two men wearing masks were captured on surveillance footage, but no arrests have been made.
