Young Dolph – Attorney Denies Representing One Rapper’s Alleged Killers

Update #1: It looks like Attorney Arthur Horne has responded to the unconfirmed rumors that he would be representing Justin Johnson in the Young Dolph murder case. Horne took to his Instagram account and released a statement denying the rumors. See statement below:


Original Story: While details surrounding the Young Dolph murder case continue to unfold, the latest discovery has many people shocked. Earlier this week, police arrested Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith–the two men who are allegedly responsible for the murder of rapper Young Dolph.  Well now, it appears Justin Johnson has hired attorney Arthur Horne– the same lawyer that managed to get Blac Youngsta’s charges dropped in the 2017 shooting of Young Dolph in Charlotte, NC. While this is still an unconfirmed rumor, it hasn’t stopped the internet from buzzing over this alleged plot twist.

As previously reported, back in 2017, rapper Blac Youngsta was arrested for felony weapons charges, when over 100 rounds were fired at Dolph’s SUV while he was in Charlotte, N.C. Although the rapper was charged for the incident, he insisted that he wasn’t involved. Youngsta managed to get all of the charges dropped in the case in 2020.

Accused killer, Justin Johnson who is also a rapper named Straight Drop, was arrested Tuesday (Jan.13) for the murder of Young Dolph and is being charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, and theft. Before his arrest, Johnson shot a music video while on the run from the feds. The music video was done at the home where the getaway car used in Dolph’s murder was found.

Young Dolph was shot to death on Nov. 17 while picking up a cookie order at a local bakery he often visited.. Two men wearing masks were captured on surveillance footage. The U.S. Marshals Service believe that Justin Johnson was one of two people captured on the footage.
