Blac Youngsta sparks controversy with I’m Assuming video
In 2017, Blac Youngsta rose to fame, signing to CMG at the height of the Young Dolph beef. At the time of Youngsta’s signing, Yo Gotti was rumored to be behind Dolph’s 2017 shooting, in Charlotte. Because of what happened, Young Dolph released a single called “In Charlotte.” Upon signing, Youngsta took on an active role in the beef.
Yo Gotti would go onto have the biggest year of his career, as a rapper. Behind the scenes, he was handling his business, signing with Roc Nation for management. Meanwhile, Gotti signed a label deal with Interscope Records, for CMG. At the time, few people saw that Gotti was making the transition from being a rapper to being a label executive.
In 2021, Yo Gotti has stayed out of the spotlight, leaving it for his artists. Blac Youngsta, though, has kept quiet in 2021, too. Behind the scenes, Youngsta is building his own Heavy Camp label, which works in conjunction with CMG/Interscope. Recently, he began dropping new music for the first time this year, and then Young Dolph gets killed.
Nearly a month after Dolph died, Blac Youngsta dropped the “I’m Assuming” music video. In the video, he’s in a graveyard, and one tombstone reads “Thornton.” That’s Dolph’s last name, and it sparked a lot of controversy among fans.
