Jay Rock Speaks On Dolla’s Death, “This Ish Gotta Stop”

With news that Atlanta rapper and Akon associate Dolla was murdered yesterday in a Los Angeles Mall, fellow young MC Jay Rock has offered his condolences on a short internet video.

Rock, who says he was close with the Konvict artist, seems visibly upset in the clip posted online today. “Right now I had just got some bad news, I had just found out about it,” he said. “Real good nigga, friend of mine. Rest in peace to my nigga Young Dolla, that’s some sad shit. Shit’s crazy how that shit went down . All my prayers go out to his family. It’s like what the fuck is going on…this shit’s gotta stop.” [Watch Below]

According to Fox News a Georgia man by the name of Aubrey Lois Berry was arrested in the shooting and is currently being held on $1 million bail. He was obtained at the Los Angeles International Airport last night after the incident with a gun in his possession.

Dolla, 21, was shot dead yesterday afternoon outside the Beverly Center. He was in L.A. recording his debut, Another Day, Another Dolla. As of press time a possible motivation for the murder is not clear. – Elan Mancini

    • nc-mane

      This is why hip hop aint alive. She aint dead but it’s surely in acoma. Rest in peace to Dollar. From what i heard he couldve really made some noise in the industry. The fact that this may have been over a female makes it worst!! Bitch niggas getting strong and winning the war!! Life comes and goes; live like it counts….

    • ko

      You rap about g shit, you live in the hood, you look like a thug, you probably carry a gun, and you hang around criminals, you’re asking for some bullshit to happen to you. Don’t cry over spilled milk.

      • respect

        yo u are ignorant to say anything like that after a death of a human being …dont matter what he was involed in but for the record he was a real nigga u shuldnt ever say somethin like dat what happens if it was your 21 year old brother or who ever waiting on a carn get shoot for nothin a argument its time to agree to disagree n not eleminate someone becaus eu dont agree with them

      • shone jones

        Show some respect!

        • Lexi K

          I agree with jb this all rappers talk about in they music but soon as a rapper get shot they wanna say that dat was sum bullshit and need to stop all the violence…but anyway r.i.p Dolla

      • http://xxlmag jb

      • Justice4All

        I agree/ You reap what you sow. Sad loss of life, but we have to be careful what we speak, usually it comes to fruition.

    • ernest

      rappers write about the streets and promote an hardcore image but that crap sells. like when jadakiss said he keeps funeral homes open that dont mean hes out killing niggaz on the regular. we gotta stop being so naive and understand that words are words i mean would u buy a boring album from a supposed artist slash gangsta i doubt it. its all about album sales period.

  • ChiTown

    Damn this is crazy. R.I.P. to the nigga Dolla. This gotta stop man too many lives full of promise bein lost to some bullshit

  • PARIS PERSHUN

    THIS SOME FUCKED UP SHIT…. THEN THEY SAY IT MIGHT BE OVER A FUCKIN BITCH!!!! THEY BEEN TALKIN BOUT THAT SHIT ALL DAY DOWN HERE (DALLAS) ON THE RADIO

  • Beast McCoy

    A very tragic ending for any young man. It really makes you want to ask why so many young men are so willing to kill one another and give their own life away to the Penal System. I heard a preacher today talking about how so many young people are living in the now and really don’t see any prosperity in their future. A man without a dream really isn’t a man meaning if you don’t have any goals or anything or anyone to live for then why are you alive. It’s really sad when we as a community can’t realistic inspire are lost youth. I really do believe we throw people away too easily in society when we need to sometimes put more into saving are wayward souls. When I read this story yesterday on yahoo I was shocked to hear he was shot in broad daylight in front of a mall. I mean that is almost like saying hey I really don’t care about the fact that there are cameras and a dozen eyewitnesses and it’s at 3pm in broad daylight so the chances of mistaken idenity are nil… I really got get this cat. I can’t understand the thought process that says “Hey, his life is worth my freedom!”. Dolla, Vaya Con Dios! It seems you will join so many other silenced up and coming stars like Big L, Mausberg and tragically so many others.

    Cold shit is that they got dude who shot him @ LAX. That man was on his way back home to be with his family & shit. Fuck him. I never heard of Dolla until yesterday, but that shit is bogus.

    Cats are going to have to deal with these things on the upper/lower eschalon. You can run from the cops, can’t hide from eternity. Life ain’t no movie, man. Karma is a bitch, & God is her father.

    RIP Dolla.

PEACE to everybody!!! Be happy with the breathe you take, it may be your last one.

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN

    On one of his songs, “Rainy Nights,” Burton seemed to foreshadow his own death: “Papa died at 25 so he must have been great, they say the good die young, I guess I’m on my way.”

      “Grow up!”

      You dumb fuck, everybody on this thread is being grown up, sharing condolences & having fellowship on how bugged out this nonsense is. Then you come hear with your “reaper”s & “happen to other rappers”s. Man, I’ve insulted you to the point where you’ve went so far as to change your name (didn’t work, mind you. Stupidity is visible to outerspace).

      Yet, you continue to show your ass @ every opportunity. Must I continue, you half-a-brained failure festival? Show this man some respect. Or better yet, since your so convinced that it will happen to another rapper, be our sacrificial lamb. Start rapping.

      Stop commenting here. I promise you’ll be humiliated time & time again & I won’t even have to type another comment in your direction.

      Kill yourself. Next headline I read should say “diet tony finds, then promptly chokes to death on missing keyboard keys.”. Wrap your head in a plastic shopping bag and die slow. Sub-human piece of shit.

      @QueerGanster

      I bet your just some 12 year old kid, getting his ass whopped everyday by the big kids at the schoolyard, so you go on the internet and act all tough. STFU already ya fag.

      A man has lost his life, and while I was never a fan of his music I would never wish death upon him. Thats for people who have an IQ of beneath 70 and judging from your comments, you’re probably the first person to have a negative IQ.

      My prayers go out to the family. God will make a way.

      RIP Dolla.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    His family will see him in the resurection.

  • mizeryluvkompany

    never was a big fan of his music, but my heart goes out 2 his friends and fam, damn man u were 2 young, and had a whole life ahead of u, till sum hater came along, may u rest in peace homie!!

  • romil

    Wow that’s crazy broad day light/the mall. wth..this was some real personal ish, and they knew he was in LA doing his album. Chased him from GA, and tried to come back home.

    Yall cats gotta get ya souls saved, its crazy out here. and everybody always sayin r.i.p. but if you know the bible then u know street cats aint going to heaven when they get killed on the spot b4 asking 4 4giveness.

    • LB

      I understand what ya tryin to say bruh, but you got it wrong man. U can’t say “street cats” in general like that. You don’t know what this man’s last seconds was like. And a street cat needin forgiveness is just the same as a lazy-ass computer geek needin forgiveness man. We all fall short.

      • romil

        you right we all fall short! But my point is in the hood we know what we doing is wrong. like tha freeway track “what we do” Im jus talkin about the mentality of the streets,hood etc. and trust me I know gangsters pray! But alot of us think we got time to patch it up with god for all that wrong we did in the last seconds of life.?? If you been close 2 death b4 then u know u aint really thinking about that at the moment u so shocked at what is happening to u. blinking of an eye! this is tragic!!

    Never really listened to his music, but it’s a loss none the less. They say his dad commited suicide when Dolla was 5, so he was runnin’ the streets by age 10. This passin’ shit on from generation to generation is sad, it’s like a never ending cycle.

    WOW…everybody up here that’s talking mad lip behind a computer screen need to get a life. To that person that said rappers get behind the mic and tell all of them lies. Tell me this can you rap? Do you know and seen everything the next man or woman has seen or been through? No so you just need to sit back and keep that hot ass air in your mouth. Roderick didn’t deserve that he had already been through so much. His twin did at birth, father killed himself, mom survived cancer & sister got locked up. Of course everybody acts tough but when you put guns in the mix it aint a game anymore. What happen to the days when we could just meet up on the block fight it out and shake at the end and let the drama fade out? These generations today aint about living they about living up to a trend so I guess is going to jail or being a coward to be as low to kill somebody. And it wasn’t self defense he just tryna sve his own ass but when you play hard and dirty you die harder then you ever played. And no it wasnt over a girl Dolla had a girlfriend that actually live in L.A so it wasn’t over no broad that this other dude could’ve been messing with. Whether it’s day light or night time idiots always show out for no reason they could’ve solved that problem. It’s too late now we just mourned the death of another african american that has now been put on the list of dying from gunfire. Just like he predicted his own death through one main song “PAPA DIED AT 25 SO HE MUST’VE BEEN GREAT, THEY SAY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG, I MUST BE ON MY WAY -Georgia Nights. Well no more stress now baby boy the dead sleeps peacefully while haters still talk about the life you had but they want it so that’s why they hate.

    HALF OF YALL NEED TO LOOK UP THE WORD “RESPECT” CAUSE OBVIOUSLY NO ONE HAS TAUGHT YOU EXACTLY WHAT THE WORD MEAN. ITS ALOT OF MALES AND SOME FEMALES THAT SELL DRUGS HALF THE TIME NO CAUSE THEY WANT TO BUT BECAUSE ITS A EASY WAY TO GET MONEY FOR BIGGER ISSUES. BUT WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE WHEN YOU AINT NOBODY BUT A HUMAN YOURSELF. AND YEAH PEOPLE GET SHOOT AT AND WRITE ABOUT IT OR COURAGE KIDS TO STOP THE VIOLENCE. BUT EVERYBODY IS FORGETTING THAT THESE ARE THE LAST DAYS AND THATS ALL YOUR GONNA SEE AND THE WORST IS YET TO COME. AND I MEANT THAT HIS TWIN DIED AT BIRTH ON MY FIRST MESSAGE. EVERYBODY HAS A DREAM AND DONT EVEN TRY TO GO FOR IT BUT HE DID AND NOW WE CANT SEE HIM ENJOY IT FOR HIMSELF. HE WAS A COOL DOWN TO EARTH TYPE OF GUY THAT TALK ABOUT THINGS THAT EVERYBODY ELSE TALK ABOUT.

    BUT YOU GOTTA REALIZE HE HAD HATERS JUST LIKE YOU AND I HAVE HATERS NOW. ITS A EVERYDAY BATTLE TO KEEP THE HEART PUMPING AND GET OUT OF BED JUST TO SEE THAT YOU RIGHT BACK WHERE YOU DIDNT WANT TO BE. WHEN YOU GROW UP IN THE HOOD WHAT ELSE IS THERE FOR YOU TO TALK ABOUT. CANT TALK ABOUT HEAVEN IF YOU NEVER SEEN IT ALL YOU CAN DO IS DREAM OF HOW IT’LL BE. CANT TALK ABOUT HELL IF YOU NEVER TOUCHED IT BUT JUST KNOW YOU DONT WANNA BE IN IT. I MISS HIM EVERYDAY AND SOMETIMES WISH THAT IT WAS A DREAM SO I COULD WAKE UP. BUT ITS BACK TO REALITY LIVING IS THE FRIEND OF DEATH AND DEATH IS JUST A LONG TIME TO SLEEP.

    THIS COULDVE BEEN AVOIDED AND YOU CAN TELL HE DID IT ON PURPOSE IT WAS IN BROAD DAYLIGHT. WHY FOLLOW SOMEONE TO KEEP THE BEEF GOING AND SHOOT THEM AND GET IN COURT AND CLAIM SELF DEFENSE. ITS CRAZY THIS WAS A COWARD MOVE AND MALES THINK THEY BECAME A MAN WHEN THEY KILL ANOTHER THATS UNARMED. AND TO YALL SAYING HE WAS A THUG AND ALL THAT OTHER NEGATIVE STUFF CUT THE SPEECH CAUSE YOUR WRONG. HE HAD A BEAUTIFUL MIND VERY TALENTED AND SWEET. JUST EXPERIENCED THINGS THAT WE NEVER WANT TO BE CAUGHT UP IN.
