According to reports, this is not the first time Young Dolph was attacked by armed men. Back in February, his car was reportedly shot over 100 times that led to the arrest of Blac Youngsta who turned himself in after a warrant of arrest was issued for the shooting.

The Memphis rapper surrendered with two other men responsible for the attack against the co-rapper who luckily survived the shooting. Young Dolph later explained that he has spent $300,000 to armor his SUV before the attack took place.

After the recent shooting incident, the "100 Shots" artist is now in stable condition and currently recovering from his injuries.
