Blac Youngsta faced the wrath of Young Dolph fans after footage of his recent performance at Texas’ Aces of Dallas nightclub surfaced online. In a circulated clip, the 31-year-old could be seen rapping “Shake Sum,” his 2016 diss track aimed at Dolph.

On social media, fans of the Paper Route Empire MC criticized Blac Youngsta’s song selection and said the performance was in bad taste.

Blac Youngsta lame AF for performing ‘Shake Sum’ a month after Dolph’s death,” one person tweeted on Sunday (Dec. 19).

“Blac Youngsta dissing Dolph, but Dolph was the only one taking care of Memphis, and that’s why they really mad,” another added.

On Monday (Dec. 20), Blac Youngsta addressed the backlash on Instagram. In a caption re-posted by Hollywood Unlocked, the Memphis native wrote, “I’m the type of ni**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 bout me.”

The Code Red crafter didn’t apologize for performing the song, but said being famous means his actions are “put under this magnifying glass and every lil thing I do/ say receives negativity [whether] it’s… put out that way or not.”

After Dolph’s untimely death last month, false reports began to spread that the home of Blac Youngsta’s grandmother was being targeted. The threats turned out to be untrue, but in his Instagram post on Monday, Blac Youngsta said his grandmother is “damn near her death bed” and was in the hospital when the false reports surfaced.

“I took all the threats and hopes that she don’t make it from all type[s] of people [I don’t know],” he wrote.

“’Assume’ what you wanna,” he added, possibly referring to his new song and video “I’m Assuming” that dropped on Monday.
