Yo Gotti is shutting down rumors that he dropped Blac Youngsta from his Collective Music Group (CMG) record label.

On Tuesday (Dec. 28), the “Rake It Up” emcee took to Twitter to address the speculation. “I’m seeing too much rap [cap] on these blogs,” he wrote, followed by, “Fake News!!” He then tweeted, “Lil bro A BOSS. He can’t be dropped #CMG #HeavyCamp.” The Memphis rapper ended his series of tweets by telling people to keep his name out of all the rumors.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Blac Youngsta was cut from the label after he released the visuals to his track “I’m Assuming.” In the music video, he walked around a cemetery and showed a gravestone with the name Thornton, Dolph’s last name, on it. A few days prior, Blac Youngsta performed “Shake Sum,” his 2016 diss track aimed at Dolph, to a large crowd in a Texas nightclub.

After receiving heavy criticism about the video and song choice, the “Booty” emcee took to Instagram to address the backlash. “I’m the type of nigga 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,” he captioned a post.

Blac Youngsta didn’t apologize for performing the diss song, but he said that his actions were “put under this magnifying glass” and that “every lil thing I do/say receives negativity [whether] it’s… put out that way or not” because he is famous.

The CMG rapper also addressed news about his grandmother’s house being shot at as retaliation for Dolph’s killing, writing that his grandma was in the hospital and “damn near [on] her death bed” when the false reports surfaced.
