Yo Gotti Speaks On MLS Ownership

It's a shocking moment for Gotti and his family, especially given how well things had been going with for the rapper. Last year, he gave a glowing interview about his ownership of the MLS' DC United. “It was a few years ago when I joined the club as an owner, part of the ownership club. I think diversifying growth as an entrepreneur, I mean, whoever thought we would own part of a professional sports team? I try to show to the young guys in my city by action, what we can do and what we can become if we stay determined and disciplined and on top of what we’re trying to do as young hustlers and entrepreneurs,” Gotti told Ebro Darden of Apple Music. He also teamed up with the First Lady to promote the 2023 All-Star Game.

However, 2023 was a disappointing season for the DC team. They finished 23rd in the overall MLS standings. United have not finished higher than 16th since 2019, when they finished 10th. It also marked the first full season of England soccer legend Wayne Rooney as head coach. However, Rooney left after the season for an unsuccessful coaching stint with English club Birmingham City.
