Yo Gotti speaks about his supposed nemesis and more.
Yo Gotti is looking to finish off an already-strong 2017 on a high note.
His collaboration with Nicki Minaj, "Rake It Up," was certified platinum not long ago, giving him one of the biggest songs of the year in hearts of many hip-hop music consumers. In addition to that, he's about to drop another full-length project titled I Still Am, which has already been teased with the single "Juice." With such a busy schedule, it's amazing that he has time much else, let alone a long-form interview with the folks over at The Breakfast Club. Nevertheless, the rapper sat down with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee to talk about a variety of topics, not the least of which was his supposed beef with Young Dolph.
Their rift has been a long-standing one, which be break down in detail here. In short, Gotti tried to sign Dolph to his CMG imprint, which the youngster declined, stating that he wanted to forge his own path in the hip-hop firmament instead of solely latching on to Gotti's reputation. Unsurprisingly, this never sat well with the Memphis legend and has created a sideshow to both rappers' lives that, as far as the general public is concerned, is far from over. Gotti, as it turns out, doesn't feel the same way.
"I don't got no issue," Gotti told Charlamagne Tha God, after the host asked him if his beef with Dolph had gone too far. "It's probably the second or third time I've been up in here and said the same thing." While that may be true, his short-lived connection with the Young Dolph shooting in Los Angeles earlier this summer isn't easing everybody's tensions with the situation. He went even further, following another question from Yee, to suggest that some artist can use tabloid publicity like this boost sales. Yo Gotti insists that his (allegedly) ongoing feud with Dolph hasn't impacted his money making ability as a performer.
Later on in the interview, Gotti spoke about working with Nicki Minaj and the hit-making formula that went into "Rake It Up," as well as his charitable work in Memphis, which he prefers to keep on the down-low. Watch the whole interview via the video above.
