With collaborations with artists like Lil Yachty, T-Pain, and Moneybagg Yo, Memphis rapper Blac Youngsta has been showing off his music talent for over a decade.

That being said, there have been a few things that have happened in his life in recent years that might make fans think he's taking a step back from the spotlight.

From nearly the very beginning of his music career, Blac Youngsta has been signed to rapper Yo Gotti's record label CMG. But, in 2021, there were rumors going around that Youngsta was dropped.

Despite all of the traction from the rumors, they don't appear to be true. In fact, Blac Youngsta was featured on CMG's released album Gangsta Art in 2022. The album featured major rap artists, from Coi Leray to Glorilla. Safe to say, he's still at the label.

Aside from his music, Blac Youngsta is known for getting into arguments with fellow rappers. Especially, the late Young Dolph. The two were at odds for a long time. And Blac has the alleged criminal history to prove it.

In 2017, years before Young Dolph ultimately passed away, Blac Youngsta was charged with allegedly firing over 100 gunshot rounds into his vehicle. The case was eventually dropped.

After Young Dolph died, their feud did not stop. Blac Youngsta released a music video for his song "I'm Assuming" where he was supposedly standing right next to Dolph's grave. This rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, but the popular rapper did not seem to be fazed by the criticism.
