Soulja Boy have temporarily been removed from the Millennium Tour following the death of Young Dolph, who was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon. The touring company G-Squared Events made the announcement that Soulja Boy will not perform during the tour stops in St. Louis, Missouri (Friday, Nov. 19) and Memphis (Sunday, Nov. 21).
A representative from G-Squared Events said the move was made to preserve the safety of the artists on tour and patrons, saying: “The safety and welfare of our patrons are the first and foremost priority. “We pride ourselves on bringing high-quality concert experiences to our patrons. In times like this, we will stop at nothing to ensure that everyone that participates in these experiences is healthy, safe, and quite frankly having a good time.”
A week ago Soulja and Dolph exchanged a few words on Instagram on Nov. 10, 2021, when Dolph showed his current show rate for his millions of followers, saying: “How da f— I’m a independent artist and gettin 100rax plus for a show?” “How da f— @keyglock got more cars & ice than you & your ceo? DJ Akademiks then re-posted Dolph comments, and Soulja Boy commented stating that Dolph is lying about his earning saying, “That’s big cap. “They signed to @empire I’m really 100% Independent no cap.
Soulja went on IG and fired off insults towards Dolph, even mocking the time Dolph’s car was shot over 100 times in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the time Dolph was shot in Los Angeles a few months later.
