Edd’s MANtra: RIP Dolla

Another day, another rapper lost to violence.

The name Dolla might not ring a bell, but you club-goers out there might remember his minor hit last year with T-Pain, “Who The F*** Is That?” (later edited to “Who The Heck Is That?” for BET).

Dolla, whose real name was Roderick Anthony Burton II, was fatally shot yesterday afternoon in a California shopping center. He was 21. According to the Sun Sentinel:

According to his publicist, Sue Vannasing, she said Dolla was shot in the head around 3:10 p.m. while he and another rapper, DJ Shabbazz, waited in the Beverly Center mall area after shopping.

Details are sketchy, as usual, but police have detained a suspect.

Can’t say I was a Dolla fan, but it hurts me to hear about another young guy losing his life.
