Rapper, “Dolla” Killed in Beverly Center

18 05 2009


The Los Angeles Times reports that Atlanta-based rapper Dolla (né Anthony Burton II) was shot and killed outside of Los Angeles’ Beverly Center shopping mall just after 3 p.m. PDT on Monday. Though the Los Angeles Police Dept. would not confirm the identity of the victim, the Times reports that Dolla’s publicist, Sue Vannasing, confirmed to the newspaper that her client was shot outside the mall, while waiting with fellow rapper D.J. Shabbazz. Dolla is believed to be in his early twenties.

The shooting reportedly occurred during a group melee, possibly also involving a knife. Police have detained a person of interest, whom the LAPD would not name and said had not yet been arrested. Dolla is perhaps best known for the single “Feelin’ Myself,” which was featured in the 2006 dance film Step Up.
