A man suspected of killing Memphis legend Young Dolph was dropped by a lawyer for Dolph’s enemies, Yo Gotti and Blac Youngsta.

Rumors abounded that Justin Johnson (left) was represented by Art Horne (right), longtime lawyer for Yo Gotti and Blac Youngsta.

The young Dolph, with real name Adolph Thornton, was shot down in a cake shop in Memphis on November 17th.

When Fox13 News reached out to Johnson’s attorney, Horne, for a comment he said he would speak after his client showed up.

Johnson was arrested Wednesday by U.S. marshals in Indiana.

On Thursday, Horne confirmed he no longer represented Johnson.

Authorities are investigating what connection Blac Youngsta (left) and Yo Gotti (right) had to the alleged killers.

Horne was successful in getting charges dropped against Blac Youngsta when he was arrested for shooting Dolph’s car back in 2017.

Horne posted a statement via Instagram saying:

“After reading a few recent articles, seeing half a dozen blogs and skimming through the comments section, I have learned a sobering fact: Misinformation spreads and sells far faster than the truth.”

Johnson, an aspiring rapper named Straight Drop, allegedly killed Dolph for refusing to sign him to a record deal.
