Hey, douchnozzles    

The Beverly Center IS NOT IN BEVERLY HILLS. So the troll calling himself "CityofBeverlyHillsEmployee" is full of crud and baiting everyone for attention. Guess what? He wins!

#44. Your clearly out of touch with the culture of his music, so why even bother passing judgemnet? He just died a few hours ago and people are like who cares as if his life wasn't taken away in such a senseless and violent way.....he is somebodies child that was loved and will be missed.

You should really pray that the same fate doesn't befall your own children one day, because senseless acts of violence can happen to anyone, rich and famous or working class and average. His mother is going to have to bury her ONLY SON... I care becasue it's sad. Someone being shot in the HEAD is sad. Karma is a beast and a lot of you need to be preparing for her bite. RIP DOLLA

I'm a really miss dude, he recorded in my studio (Fullclip Recording Studios in San Diego, Ca) last year with plans to return this summer for another feature... A man will fight with his mind and hands if necessary, but a coward will use a weapon to make up for being less of a man in the physical form... Please stop being cowards... You could see pictures of him on my myspace @: myspace.com/fullclipentertainment

CityofBeverlyHillsEmployee, what an ignorant and racist comment. Your coworkers are actually decent people and feel that you are morally wrong to target innocent people because of the color of their skin. You call the cops on people because they are black? How about if I call the cops on your ass for being an ignorant racist white f***? You need a taste of your own medicine. You are precisely what is wrong with society, not black people. For the record, I'm white, and you seriously just pissed me off.

Im sure his lifestyle was all a front to enhance his music career, just like Rick Ross, Ja Rule, Vanilla Ice. The wannabe Dolla probably tangled with the wrong individual and ended up getting shown how real the game is. Which is sad because the only people playing are ignorant idiots with guns.

STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

CityofBEvHills, listen, where you are, that maybe what you think you see, but I go to school with at least 95% black people and there is NO crime. I mean NO crime. Maybe if you have rappers in "the game" that is what happens, but here in Atlanta, most of the black people that are trying to do good for themselves do not cause crimes. Anyone in the hood, black or white or mexican that feels hopeless will cause a crime, or any rapper that is in that game will shoot people. I don't know why a guy in Beverly Hills would kill someone though, I have a feeling the guy that shot Dolla was not short of money, not that you kill people for money, just that people that are raised in poverty end up doing that sometimes. Some people do kill people when owed money of course, I feel that is horrible though.
