On Monday May 18th, 2009 at approximately 3:15PM, Hip Hop lost one of its prominent talents in Dolla. Dolla, born Roderick Anthony Burton II was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Beverly Center Mall in Los Angeles, California.

The Untouchable DJ Drastic remembers Dolla, “I first met Dolla in Los Angeles around the time that his single, Who The ____ Is That? was impacting radio. I remember him as being humble and willing to support us as DJs in every way. He was polite and genuinely understood how vital relationships were within the business. Dolla had nothing but love for those who had love for him. He always embraced me whenever our paths crossed within the circuit. I was deeply saddened by the news of his demise. I would like to send my most sincere condolences to his personal and professional families. He will truly be missed by all that embraced him.

Official Statement From The Family of Roderick Anthony Burton II

“First and foremost we, the Burton family would like to thank everyone for all their kind thoughts and prayers during these trying times.

Most recently, the Burton family was made aware that there have been numerous false claims of information floating around the net and also reported in reputable media outlets. Part of this was due to someone who was not authorized to speak on the family’s behalf and who claimed to be the publicist of record decided to disseminate false information on her own and without the consent of the family to several media outlets.

Due to the circumstances of the situation no other information will be released at this time. We are grateful for your continued support in these trying times. We now ask everyone to allow us to mourn the loss of our beloved Roderick Anthony Burton II.

For the above reasons, we have authorized Mr. Dennis Byron, Dennis Byron Management to speak on behalf of the family while we cope with this unfortunate and painful loss.

Please reach him at (404) 396-5838 or e-mail: DByronPR@gmail.com”
