Dolla — Rappers Who Correctly Predicted Their Own Deaths
Lyrics: “You see the rain on my window pane / Waking up in cold sweats having dreams of going out with a bang / My poppa died by the gun, I’ll die by the gun / And if I ever have a son he’ll probably die by the same,” raps Dolla on ‘Georgia Nights.’
Dolla, born Roderick Anthony Burton II, was a promising act out of Decatur, Ga., who unfortunately never got to live to see his first album released. The lyrics from ’Georgia Nights’ stand out because they were tragically autobiographical.
The story is that Atlanta event promoter Aubrey Berry was assaulted by Dolla and his affiliates — who were part of the Mansfield Crips — in an Atlanta nightclub. Later that month, they taunted Berry at a PF Changs restaurant in Los Angeles before following him to his car. Berry then shot Dolla four times with a 9mm in self-defense, killing him. He was 21 when he died.
