He posted the declaration on his Instagram story, saying, “I’m not supporting no more diss/gang music! If ya dissing each other in the songs, don’t even send it to me! I don’t care if the artist sends it, the label sends it, your big Homie sends it! I will not support or play anymore Diss/Gang records on the radio! We r losing too many young men and women to the streets!”

“If you make drill music, there are a lot of drill songs without dissing your opps or smoking your opps! Step up your pen game and creativity. No reason why every week someone is getting locked up or killed. I can’t change the world, but I can stop supporting the nonsense. I admit I’m a fan of the drill records and supported from the beginning. But it’s only getting worse. SMH,” he concluded.

According to the Daily News, Tdott’s grandmother is bereaved.

She said told the newspaper that she heard four shots when the shooting occurred. She also asked not to be identified by name.
