Memphis rapper Young Dolph has come through with the update fans have waited for. The hip-hop artist is speaking after surviving a near-death shooting earlier in the week.
Early Sunday, Dolph went to Twitter with his first social media post since the attack and also deleted all of his Instagram pics.

A few days ago, cops released suspect Corey McClendon after getting dragged into custody for a possible role in the shooting.
Greg Risling, a spokesman for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, said Friday that Corey McClendon, 43, who was booked early Wednesday on an attempted murder charge by Los Angeles police, was released early Friday, after prosecutors asked police for “further investigation.” McClendon, a friend of chart-topping rapper (and Young Dolph rival) Yo Gotti, had been held for 48 hours on $1 million bond as a suspect in the daylight shooting of Young Dolph, 32, on Tuesday in front of a prominent Hollywood hotel.

Corey McClendon, 43, was arrested near Highland Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard shortly after the Tuesday afternoon attack and has been booked on suspicion of attempted murder, according to Det. Megan Aguilar, an LAPD spokeswoman. It was not clear whether McClendon fired the gun or was simply involved in the brawl that preceded the shooting near one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations, Aguilar said.

This week, Hollywood actor O’Shea Jackson and rapper Rick Ross sent words of encouragement to Dolph following the near-death event.
