Memphis rapper Young Dolph is getting his Instagram fingers working again. The Southern hip-hop artist has announced his Thinking Out Loud album and release date.

Dolph went to Instagram Thursday (October 12) with his first post since wiping his page clean and surviving a near-fatal shooting.

Recently, Dolph came forward with his first social media post since the September shooting.

Recently, 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.

Earlier the same week, a report surfaced about McClendon getting arrested in connection to Dolph’s shooting.

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.
