(AllHipHop News) Blac Youngsta has been scheduled to stand trial on weapons charges stemming from a shooting that took place in uptown Charlotte in February 2017.
The wild shootout took place near the end of the CIAA college basketball tournament and targeted fellow Memphis rapper Young Dolph.
Blac Youngsta, born Sammie Benson, will be facing trial on February 6 in Mecklenburg County Criminal Superior Court on five counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied moving vehicle, and one count of conspiracy to commit discharging a gun into an occupied dwelling.
Prosecutors also revealed videos showing Blac Youngsta and his crew taunting and threatening Young Dolph while holding guns before the shootout.
The shootout has been blamed on a feud between Yo Gotti and Young Dolph, who were beefing hard in the weeks leading up to the shooting.
Yo Gotti's manager Howard "Keon" Wright was sentenced to 10 years for his role in the shootout during CIAA weekend.
Dolph, who proceeded to make a song called “100 Shots” detailing the experience of being fired at 100 times while inside a van, was targeted again in September of 2017, after he was blasted by men reportedly associated with Yo Gotti.
