Hundreds mourn Dolla at funeral
Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral of slain rapper Dolla at the weekend in Atlanta, GA.

The service for the artist, whose real name is Roderick Anthony Burton Jr, took place on Saturday (May 23) at the Word of Faith Love Center in the city, and was attended by his cousin Scrapp DeLeon, who was with Burton when he was shot in Los Angeles early last week, reports

Burton, who was 21, was at the Beverly Center shopping mall when he was allegedly gunned down by Atlanta promoter Aubrey Berry. He was buried at Westview Cemetery in the Georgian city.

Berry was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday (May 18). He is being held on $5 million bail and has pleaded not guilty to murder and two assault charges.
