For small moments in my day, I find myself rapping DG Yola’s “Ain’t Gon’ Let Up” as if it came out two days ago. It remains one of Atlanta’s pretty catchy singles that didn’t put its owner anywhere further than he should have been. Sadly, the years haven’t been kind to Yola, mostly because of his own demons and those demons may have finally gotten the better of him now.

Yola, real name Mario Talley was arrested and charged with felony murder among a litany of other charges for shooting a man in an Atlanta apartment complex. Per the AJC:

Mario Talley, 28, was arrested Friday and charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and attempted robbery, Atlanta police said. He’s alleged to have shot and killed Rodney Walker last Sunday night at the Daron Village Apartments on Harwell Road.

Walker was found dead by police in the rear of the apartment building. Police said he had been shot multiple times.

Another shooting victim, Isiah Knight is held in stable condition at Grady Hospital in Atlanta. He also said he was shot and robbed at the same apartment complex where the Walker murder took place and now both crimes have been pinned on Yola. He remains in Fulton County Jail.
