Key Glock is not dead

Due to Robison’s resemblance to Young Dolph protégé Key Glock, many fans thought the Memphis rapper was the victim of the shooting that occurred in Charlotte. The Russian Cream rapper did not respond to his death rumor but tweeted shortly after he began to trend over speculation that he was dead.

“Roses are red and this bankroll on me BLUE,” Glock tweeted seemingly in response to the rumor that he passed away.

There is no known connection between the late social media star and the Memphis rapper. Glock is the cousin of Young Dolph and the duo has released the popular mixtape Dum and Dummer last year. Glock followed up with Yellow Tape and Son of a Gun — both released in 2020.
