Roderick Anthony Burton II (November 25, 1987 – May 18, 2009) was an American rapper, better known by his stage name Dolla. He had a hit single with "Who The Fuck is That" featuring T-Pain and Taye Dzim. A remix was made featuring Akon and T-Pain. Dolla was shot in the back three times while trying to run away from gunshots fired by Aubrey Lewis Berry. The two had an argument and seconds later, Aubrey shot Dolla in the parking lot of a PF Chang's, which is an American restaurant. Aubrey fled and Dolla was taken to a hospital where he later died. On May 22, 2010, charges were dropped against Aubrey Berry for the death of Dolla, as he was claiming self-defense. Evidence pointed out that Berry felt threatened by Burton due to a previous altercation in Atlanta a week before to the shooting. Burton's funeral was held in Atlanta's east point neighborhood on May 23, 2009. He was buried in Westview Cemetery in Atlanta.
