The incident took place at Livingstone College on Saturday night after an altercation broke out among the crowd.
Asian Doll has been known to find herself in the middle of controversy throughout her career, however, the latest incident tied to the rap diva’s name has little to do with her, and a lot to do with concert attendees who pulled off a senseless act of gun violence on Saturday (October 15) night.
A report from WSOC-TV reveals that the Dallas native – born Misharron Allen – was commissioned to perform a homecoming concert at North Carolina’s Livingstone College this past weekend when a fight between two patrons broke out in the audience.
It’s been noted that neither of those involved with the violent feud is affiliated with the school, and one of them is confirmed to have fired at least one shot.
Local authorities received a call from campus around 11 PM, and upon arrival, they discovered that two students had been shot, while numerous others were wounded while fleeing the sudden gunfire.
One of the victims, a male, was flown to a hospital in Charlotte, located approximately 35 miles southwest of Salisbury, where he is said to have been stabilized. Another victim – this one female – was grazed by a bullet and received treatment at a local hospital before she was released.
At this time, the investigation remains in its early stages and no official arrests have been made. Asian Doll herself has also not shared a statement regarding the shooting that took place at her concert.
Livingstone College President Dr. Anthony J. Davis has spoken out, though, saying, “I’m saddened that after a week of homecoming activities without incident, our students, alumni, their families, and friends had to witness this senseless act of gun violence.”
How did Asian Doll become famous?
Misharron Jermeisha Allen, better known as Asian Doll, Asian Da Brat, or simply Asian, is an American rapper. A Dallas native, she was the first female artist signed to Gucci Mane‘s 1017 Eskimo Records.
Allen was born on December 5, 1996, to LaKeithia Lewis and Michael Allen, and was the second daughter of four children. Raised in the south side of Dallas in an area known as Park Row, Allen’s early life was dealt with instability; from poverty and her father being in and out of prison. Allen had her first run-in with the law when she was 12 years old. Allen attended Skyline High School and dropped out in the 12th grade.
Her music career began with the release of Da Rise of Barbie Doll Gang Empire on December 16, 2015, and media-influenced social “beefs” have contributed to greater attention. Other projects include Drippin in Glo (2016), Project Princess Vol. 1 (2016), OuttaSpace (2017), Kill Bill, Vol. 1 (2017) Doll SZN, So Icy Princess (2018) her eighth mixtape release UNFUCCWITABLE (May 3, 2019). She released Doll SZN Reloaded on April 8, 2020. Allen is a company owner.
In an attempt to distance herself from a group of female rappers using the stage name Doll, Allen changed her name to Asian Da Brat in 2019. The name Asian Da Brat was supposedly a reference to the veteran female rapper from Chicago, Da Brat, whose debut studio album Funkdafied was the first platinum-certified record by a female rapper. In an April 2019 interview on Hot97, Allen stated that Da Brat was a reference to the brand of girls’ toys known as Bratz Dolls.
She supported Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
