According to his social media page, Johnson appears to be a local rapper who goes by the name StraightDrop. His page is flooded with pics of himself flaunting clothes, money and expensive cars.
Law enforcement says Johnson is on the TBI Most Wanted list, has ties to organized crime and should be considered armed and dangerous … and there’s a combined reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to his capture.
As we reported … Young Dolph was gunned down in November while he was inside a cookie shop in Memphis, and 2 masked gunmen were caught on surveillance footage before fleeing in a getaway car.
The feds allege Johnson shot Young Dolph to death … and they say he also has an outstanding warrant for violating his federal supervised release from a separate weapons offense.
There was a second person in the surveillance video, but authorities did not mention or name him.
