The "Preach" rapper suffered multiple gunshot wounds to one of his arms and buttocks, but his injuries appear to be non-life threatening, according to the celebrity news website.
Los Angeles police confirmed that 43-year-old Corey McClendon was booked Wednesday in connection with the shooting. He was released from jail Thursday.
Back in February, Young Dolph was riding to his concert when more than 100 rounds were fired into his vehicle. No one was injured in the incident.
Fellow Memphis rapper, Blac Youngsta, was charged for his involvement in the February 26 shooting.
