Dolla's Mother In Birthday Tribute

The mother of slain rapper DOLLA has paid tribute to her late son on what would have been his 25th birthday - calling the fallen hip-hop star the "light" of her life.
The rap star, real name Roderick Anthony Burton II, was shot in the head outside the Beverly Center mall in Los Angeles earlier this year (18May09). He died in hospital later the same day.
Burton, who would have turned 25 last Sunday (22Nov09), was on his way home to visit his mother, Dawnee Robinson, when he was gunned down.
And Robinson admits the pain of her son's premature death will never leave her.
She tells Allhiphop.com, "Just a few hours before the incident, I spoke to my son and he was on his way home. I was cooking his dinner.
"He's always been inquisitive and ambitious and wanted to know everything about everything. Asked a lot of questions and he's always been, you know just a light. Whatever caused this person to murder my son, I'm still in total disbelief and can't understand what would provoke anyone to do something like (this)."
Aubrey Berry, 23, from Atlanta, Georgia has pleaded not guilty to the hip-hop star's murder and remains in custody.
And Robinson hopes justice will be done, adding, "All I know is that is not OK to go around shooting and killing people. That's not what I believe in. That's not what my son believed in and I feel that anyone who is so bold to take another life, for no apparent reason, I feel that they should be prosecuted with full extent of the law and that's how I feel."
