It's a sad day in Hip Hop as Memphis, Tennessee rapper Young Dolph was killed today in Memphis. Not only is it sad because we have another young businessman and artist who has now been killed. But it was in his hometown where he loved the people and showed support for those around him.

He was also very well known to assist and help other artists including up-and-coming rapper Key Glock. There are currently no leads, but the news was broken a couple of minutes ago. According to Vlad TV, Dolph was killed at Makeda's Cookies in Memphis which ironically he was just there a few days ago talking about the cookies there.

A video that has been floating around seems to confirm from a fan that Young Dolph was indeed killed at the location as his personal vehicle was spotted outside the location.


Young Dolph leaves behind kids, family, and friends who loved and supported him and his career. There was an attempt on his life twice in 2017 with a shooting in California and Carolina. However, lately, he has been under the radar and producing music and giving back to his community. Our condolences go out to his family and to those who loved him including his fans around  the world
