Young Dolph’s demise has the entire industry grieving. The highly talented and applauded rapper’s untimely passing weighs hard on Key Glock, who was often seen together with the rapper in key events. Dolph’s longtime partner Mia Jaye was an advocate of the “Black men deserve to grow old” movement.
Dolph was at Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies, a local bakery that he loved when he was gunned down. The pictures of his alleged shooters have also been relentlessly circulating on social media. One of the men in the pictures carries a handgun while the other was shown firing a semi-automatic machine gun.
The rapper’s camouflage Corvette was found in the parking lot of the Airways Boulevard shop. The owner of the shop Maurice Hill revealed that the rapper was in the shop to get some cookies when Dolph was shot by assailants. The rapper, however, was on his way to a Thanksgiving Charity event.
Dolph’s lawyer Scott Hall gave the fact to TMZ about Dolph heading for a charity event. It was confirmed by Joey Sulipeck from FOX13 Memphis in a tweet that the rapper was indeed back home for the event. Pastor Rodney Herron gave his account to FOX13, saying:
He had a turkey giveaway, a basket giveaway. He was giving out 200 turkeys from 3 to 5 p.m. He has a big heart. Even when he came right before Easter this year, he stayed with us the whole day. He took pictures with the kids and ate candy with the kids. This Friday was a big event for us, and a big event for the people in the community as well.
Dolph, real name Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., was on his way to pass turkey to the families in need. The rapper had simply stopped at a cookies shop when the highly-puzzling shootout took place. While the rapper stayed in Atlanta most of the time, he was back at his home in order to deliver turkeys for giving back to his old neighborhood.
