It’s a sad day in hip hop. Rapper Young Dolph was murdered in Memphis. He was killed in his own neighborhood.
When you grow up in a place and represent it to the fullest, you never expect to be killed in the very place they love and represent so much. Young Dolph first came on the scene in 2009 but was known nationally in 2016 for his debut album King of Memphis. After reports started to arise of Dolph being a possible gunshot victim, I started scrambling to find out the truth.
