Afternoon Vibes with Ms. Jessica

Weekdays 3:00 PM-7:00 PM

Ms. Jessica & Young Dolph at the 2017 BET Awards

Sad Sad Sad day in The Culture.  It has been confirmed that rapper Young Dolph was shot and killed in his hometown of Memphis, TN.

According to reports, Dolph was visiting a cookie store called “Makeda’s Cookies” when someone fired through the front window, hitting the rapper.  The owner of the cookie store said Dolph would always stop by to get his favorite cookies when he was in town.  No suspects are in custody at this time

I remember the 1st time I interviewed Young Dolph.  It was shortly after he dropped his album “Bulletproof” at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.  If you are familiar with the album, you know it has a strong connection to Charlotte, NC.  So much so, one of the tracks is titled “In Charlotte“.  I had a list of questions ready but was a little nervous about asking them.  Some artists don’t like to talk about certain things, especially the controversial topics.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Dolph answered all my questions and more.  It was such a fun interview.  After that, I saw Dolph a couple times in concerts and he always put on a show.  His presence will definitely be missed in the music world.

Young Dolph leaves behind a son, daughter, and thousands of fans.  He was just 36 years old.  RIP Young Dolph
