Rapper Young Dolph reportedly shot and killed in Memphis
Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., better known as rapper Young Dolph, was reportedly shot and killed in his native Memphis, Tenn., on Wednesday.
Local station FOX13 reported that his death was confirmed by three independent law enforcement sources.
The 36-year-old rapper allegedly walked into the shop Makeda’s Butter Cookies to buy cookies when an unidentified person drove up and shot him, the store’s owner, Maurice Hill, recounted to the station, based on employees’ accounts of the incident.
Young Dolph was well known in his city, for which he named his 2016 debut studio album, “King of Memphis.” The album reached No. 49 on the Billboard 200 chart, a record he beat in 2020 with his seventh album, “Rich Slave,” which reached No. 4. Source: NewYorkPost
