Details Surrounding Dolph’s Death
As we previously covered, Dolph died after being shot in his hometown of Memphis. The rapper was at the store, Makeda’s Cookies, when the incident happened.
The establishment owner Maurice Hill told authorities that Dolph came in to buy cookies when a vehicle drove in front of the store and fired shots at him.

Hours before the shooting, photos showed Dolph posing in front of his camo Dodge Hellcat. The vehicle was later seen in a location blocked off with yellow tape.
Before his devastating passing, Dolph had seven studio albums to his name, all of which he had exclusive rights for.
The famed rapper proved to be an exception as he never signed to a record label but managed to achieve immense success.
For most of his career, he was involved in a heated feud with fellow rapper Yo Gotti. However, nothing has tied the “Rake It Up” artist to the shooting.
R.I.P Young Dolph. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones!
