Earlier this week, Memphis rapper, Young Dolph, was shot and killed, in his hometown. This occurred while he was visiting Makeda’s Homemade Butter cookies, a popular business, on the south side of the city.
Dolph Was Shot At By Two Men Outside The Store
Dolph was in Makeda’s, reportedly purchasing cookies for his mother. Soon, two men in COVID-19 style masks arrived outside of the establishment, as they fired a pistol, along with an AK-47 Draco. Dolph was pronounced dead at the scene, while the two men fled in what is said to be a white Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Dolph’s Artist Speaks Out
Key Glock is a rapper who is also signed to Dolph’s Paper Route Empire record label. Glock has made a lot of noise as an artist in Memphis, and is also widely popular, on social media. Following the murder of Dolph, Glock quickly deleted all of his Instagram posts, and he also decided to deactivate his Twitter feed.
Fans have waited for a while to see if Glock will ever address the loss of his fallen friend, and now he has officially broken his silence. He took to his Instagram stories, to upload a black screen, with the caption “STOP asking me if I’m ok, knowing damn well I ain’t.”
Dolph And Glock Released Collab Projects Together
Dolph and Glock have reportedly been close friends for over a decade now, and have released plenty of music together. In 2020, they put out the sequel for their “Dum and Dummer” mixtape series. The two also went on tour together, to promote the sequel for it. With Dolph being such a big star, he was also able to get Glock to be the next hot rapper out of Memphis.
Dolph’s Murder Suspects Getaway Car Reportedly Found
On Saturday evening, TMZ reported that the Mercedes-Benz that was used as a getaway car, by Dolph’s killers, was reportedly found. The vehicle was said to have been found three miles from Makeda’s cookies, in a nearby south Memphis Orange Mound neighborhood, on the 1100 block of Bradley Street.
This Mercedes didn’t appear to be damaged at all, as it was simply abandoned. It’s also still unclear if the individual living at the home next to the car, was questioned by authorities.
Dolph’s Murderers Are Still At-Large
As of now, Memphis police still haven’t brought anyone into custody, or made any arrests. In surveillance stills revealed, the two men were seen to have on navy and black hoodies, with grey sweat pants. Their faces were difficult to point out, due to the masks that they wore.
The location of the shooting, Makeda’s Cookies, is also still temporarily closed. This is due to letting employees grieve, as Dolph was a frequent customer, of the business. Makeda’s has also set up a GoFundMe page, in order for the business to stay afloat, while they take this hiatus. The property is currently boarded up, as fans have set up the area as a memorial for Dolph, as well.
