RIP Young Dolph


This sucks. Memphis Rapper Young Dolph, real name Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., was shot and killed in his hometown today.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Young Dolph, he was a very successful rapper who first found fame being featured on the O.T. Genasis classic “Cut It.” Dolph took that success and began a dominant 4 years as one of rap’s most distinct voices and styles.


Other Dolph facts:

  • Survived a gunshot wound sustained in 2017 (which was originally claimed to be done by Yo Gotti)
  • Was cousins to another rapper gone way too soon, Juice WRLD
  • His highest-charting album was 2020’s Rich Slave which topped at #4 on Billboard
