Young Dolph Honored & Given His Own Street Named After Him In Memphis

Memphis City Councilman J.B. Smiley announced that the late rapper Young Dolph will be honored by renaming a street after him.

Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., the rapper’s real name, was gunned down somewhere within Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies on Airways Boulevard.

The initiative is being prompted by city councilman JB Smiley, who has stated that he wanted to wait until he received approval from Dolph’s family before honoring him with the sign.

Maurice Hill, the cookie shop’s owner, told FOX13 that Young Dolph went into the store to purchase cookies when he was gunned down.

Memphis police released images of two suspects wanted in the rapper’s death, as well as the white Mercedes they were driving at the time of the crime.

Locals absolutely loved Dolph, who was known for helping the community.
