Young Dolph has shot and killed in his hometown of Memphis. The rapper was 36.

Born Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., the rapper was shot outside of Makeda’s Butter Cookies. Staff told FOX13 that Dolph came in the store to buy cookies when a vehicle pulled up and opened fire, fatally striking the rapper around 1 pm, Wednesday, Nov. 17.

Dolph was just there a week ago showing love to the local business.

Fans hopped on Instagram Live and confirmed that it was Dolph’s vehicle that had been hit.

Young Dolph dropped his debut album King of Memphis in 2016. However, the Memphis native had been in the game for over ten years with notable mixtapes, Paper Route Campaign, High Class Street Music, East Atlanta Memphis and several others, collaborating with Gucci Mane and Peewee Longway.

In 2017, Dolph was shot and left in a critical but stable condition following an argument that occurred in Hollywood. That same year, over 100 shots were fired at Young Dolph‘s SUV in Charlotte, North Carolina during the CIAA sports tournament, where he was scheduled to perform. Dolph responded by dropping a mixtape titled, Bulletproof.

His most recent project, Dum and Dummer 2, with cousin and Paper Route Empire signee, Key Glock, dropped in March.

Our condolences go out to Young Dolph’s family and friends.

The two have both issued statements via Instagram Stories.

“I just feel like it’s so unfair, this situation,” said Dani while on Instagram Live. “This whole time I’ve been nothing but straight with this man and tried, nothing but genuine pure love for this man from the jump, three years ago… It’s just very unfortunate.”

DaBaby reports that DaniLeigh’s family has disowned her for having a baby with a Black man.

“I done dropped everything for my baby to have a good life…and for her to know her dad,” Dani added. “I will go figure it out like I always have since I’ve been young. Never depended on a man.”

Just a year ago, DaBaby’s baby mama, MeMe, called out DaniLeigh after Dani and DaBaby went public.

UPDATE: DaniLeigh has been charged with two counts of simple assault following the incident captured on Instagram Live. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) told news reporter Joe Bruno that DaBaby told CMPD that Dani assaulted him.
