On Thursday night, it was revealed that a public memorial for Young Dolph will take place, on December 16, at the FedEXForum, in Memphis. This comes after a private funeral was held, earlier this week. Now, Dolph’s hometown is about to honor him in another major way.
According to TMZ, The City of Memphis will be giving Dolph his own street, named after him. This will reportedly take place on December 15, at an intersection near the Memphis Depot Industrial Park. City councilman JB Smiley organized this, as he’s been in contact with Dolph’s family.
This street is also located in South Memphis, where Dolph grew up at in the Castalia Heights community. Dolph’s family added that Dolph’s street name will symbolize that the rapper was about hard work and perseverance.
“He sent the message that someone who went to the same schools as them, and walked the same streets that they do, was able to not only create a successful legacy for himself, but also prioritized family and community.”
It’s been over two weeks now, since Dolph was shot and killed at Makeda’s Cookies, in South Memphis. The two men who opened fire on him, are still at-large.
