“Jeremiah was a great person,” friend Frank Gottie said. “He was so creative. He was so on point. He was helpful, he would help anybody.”

Taylor kept up the rapper’s memorial at Makeda’s Cookies by keeping posters in check – one of which he made himself.

23-year-old Justin Johnson and 32-year-old Cornelius Smith have been charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, employment of a firearm and theft of property over $10,000 in relation to Dolph’s murder. Additionally, Shundale Barnett was also arrested alongside Johnson and charged with being an accessory but was released and is missing.
