Young Dolph would’ve been 37 today (July 27), and while his physical presence is no longer with us, his music lives on.
Case in point, the Memphis rapper’s team released a new posthumous song titled “Hall of Fame.” The single has Dolph discussing everything he accomplished while alive, which elevated him to legendary status. According to a press release, the track is his “first posthumous single.”
Produced by Bandplay, “Hall of Fame” also has Dolph rapping about being willing to pay any amount for a Jay-Z verse and working hard to support his family.
Additionally, Dolph’s fiancée Mia Jaye also shared a heartfelt open letter, speaking to how much she and their children miss him.
“I love you, even after the end of time, and I thank you for allowing me to experience a genuine soul tie for as long as we did,” she wrote, in-part. “Happy heavenly birthday my love, Mia.”
Young Dolph was shot and killed in Memphis on November 17, 2021. He was 36. WREG reports that Memphis Police said one male victim was located and pronounced dead at the scene and confirmed Dolph was the victim.
Officers and witnesses gathered in front of a broken window at Makeda’s Butter Cookies, a bakery in a local Memphis strip mall. A man who identified himself as the business’ owner said a young man had been shot while buying cookies. TMZ reports that the rapper’s vehicle was found outside Makeda’s.
