Young Dolph is buried in Memphis

A private funeral for Young Dolph was held in Memphis on Tuesday (November 30), following the rapper’s death earlier in the month.

The rapper – whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr – was shot and killed while entering a bakery, Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies. According to TMZ, a vehicle pulled up outside before someone shot Young Dolph through the window.

His loved ones have shared photos and videos of the funeral on social media, along with the funeral program. DJ Akademiks shared more photos from the show, which included images of his family and children, plus his nickname “Main Main” on the front.

Videos from Memphis show Dolph’s coffin being led out of the cemetery by a police escort.

According to Complex, members of Dolph’s family said in a statement after his death that “there are no words that sufficiently express the pain we feel.”

“Losing Adolph, Dolph, Man-Man, changes our lives forever. And although we will take each day as it comes, we are comforted to know that he leaves a legacy that reflects his heart. A heart that was for his family. A heart that was for people.

“We are grateful for the outpouring of love. We are grateful that his godly obligation to show kindness to the world is recognized. As a family, we have been blessed to call him our son, our nephew, our brother, our cousin, our partner, and our Father. AND now, we have the honor of calling him our angel. A role he has always played. “

The tributes were also performed by various musicians, such as Chance The Rapper, Megan Thee Stallion, Quavo and Offset, among others.

Following Dolph’s murder, a memorial was installed outside the cookie shop. Subsequently, a man was shot and injured at the scene, and was taken to hospital in non-critical condition. Earlier this week, three people appeared in court charged with aggravated assault, evasion of authority, reckless recklessness and robbery, among others, in connection with the shooting at the monument.
