Along with just being a rapper, Dolph was also an influential member of his community, known for his charitable acts and assistance to members of his community.
Meanwhile, Young Dolph’s Paper Route Empire artists including DJ Rocksteddy, Paper Route Woo, and Snupe Bandz, continued his annual Thanksgiving tradition of hosting a turkey giveaway at the St. James Missionary Baptist Church in Memphis. Dolph planned this year’s event prior to his passing and his artists decided to carry out the charitable work.
“It’s very important because we still have folks out here unfortunate and probably don’t have money to buy turkeys,” rapper Snupe Bandz said while speaking with Fox 13.
Young Dolph, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., was shot and killed on November 17 while trying to buy cookies from one of his favorite spots in Memphis, Makeda’s Homemade Cookies. He was age 36 at the time of his death.
