Young Dolph (né Adolph Robert Thornton Jr.) was fatally shot outside a local business called Makeda’s Butter Cookies on Airways Blvd., the Memphis Police Department wrote in a press release. He was 36.
Police said that “preliminary information” indicated that Dolph was the victim, but the information “will be confirmed once the identification process has been completed.”
Maurice Hill, the owner of Makeda’s, told local Fox affiliate WHBQ that the rapper, who was best known for his feature on the 2015 O.T. Genasis hit “Cut It,” had entered his place of business to buy cookies when a vehicle approached and someone fired the fatal shot.
“This shooting is another example of senseless gun violence we are experiencing locally and nationally,” the Memphis Police Department said in its statement. “Our hearts go out to the Thornton family and all who are affected by this horrific act of violence.”
Young Dolph broke onto the scene in 2016 with his debut album King of Memphis, and in the years since, continued to churn out at least one album each year.

In a 2020 story focusing on all Young Dolph had accomplished during the pandemic lockdown, GQ wrote that his songs “always ring out with gravitas and—either tauntingly, triumphantly, or gratefully—opulence.”
During an interview with the magazine, Dolph said he’d been spending quality time with his family, which was “the number one reason why I’ve been enjoying” lockdown.
“This s— just make me realize how much good times I’ve been missing out on, just around the house,” he said. “It ain’t got nothing to do with money. Your money don’t mean s—… It’s all about your happiness.”
