He rose to fame in 2014 with the song “High Class Street Music 4.” Dolph was on his way to Makeda’s cookies and was shot with a semi- automatic gun. The killers still remain unnamed. Young Dolph was killed unprovoked and given the suspect without a reason. He was a prominent member of the community and was showing his support to a local business. Because of this murder, more violence began popping up. People who were wishing Dolph a goodbye were being shot at and killed as well. He left behind a great legacy with performing at Rolling Loud and Beale Street Music Fest, and leaving with two amazing hit songs “On the River” and “Major.”
