Fans are celebrating Young Dolph on his 38th posthumous birthday today

Fans are celebrating Young Dolph on his 38th posthumous birthday today.

Today would have been the 38th birthday of Young Dolph. The late rapper, entrepreneur, and visionary of Paper Route Empire leaves behind a legacy filled with classic bangers and moments that fans will cherish forever. In celebration, The SOURCE salutes Young Dolph a Happy Heavenly Birthday and recalls some of his most iconic fan moments.

Before his death, Young Dolph had already secured a legacy in Memphis as an independent rapper who became one of the city’s biggest recent breakthroughs. So it’s fitting that the MC’s first posthumous single, “Hall of Fame,” takes stock of his success. “You can walk in any trap and I bet they know my name / Frank Matthews of the South, put me in the hall of fame,” he raps, comparing his hustle to the drug kingpin. He goes on to boast about meetings with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation (even shooting his shot at a verse with Jay) and earning his first million, over a victorious, strings-laden beat.

in 2020, Dolph was releasing his Rich Slave album. In promotion, he gave away a Lamborghini to a lucky fan. “THEM: ‘Dolph not gonna give away his Lamborghini, why would he do that?’” he wrote on Instagram. “ME: ‘BECAUSE I GOT THE BEST FANS IN THE WHOLE WORLD.’”

The song arrives on what would’ve been Dolph’s 37th birthday, July 27. It follows Dolph’s 2021 collaborative album with Key Glock, Dum and Dummer 2, and the rapper’s first posthumous feature, on Gucci Mane’s “Blood All on It,” from earlier this year. Dolph, born Adolph Thornton Jr., died last November after a shooting outside a Memphis cookie store. Two men, Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith, have been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting, along with attempted murder for shooting at Dolph’s brother as well. Both pleaded not guilty.
