Young Dolph To Be Commemorated With Memphis Street Named After Him


Young Dolph To Be Commemorated With Memphis Street Named After Him 1

 

 Young Dolph’s legacy will be commemorated by his hometown of Memphis. According to TMZ, Memphis City Council announced plans on Friday (December 3) to rename a street in the fallen rapper’s honor at an intersection near the Memphis Depot Industrial Park.

There will be an unveiling ceremony for the street on December 15 with family members of Dolph’s present. City councilman J.B. Smiley reportedly led the charge for the street renaming once he received the Thorton family’s blessing.

 

“[Young Dolph] sent the message that someone who went to the same schools as them, and walked the same streets that they do, was able to not only create a successful legacy for himself, but also prioritized family and community,” Dolph’s family relayed in a statement.

Doph was laid to rest in a private ceremony on November 30 in Memphis. Photos and clips surfaced online of the funeral procession and the program featuring heartbreaking photos of the late 36-year-old with his family. He leaves behind his girlfriend Mia Jaye and their two kids in daughter Aria and son Tre.
