Last November, the 36-year-old rapper born Adolph Robert Thornton Jr was shot and killed in his hometown of Memphis, while he was inside store buying cookies. He had previously been involved in a shooting incident in 207 ,but was not seriously hurt.

Following his death, a number of his contemporaries paid tribute to his talent.

Megan Thee Stallion tweeted: “I am sooo sick rn I am in disbelief! Praying for his family and friends! Rest In Peace to my friend a true legend Dolph.”

His family also issued a statement, saying: “There are no words that exist that sufficiently express the pain we are feeling. Losing Adolph, Dolph, Man-Man, changes our lives forever. And while we will take each day as it comes, we are comforted in knowing that he leaves a legacy that reflects his heart. A heart that was for his family. A heart that was for the people.”

It has also been announced that record label Paper Route Empire will release a tribute album to Dolph featuring contributions by Key Glock, Snupe Bandz and Kenny Muney.
