Countless talented musicians have met untimely ends, sometimes in freak accidents, other times in gang feuds, and certainly far too many times due to drug overdoses.
Young Dolph was shot and killed on November 17 in his hometown of Memphis. The rapper was entering Makeda's Butter Cookies when a car reportedly pulled up outside the store and shot him through the window. Young Dolph, whose real name was Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., was 36 years old. He had released five studio albums during his career, the most famous being the 2020 album 'Rich Slave.' Thornton was a cousin of the later rapper Juice Wrld, who died of an accidental overdose at the age of 21 in 2019.
