In another tribute, user @btsquared2 chose to highlight one of the rapper’s charitable donations. In her tweet, she linked to a past article about the time the “Cut It” emcee gave $20,000 to two baristas who were fired for playing his song at a coffee shop on Duke’s campus.
Dolph was fatally shot on Wednesday (Nov. 17) as he made a purchase at the Makeda’s Cookie Shop in Memphis, Tennessee, a store he often visited and promoted on Instagram just last week. Some supporters likened his death to Nipsey Hussle, who was also killed in his hometown.
“What happened to Young Dolph is heartbreaking fr because this exactly how it be in the hood when niggas start acquiring any success for themselves people start hating and doing shiest shit to set you up,” added @LondynnMilan. “Our own people can be our biggest enemies when they see us shine.”
Many Dolph fans sent condolences to his girlfriend and children while mentioning he was a proud family man. Others questioned how Key Glock, who has deleted his social media accounts, has reacted to the news.
