Key Glock has returned to Instagram with a message. After previously deleting his social media accounts, following the death of his mentor Young Dolph, Key Glock took to his IG Stories Sunday (Nov. 21) to address those who have reached out to him. “STOP asking me if I’m ok. Knowing damn well I ain’t..” The post also included a broken heart emoji.
Key Glock, born Markeyvius LaShun Cathey, is Dolph’s cousin by marriage. Dolph signed his protégée to his Paper Route Empire label in 2017, and released the collaborative album Dum and Dummer with him in 2019 and the follow-up Dum and Dummer 2 this year. Local Memphis TV station WREG reported that Key Glock helped Dolph hand out 200 Thanksgiving turkeys on Monday (Nov. 15) at the West Cancer Center & Research Institute in Germantown, Tennessee.
Glock has kept mum regarding the death of Dolph until now. While it’s unclear who the 24-year-old rapper was addressing with his IG Stories post, it appears he is deeply saddened by the tragedy. Earlier this month, Key Glock’s Yellow Tape 2 album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It earned 36,000 album-equivalent units — which consisted of 35.8 million on-demand streams — in its first week according to MRC Data. Just days before he passed away, Dolph shared several Instagram posts promoting Glizock’s new project. “Key Glock New Project Yellow Tape 2 out now on all platforms.. shit haaaaaaard,” he captioned one post.
As Revolt reported, Dolph was shot and killed on Wednesday (Nov. 17) afternoon outside Makeda’s Butter Cookies in Memphis. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Memphis Police Department is still searching for the assailants who were caught on camera driving up to the storefront and firing shots at the 36-year-old father of two.
