Tickets to the public memorial for Young Dolph were gone within 90 minutes, according to Commercial Appeal.
On Monday morning (Dec. 13), free tickets for the late rapper’s “Celebration of Life” memorial hit Ticketmaster. The event is scheduled to take place on Thursday (Dec. 16) at 12 p.m. local time at the FedExForum in Dolph’s hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. During the memorial, people who were close to the “Preach” spitter will give their remarks and there will be performances by artists who are signed to his Paper Route Empire record label.
As REVOLT previously reported, Dolph was fatally shot last month while purchasing cookies inside Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies in his hometown. So far, no one has been arrested for his death. However, two gunmen were captured on surveillance video during the shooting. The white Mercedes that they used to flee the scene was located a few days later at an abandoned home just miles from where Dolph was shot. The Memphis Police Department has asked the public for patience as they continue their investigation into his death.
On Nov. 30, Dolph was laid to rest in a private ceremony in Memphis. Fox 13 reporter Jeremy Pierre tweeted photos of the funeral program, which included one picture of the 36-year-old and his grandmother together on an airplane. Pierre said it was the first time Dolph’s grandma had flown in a plane.
Following the service, Mia Jaye, the “RNB” rapper’s longtime partner, shared a touching tribute about the father of her two young children to Instagram. “I have two angels watching over me,” she wrote on a photo of herself with Dolph and her brother Jeremy Jerdine, who also lost his life to gun violence.
“Long Live My King… My Heart… My Soulmate… I love you,” the Momeo founder captioned the post.
