Young Dolph, 36, was videotaped by a local Memphis TV station being philanthropic in what is claimed to be his last known interview. The interview with WREG took place at the West Cancer Center & Research Institute in Germantown, Tennessee on Monday, November 15th.
Young Dolph gives back
Young Dolph reportedly came by the cancer facility to offer up 200 Thanksgiving turkeys, according to the site. During his visit, he signed autographs and took photos with colleagues while expressing his appreciation for their assistance.
According to WREG, Young Dolph informed them that his aunt was currently undergoing treatment at the West Cancer Center & Research Institute. Both his grandmother and uncle had previously been patients there.
“Over the years, I had several family members to come through here and been patients of this clinic, so I just really wanted to show up and show them my support, and show them how thankful I am, just for them being there,” Young Dolph said.
“I appreciate all the love, all the support throughout the whole city,” he added. In the interview, Dolph also revealed that he had just returned from handing out Thanksgiving turkeys at a Memphis mall, and that he expected to hand out more throughout the week. Tragically, Dolph died two days later, on November 17th, after being shot in a drive-by shooting.
The owner of the Paper Route Empire record label was apparently buying cookies at Makeda’s Butter Cookies in Memphis when two guys in a white Mercedes Benz decided to drive to the storefront and opened fire.
He was already on his way to deliver a cargo of turkeys to residents of the Castalia Heights neighborhood, where he grew up.
The perpetrators who killed Dolph are still on the loose, according to the Memphis Police Department. WREG reported that authorities have received multiple tips on the shooting and that the high degree of community engagement could make a difference in solving the crime.
