Last night (December 20, 2021), Gucci Mane released a new video commemorating and paying homage to his fallen friend, Young Dolph.
Adolph Robert Thorton Jr., better known by his stage name Young Dolph, was shot and killed outside a cookie store in his hometown of Memphis on November 17, 2021.
In his caption, Gucci writes, “Long Live Dolph. I did this one for you @youngdolph! Love you bro! Link in bio.”
“Long Live Dolph” was adopted from Gucci Mane’s latest project “So Icy Christmas” that was released on Friday, December 17, 2021. The video features Gucci rapping lyrics dedicated to Dolph as he stands inside a church. Footage of Dolph is also included in the scenes along with a scene of a memorial service held in honor of the rapper.
Long time partner of Young Dolph, Mia Jaye delivered a powerful speech at his memorial at FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee last Thursday (December 16, 2021).
Jaye expresses “I had the most pleasurable time of my life with Adolph Robert Thornton Jr,. He was the most brilliant man, intelligent man, unique man, charming man; he was just everything,” Mia Jane told attendees. “And I’m so, so blessed that I was able to experience him for nearly a decade.”
When the news of Young Dolph broke, Gucci wrote “R.I.P to my friend Dolph this broke my heart,”.
