The rapper Young Dolph was killed one year ago yesterday (November 17, 2022) in front of Makeda's Bakery on Airways Boulevard.
The family has made every effort to honor his legacy by giving back to the neighborhood in the same way that the chart-topper did when he was still alive.
But living with his untimely demise is still difficult.
His ex-girlfriend Mia Jerdine is mourning, yet she is neither paralyzed or unwilling to go on. She sees moving on as a call to action in Dolph's name, not as leaving him behind.
According to Fox 13, the Black Men Deserve to Grow Old movement was founded by Jerdine, the mother of Dolph's son and daughter.
In this organization, she will do her part to stop the growth of violence amongst the Black community.
“We want this to be something that we all lend our voices to,” she said. “We really want to align with grassroots organizations and different people who are like, look we’re going to try to fix this issue, we’re going to try to combat it within our community.”
This is only one of several initiatives to support the neighborhood. According to reliable sources, the first day of service will be sponsored by the late rapper's Ida Mae Foundation, a charity he established in memory of his grandmother.
Today, they provided individuals in need with free haircuts, lunch, and winter packages that included jackets, blankets, socks, and gloves.
His loved ones are establishing his legacy with sorrowful hearts. "They're continuing the spirit of Dolph," Jerdine stated.
