    Rest In Power Young Dolph. It's a damn shame. Jealousy and hatred are an all time high.
    Prayers up for Young Dolph"s wife and two children.
    It's crazy as hell when a young black man is murdered because he"s successful.
    Haters hated on Young Dolph because he was successful.
    When are we as a black gonna stop hating on each other and start celebrating each other's success?
    Of all the other races, we as a black race is the only race who hates on each other.
    Where is it written that a rapper"s days are numbered because he"s successful?
    Love live Adolph From Texas to Memphis 💙🐬
    REAL ONE ! 💯🐬
    So sad my kids loves your music RIP ~Akron,Ohio
    Yass! Young Dolph you represented Hamilton High School well!
    My black race we love to see each other doing bad but hate to see each other doing good.
    Rappers hated on Young Dolph just like rappers hated on Tupac
    And will everybody please stop it with Black Lives Matter bs?
    We as a black race don't say Black Lives Matter when we're killing each other.
    Rest easy brother
    WE NEED TO BRING HIS KILLERS TO JUSTICE; HE DIDN’T DESERVE THIS‼️
    This was the most SOLID BROTHER ; This brother was putting money back into his community
    Prayers for his family
