i’m not a hiphop fox all like that so i don’t know much about young dolph.
i’m learning about him because he was killed today.
he was gunned down in his hometown of memphis while supporting a black business.
right before he was shot,
young dolph was picking up cookies for his mother at makedas cookies.
this was a video from a few days ago at the same cookie shop:

it’s admirable to want to support a business from his hood but the reality is…
Not everyone from your hood or hometown is supportive of you.
some will set you up to have you killed for jealousy or some beef from ages ago.
add on social media and our hunger to post every move doesn’t help.
most rappers are often killed going back to their hoods.
look at alpo martinez from harlem.
a huge drug kingpin,
and alleged snitch,
running around out here like he was invisible.
( x see that story here )
some people ain’t move past the beef.
i don’t know why any rapper chooses to go back tbh.
ima be 110 with you:
When I make it,
I’m outta the hood and I won’t be coming back.
for some white folks who love coming here,
it’s cool and fascinating due to the music and movies.
the hood takes them out of their lives and into something unfamiliar.
it’s exciting for them.
for those of us who live here,
there is nothing interesting about this hood life.
they don’t label some black folks as crab in the barrel for nothing.
there are a few black businesses that i love in my hood,
i’ll have the products shipped or have an assistant go get it.
very sad news to hear about young dolph.
he was 36.
