Rapper Adolph Robert “Young Dolph” Thornton Jr. was from the United States. Adolph Thornton Sr. and an unidentified mother welcomed Thornton into the world on July 27, 1985, in Chicago, Illinois. In addition, he had two brothers and two sisters. He was Jarad Anthony “Juice Wrld” Higgins, the rapper’s second cousin.

When Thornton was two years old, his parents relocated to Memphis, Tennessee. Thornton was raised by his grandmother after his parents developed a crack cocaine addiction while he was a child. In 2003, Thornton graduated from Hamilton High School in Memphis, Tennessee.

Paper Route Campaign, Thornton’s debut mixtape, was released in 2008. 2010 saw the establishment of his own indie record label, Paper Route Empire, two years later. In 2016, he eventually dropped his debut album, The King of Memphis, following the release of mixtapes. The single “Get Paid” was included on the album. Music critics gave the album positive reviews, although it didn’t sell at least 500,000 copies.

Thornton’s second album, Bulletproof, was released in 2017. One of the singles from the album, “That’s How I Feel,” featured Radric Delantic Davis, also known as “Gucci Mane.” However, Bulletproof did not sell at least 500,000 copies, much as his previous album. His third studio album, Thinking Out Loud, was released in the same year and included the hits “While U Here,” “Believe Me,” and “Drippy.” Once more, the album’s sales were below 500,000 copies. Throughout his career, Thornton would also release the albums Role Model (2018), Dum and Dummer (2019), Rich Slave (2020), and Dum and Dummer 2 (2021), which he co-wrote with rapper Key Glock.

Throughout his career, Thornton has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including Tauheed “2 Chainz” Epps, Gucci Mane, and Megan Jovon Ruth/”Megan Thee Stallion” Pete. Along with colleagues Memphis Raptors Mario Sentell Giden “Yo Gotti” Mims and Sammie Marquez “Blac Youngsta” Benson, Thornton has also been embroiled in high-profile feuds. Thus, Young Dolph and his fellow rappers would release a ton of diss tunes, including “SHAKE SUM” and “Play Wit You Bitch.”

Thornton was shot three times in 2017 outside of a Hollywood, Los Angeles retail establishment, but he lived. After the incident, Corey McClendon was taken into custody and charged with attempted murder; however, he was ultimately exonerated of all charges. When Thornton, 36, went to Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies in Memphis on November 17, 2021, to pick some cookies for his mother, he was shot and killed by two unidentified attackers. The case is still open. Following his assassination, a number of tributes were released by other musicians and the Memphis community at large.

Tre Tre and Aria, his two daughters, and his longterm partner Mia Jaye survive Thornton.
