young dolphin wasn’t afraid to return to Memphis – he made the trip without realizing any beef going on and without any recent threats to his life – which makes his murder much more astonishing to those around him… TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the late rapper tell us that Dolph was thrilled to be back in his hometown and had booked a week full of charity events for his community.
We’re told he had no fear wandering the streets of Memphis without security guards, and that’s exactly why he made the fateful stop at Makeda’s Cookies, one of his favorite local spots.
Of course, this was the cookie shop where 2 men ambushed Dolph, opening fire and To kill him on the spot.
We’re told all Dolph wanted to do this week was spread positivity in Memphis, as evidenced by the multiple turkey giveaways he had organized and the plans he had with local rappers.
TMZ broke history, members of the Dolph’s Paper Route label organized a turkey gift Friday after others were canceled following Dolph’s murder. Volunteers distributed hundreds of birds to families in need because that’s what Dolph wanted.
The 2 suspects in Dolph’s murder have not been arrested. Monitoring published images of the attack show them both covered from head to toe (including masks) and holding guns.
Shortly after the shoot, the cops were on guard To Yo Gotti‘s restaurant in the area – for fear of more violence – but the restaurant was never attacked.
Dolph and Gotti have had feuds in the past, but there was nothing recent, and Gotti has not been linked to his murder at all.
