Young Dolph was honored on Wednesday, December 15 by having a street in Memphis renamed Adolph "Young Dolph" Thornton Jr. Avenue.

The move comes nearly a month after he was shot and killed in his hometown.

Dolph's longtime partner Mia Jaye was one of the people who spoke at the ceremony, and she praised the rapper.

 

"I'm here with my children," said Mia, who piggybacked off some words a relative said at the event. "She illustrated Adolph's character better. I can't even do it any better, 'cause everything that she said was spot on. He was a man after God's own heart. I often would call him and tell him he had a heart of David. He was just such a giver, had such a genuine, golden heart."

She continued. "I can remember when we first got together and he was so busy. But I would always say, 'I'mma stick around though because he has such a great heart ... I could tell he was trying to be helpful and do something for the betterment of his family. I had that intuition and it followed and it was true."

Dolph will also be honored today, December 16, at FedExForum in Memphis. Earlier this week, it was reported that tickets for the event sold out in just 90 minutes.
