In Young Dolph’s popular song “Get Paid,” he gave listeners two primary rules for wealth accumulation. “Rule number one (What’s that?), get the money first (Okay). Rule number two (What?), don’t forget to get the money (Ayy).” And that’s the advice he lived by and supported his family with, even after his passing. Born Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., the Memphis-based rapper was known for some hits like “Major,” “Preach,” and “To Be Honest.” Beyond his music, Dolph was also known for his philanthropic work in his hometown. According to Mic, between 2015-2019, Dolph gave out turkeys to families for Thanksgiving. He also donated $25,000 to Hamilton High School, the rapper’s alma mater. Days before his tragic passing in November 2021, Dolph was planning a food and clothing giveaway for needy families in Memphis, TN. And while his acts of service and kindness reached many in the community, he was keen on building wealth for his family.
