Young Dolph and Derrion ‘Dmuney’ Childs death updates

COMEDIAN Derrion ‘Dmuney’ Childs died nearly a week after making jokes about the murder of Memphis rapper Young Dolph.

In a post just one day after Dolph passed, Childs said: “If the news don’t post me as a Memphis legend when I die then they HATEDDDDD,” he wrote, accompanied by a heart emoji.

Shortly after the news of Dolph’s death hit the internet, Derrion ‘DMuney’ Childs wrote on Facebook: “MANEEEE THEM FOLKS JUST KILLED YOUNG DOLPH I LOVE MEMPHIS CUH WE SO GANGSTA,” with laughing emojis.

“MANE CUHH IF YEEN FROM MEMPHIS OR IF YEEN THE POLICE JUST QUIT TRYNA SOLVE YOUNG DOLPH MURDER,” he continued.

“THESE FOLKS DONE CAME & LOCKED MY GMA UP.”

The Memphis Police Department announced on Twitter they responded to a shooting in November 2021. “Officers located three victims nearby on Vayu Dr. Male #1 was xported critical but did not survive his injury,” the department said.

On Friday, November 26, police confirmed the deceased male was identified as Derrion Childs, 21. He reportedly died on November 23, just under a week after the shooting that killed Dolph.

Young Dolph was shot down on November 17, after a car pulled up and fired through the front window of Makeda’s Cookies in Tennessee.

Two days after Dolph‘s passing, his daughter’s mother Mia Jaye broke her silence and shared a heartbreaking video in the wake of the rapper’s slaying.

“Question is… How am I ever going to tell my babies that daddy is never coming home?” Jaye wrote on her Instagram Story over a video of Dolph playing with their daughter, Ari.

“God give me strength… Adolph I love you with all my heart and soul,” Jaye continued on the next Story slide.

  • MEMPHIS LEADERS TELLING KIDS TO ‘BE A BEACON OF HOPE’

    The whole community is still in shock, said Jonathan Torres, the CEO of nonprofit Memphis Athletic Ministries, but it’s been hardest on the 450 kids they help daily.

    The nonprofit brought in grief counselors to help the young people the organization serves process their grief.

    “Here, there was an immediate sense of grief and curiosity about what will happen next,” Torres said. “There was a reality of how much he was loved. So why was he targeted?

    “His actions spoke really loudly and he was all about giving back to the community,” Torres said. “He always believed in pouring back into your neighbors and under-resourced community.

    “We’re telling our kids, ‘Continue what Young Dolph started and be a beacon of hope.'”

  • HOW YOUNG DOLPH GAVE BACK

    No matter how much Young Dolph blew up, he always reached back to Memphis to take talented hip hop artists under his wing, and performed at pep rallies when his former teacher Michael Bates asked.

    “The main thing I told him and all my students is to be aware and strive and give back,” Bates said.

    “You owe the neighborhood where you come from, but I preached all the time your zip code wasn’t going to be who you were going to be in life.

    “He actually did that. He took the trauma and pain that he went through and turned himself into a good family man,” Bates said.

  • YOUNG DOLPH ‘BET ON HIMSELF’

    Michael Bates was Young Dolph’s teacher in seventh grade and then assistant principal when the rapper was in eighth grade.

    He said Young Dolph was always good at English Language Arts and “ran around, played basketball and chased the girls.”

    “He was a young kid then, but I still remember the way he carried himself. It wasn’t different or something to set him apart. He just always lived up to the monarch of his name.”

    In African tradition, Adolph means nobility or noble wolf.

    “He bet on himself. He always said he was going to blow up. And he did,” Bates said.

  • FORMER TEACHER RECALLS YOUNG DOLPH’S CONFIDANCE

    Young Dolph graduated and was still “hustling” his way to the top when he visited Michael Bates in 2008.

    At the time of the visit, Bates, formerly Young Dolph’s 7th grade geography teacher, was a principal.

    “To me, he was always Adolph. So my secretary said Mr Thornton is here to see you.

    “He brought this CD with him and said ‘you have to listen to this. I’m ’bout to make it big,'” Bates recalled Young Dolph telling him.

    “I know how tough it is to make as a rapper, so I wanted him to get a job. I pushed him to be a fireman, but he just smirked, and said again, ‘I’m about to blow up,'” Bates said. “And then he did.”

  • ‘IT’S DIFFICULT TO LOSE AN ICON,’ SAYS TEACHER

    Before Young Dolph was a household name in the hiphop world, he sold mixtapes out of the trunk of his car and in corner stores in the Castalia section of Memphis, his 7th grade geography teacher Michael Bates told The Sun.

    “This a tough neighborhood, and for the kids, he was their Muhammad Ali. That’s the impact he had,” Bates said.

    “It’s difficult to lose an icon. Our city is still in shock,” he said two days after Young Dolph, whose real name was Adolph Robert Thornton Jr, was shot dead at Makeda’s Cookies on Wednesday.

    “I just want everyone to understand that someone took away an image for people who want to do better,” Bates told The Sun.

    “As a society, if you take away those images, what do we have left? The world lost a national icon but, for the teachers, we lost a beloved student.”

  • MEMPHIS RESIDENTS MOURN ‘THEIR HERO’

    The Memphis community is still in shock after a loss that locals have compared to losing Muhammad Ali, residents and community leaders told The Sun in exclusive interviews.

  • YOUNG DOLPH SPOKE ABOUT BEING ‘TARGETED’ SINCE HIS TEEN YEARS

    The 36-year-old rapper previously spoke about his belief that he has been a target of violence since his teenage years.

    “I’ve been targeted since I was 17, 18, 19,” he stated in an interview with The Guardian.

    The rapper admitted that he did not grow up in the best surroundings, which caused him to turn to certain methods to make money.

    When asked how, he responded: “Hustling – you’ve been seeing it for so long that you start to partake in it. I clocked in when I was 12 and never clocked out.”

    He further explained how his surroundings had an influence on him around that time.

    “Even when leaving school, you either had to go up past the two stores and the corner, where everything is going on, or walk up this long ass boring street up the hill to go home.

    “We wanted to go past where the action is. We were in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades, seeing this living hell.”

  • YOUNG DOLPH’S FAMILY RELEASES STATEMENT ON HIS DEATH

    Young Dolph’s family released a statement honoring the late rapper.

    “There are no words that exist, that sufficiently express the pain we are feeling as a family. Losing Adolph, Dolph, Man-Man, changes our life forever,” the statement began.

    “And while we take each day as it comes, we are comforted in knowing that he leaves a legacy that reflects his heart. A heart that was for his family, a heart that was for the people. We are grateful for the outpouring of love.

    “We are grateful that his goldy obligation to show kindness to the world is being acknowledged.

    “As a family, we were blessed to call him our son, our nephew, our brother, our cousin, court partner and our father. And now, we have the honor of calling him our angel. A role he has always played,” they concluded.
