Born on July 27, 1985, in Chicago, Illinois, Young Dolph’s parents relocated from Chicago to Memphis, Tennessee, when Dolph was age two. Related to rapper Juice Wrld (who is his cousin), Dolph had brothers and two sisters.
Young Dolph grew up under the care of his grandmother because his parent were into drugs and didn’t spend enough time with him.
He attended Hamilton High School in Memphis.
Considering his background, we bet on Memphis as his burial place. Since he spent most of his time in the city; discovered his talent, created monster hit singles, made friends, established his businesses and connections, Memphis should be the right place for his burial.
However, we are not his family to decide this.
