Farewell to a Memphis Star: A Tribute to Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr. “Young Dolph”
With back to the wall, and eyes on tomorrow, a star was fell from the sky delivered to immortals. When a rap musician first puts down their voice, they already survived dozens of near-deaths. This one made it to heights unknown and now the flights of many are undone. This time God has shown that the meek do inherit the Earth.
Mr. Thornton survived a childhood clenched in the jaws of cartels and assasins he could not see. He survived a childhood where elders were reduced to impulses and non-traditional heroes clenched babies in their trembling arms. And through that, a gentleman climbed up to king heights and every day was at his mercy, until the darkness and envious has their way. It is said that streets have appetites of Ogres under bridges waiting for flesh. These Ogres lay in wait because they want the tastiest flesh – the flesh of the meek turned King. Rest in peace, Mr.Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr. “Young Dolph”.
