Memphis rapper Adolph Thornton Jr., commonly known as Young Dolph, will be recognised later this month at the Memphis-Shelby County Schools (MSCS) Hall of Fame Gala.

Last November, he was shot and died in front of Makeda's Cookies on Airways Boulevard.

Since then, Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith have been accused of murdering the rapper.

Adolph Thornton Jr., a native of Memphis and a graduate of Hamilton High School, left a legacy that affects millions of people even now.

Thornton, better known as Young Dolph, was a guy of many words who used music to express himself.

He formed his own vision through his music and encouraging demeanour, which also paved the door to freedom and empowerment for many in the community.

The event will take place at the East Memphis Hilton on Friday, August 26.

Joe Johnson, Derek Fordjour, and Glenda Glover are among the additional awardees.
