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.

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.

    WHAT DID YOUNG DOLPH SAY ABOUT HIS BEEF WITH YO GOTTI?

    In 2017, Dolph sat down with the Breakfast Club to address his alleged ill-will towards Gotti.

    However, Dolph continued to refer to Gotti as “lame” throughout the interview.

    He went on to recall his first time meeting Gotti, where Gotti used Collective Music Group’s Zed Zilla and Starlito to convince him to join CMG records.

    “This my first time meeting you,” said Dolph. “And you going to really sit and downplay your artists and throw your artists under the bus to try to persuade me in to come over there?”

    In 2017, Gotti’s CMG artist Black Youngsta took to Instagram to record an expletive-filled video claiming that he was going to “smack the s***” out of Dolph.

    Black Youngsta upped the ante by allegedly showing up in Young Dolph’s neighborhood in Memphis with several of his posse, who were heavily armed, reported XXL.

    WHAT WAS YOUNG DOLPH’S ‘BEEF’ WITH YO GOTTI?

    Young Dolph and Yo Gotti were said to have had beef with each other for a long while before the tension came to an end.

    XXL Magazine announced Gotti will be releasing a new album following Dolph’s death.

    The magazine tweeted the album cover for CM10 on November 24, 2021 with a screenshot of Gotti’s Instagram post.
