Memphis Tigers men’s basketball coach and former NBA player Penny Hardaway is devastated by the murder of rapper Young Dolph.
Dolph, 36, was murdered in Memphis on Wednesday afternoon when two suspects shot him at Makeda’s Butter Cookies.
In a video with a P.S.A. message via TMZ, Hardaway spoke on how he felt with a dark cloud over the city of Memphis.
“A guy that came from Memphis, 901 born, in the city all the time, giving back to his community,” Hardaway said … “to get murdered like that, it just doesn’t sit well with me, man.”
The reality is when Black men die, they’re painted as a saint with disregard for any personal unresolved issues they had against another Black men.
As much as Hardaway like others say “we need to do better”, Black people as a whole won’t make those adjustments in a ungodly world.
Dolph was a community man who made sure his kids were set financially like the late Nipsey Hussle.
