NFL legend and Jackson State head football coach Deion Sanders is mourning the loss of rapper Young Dolph … penning an emotional prayer to his close family friend.
FOX 13 is reporting the “Major” rapper was gunned down outside a local cookie shop in Memphis on Wednesday. He was just 36 years old.
Following the news, Sanders shared a heartfelt tribute to Dolph … saying, “Lord help us as a people stop the hate, the violence and the hopelessness.”
“When we realize we matter others will as well. Lord help us right now.”
Dolph was tight with the Sanders family — he even attended a recent Jackson State football homecoming game in October, where he was spotted celebrating with the team in the locker room as his “100 Shots” hit blared over the speakers.
Ex-NBA center Kendrick Perkins also reacted to the news.
It be the people from your hometown that be out to get you! RIP Dolph 🙏🏾
