It's not just music that those who have been affected by Memphis rapper Young Dolph will be left without in the wake of his tragic death earlier this month.

Known for his numerous community outreach programs, like giving away children's school supplies and thanksgiving turkeys to those in need, it is now up to others to continue his legacy.

On November 17, the day of the tragic shooting, Dolph was scheduled to keep his own turkey giveaway tradition going but the 36-year-old was gunned down that afternoon outside of the Memphis bakery Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies.

Enter DJ Rocksteddy, Paper Route Woo, Snupe Bandz, and other representatives from Paper Route Empire who took to the streets of Dolph's Memphis, TN neighborhood of Castalia on Friday the 19th to hand out hundreds of turkeys to families in need, in honor of their fallen friend.
