Last week, Young Dolph’s estate released its first posthumous LP from the late rapper, entitled Paper Route Frank. The album dropped one year after Dolph, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., was tragically murdered in his hometown of Memphis at the age of 36.
The rapper’s estate, along with Paper Route Empire and the Trap Music Museum, will continue to celebrate Dolph’s legacy and impact on rap music through a touring pop-up museum exhibit. The museum, called Dolphland, will “display original curated art and personal items that reflect Young Dolph’s unforgettable lyricism, personality, entrepreneurial spirit, philanthropy, and historic moments from his legendary career,” the press release reads.
The touring pop-up will kick off in New York City on January 13 through 15. It won’t stop there but will continue in major cities across the country, including stops in Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta and Chicago.
Dolph was known for his philanthropy in Memphis, particularly involving youth and the public school system. Paper Route Empire CEO Daddy-O said that the goal of Dolphland is to “showcase the character of a leader and businessman” and inspire future entrepreneurs by spotlighting Dolph’s journey.
“Dolph has a great base of fans, and he loved going out and engaging with them. We wanted to do something that still provided a way for that engagement beyond just the music,” Young Dolph’s manager Allen Parks added. “We brought the idea to the Trap Music Museum, and they were excited to help bring a dope experience to life for all who will attend.”
Tickets for Dolphland will go on sale on December 26. Each ticket purchase will automatically be entered to win $100,000 USD, with the winner announced at the end of the tour.
