Young Dolph’s life partner Mia Jaye says Takeoff’s murder triggered her and pleads for the community to take a stand after his passing.
Almost a year ago Young Dolph was killed in Memphis, Tennesse while picking up cookies for his grandmother. A senseless murder that has left his life partner Mia Jaye raising their two children alone while still healing and searching for answers. Earlier this week Takeoff from the MIGOS was killed by a stray bullet in another senseless act of violence. His death marks yet another senseless crime within the hip-hop community. In the aftermath of Dolph’s murder Mia Jaye launched Black Men Deserve To Grow Old, a clothing company that advocates for change. With the recent murder of Takeoff, she is reflecting on her company mission and senseless violence.
