MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis rapper Young Dolph will be honored with a public memorial ceremony this week at the FedExForum.

A spokesperson familiar with the event confirms it is set for Thursday at noon until 2 p.m. Doors will open at 11 a.m.

Organizers say tickets are now sold out.

Young Dolph was shot and killed last month while visiting Makeda’s Cookies on Airways Boulevard.

He leaves behind two children and his wife, Mia Jaye.

The rapper was laid to rest on Nov. 30 in Memphis nearly two weeks after his murder.

His funeral was closed to the public but the community has been honoring the rapper publicly with a display of candles, flowers, stuffed animals and even a Christmas tree outside Makeda’s Cookies which remains closed until 2022.
