Curren$y says that visiting Memphis isn't the same since Young Dolph died in 2021. He explained how not being able to reach out to his "potna" has changed the experience for him on Twitter in a post from last week. “Landing in Memphis and not reaching out to my potna to get the fire is crazy man. Long live flipper [dolphin emoji],” he wrote.

Young Dolph was shot and killed while visiting Makeda's Homemade Butter Cookies where he would often frequent while in town. An autopsy later revealed that he suffered 22 gunshot wounds in the attack. Dolph was just 36 years old at the time of his death.

In addition to not being excited about traveling to Memphis, Curren$y recently explained on Drink Champs that he doesn't like performing abroad either. “I only went overseas on one run, bro,” he said at the time. “Yeah, one run and then we came back and we bought some cars and I was just like, ‘I’m straight.’ All the ketchup didn’t taste like ketchup. Everything was fucking crazy. It was tough to be happy with weed. It was bad, bro. In every coffee shop I went in in Amsterdam, it was all just not good weed.” Be on the lookout for further updates on Curren$y on HotNewHipHop.
