The Video:

One of the most popular independent rappers in the game, Young Dolph demands attention with his outsized personality unparalleled shine. Showing off his camo-colored Ferrari and his latest female friend, Dolph lives a boss life in By Mistake,” his latest video. A bombastic trap heater, “By Mistake” finds Dolph yelping excited ad-libs and perfecting his outlandish boasts: “I just smash, I don’t kiss/Hit the gas, I’m in the whip/Hate to brag, but I’m the shit.” In the video, Dolph defies an undercover police officer, does some business, and takes a tour of Memphis’s cheapest fast food establishments in his most expensive car. “By Mistake” is the latest single from Role ModelDolph’s first full-length of 2018, following Major,” featuring Key Glock. Distributed by Paper Route EMPIRERole Model arrives on September 21st.

Carrying the momentum from a tumultuous, yet monstrously successful 2017 that included three full-length releases and two near-death experiences, Young Dolph is firing on all cylinders in 2018. Dolph kicked off the year with the defiant N****s Get Shot Everyday EP, an adrenaline rush of a six-track project that contrasts Dolph’s luxurious life with the dangers that come from being the industry’s most fearlessly honest emcee. Earlier this summer, Dolph shared the epic video for “Slave Owner,” which drew inspiration from Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and took an exaggerated look at the relationship between artists and record labels, positing label execs as slave owners and comparing signed artists to Samuel L. Jackson’s Uncle Tom character from the film. One week later, Dolph stole the show at Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival, making national headlines when he brought onstage two Duke University baristas, who were fired for playing his music, paid them $20,000 cash, and led them and the audience in a rousing rendition of his hit (and the song Duke University deemed to be a fireable offense) “Get Paid.” With a massive, loyal fanbase and a ceaseless work ethic, Young Dolph strides into the next chapter of his career in style.

Young Dolph Background

Born on the South Side of Chicago and raised in notoriously known Castalia Heights neighborhood in South Memphis, Young Dolph emerged in the urban music scene and amassed a large dedicated fan base.

Dolph grew up in a hectic environment, surrounded by drugs and alcohol, but that never completely defined him. He always had a passion for music, but it wasn’t until his peers recognized his talent and suggested that he take rap seriously. Eventually his hustle mentality and creativity led him to consistently dropping mixtape after mixtape. With authentic punch lines and stern club bangers, he created his own lane of High Class Street Music.

On the strength of releasing consistent quality mixtapes, Dolph became one of the only independent musicians to have multiple Top 20 records with “Cut It,” “Preach,” “California” and Top 40 records with “Make the World Go Around” and “Pulled Up.” Yet to release an album, the success Dolph has gained from his mixtapes have led to collaborations with some of the most influential artists in hip-hop including 2 Chainz,Juicy JYoung Jeezy, and Rick Ross. In 2015, Dolph headlined his own tour selling out throughout the country. – HotNewHipHop
