“Start paying attention to Young Dolph before you look stupid as shit,” – Noisey
After having his car assaulted with 100 shots in Charlotte, Young Dolph emerged stronger than ever, haters bouncing off him like bullets off Luke Cage. With the new album Bulletproof slated for release on April Fool’s Day 2017, Dolph celebrates his invincibility with the visual for “Run It Up,” a braggadocious trap anthem from the icy Gelato mixtape. In the WorldStarHipHop-hosted clip, which has already earned over 15,000 views in its early hours, Dolph drops bands at designer stores and converses with a clone of himself, chillin’ in a snow-white Lambo. No matter what is thrown (or shot) at him, Young Dolph remains the King of Memphis.
Last week, Young Dolph released “that’s how i feel” featuring Gucci Mane, the first of many biting tracks from Bulletproof. With a salty feature from Guwop and a tracklisting that reads like angry trap poetry, Dolph Obama unloads a clip of his own on the upcoming album, leaving no survivors in his wake.
Always on a victory parade, Dolph dropped a string of visuals last month in which he rocked Versace snow boots in “Whole Lot,” unveiled the Ten Baller Commandments on “Baller Alert,” saluted the Black Mafia Family on “Meech,” and celebrated his success with the opulent video for “Gelato.” Gelato was praised by Stereogum, who said, “Dolph’s new mixtape, Gelato, is a ridiculously solid piece of trap music… There’s no thirst in him. His shit-talk feels effortless. And that’s why he’s winning.” Gelato capitalized on the momentum from Dolph’s triumphant 2016, highlighted by the three full-lengths Rich Crack Baby, Bo$$e$ and $hooter$, and King of Memphis, named by XXL as one of the Best Projects of the Year. The 11-track Gelato mixtape is now available for purchase on iTunes and stream on SoundCloud. Stay tuned for Bulletproof, slated for release on April 1st.

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 J, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross. In 2015, Dolph headlined his own tour selling out throughout the country. – HotNewHipHop
EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels. Given its reputation, EMPIRE works with today’s hottest talent from superstars such as T.I. and red-hot newcomers such as Anderson .Paak. While remaining 100% independent, EMPIRE has also partnered with Atlantic Records for a joint venture, home to breakout star D.R.A.M. and joined forces with Republic Records for the release of Sage The Gemini’s Remember Me album.
