Video: Young Dolph – “What’s The Deal”
Dolph Still Reigns as The King of Memphis In New Visual From Thinking Out Loud
“Young Dolph has cultivated that formula that makes the bando jump” – XXL
“What makes Dolph exemplary is his affinity for memorable hooks and catchy call-and-response punch lines” – Complex

“Start paying attention to Young Dolph before you look stupid as shit,” – Noisey
Still in the midst of recovery from a serious shooting incident in September, during which he was shot twice in the arm and once in the leg, Young Dolph stands triumphant. While Dolph’s last visual “While U Here” had the rapper taking a moment to contemplate the dangers of street life, “What’s The Deal” is a boastful banger with the Memphis rapper assuring his haters that he’s alive and well. With menacing production from DJ Squeeky, “What’s The Deal” is the leading track from Thinking Out Loud, Dolph’s latest album. “What’s The Deal” is the fourth video from Thinking Out Loud, following “While U Here,” the FADER-premiered “Point Across,” and the emotional “Believe Me,” which featured footage of Dolph emerging from the hospital and reuniting with his family.
With the release of Thinking Out Loud, Young Dolph also launched a brand new capsule collection of merchandise inspired by the project. The collection includes specially designed hoodies, t-shirts, bulletproof vests (**DISCLAIMER** this item is solely the plate carrier vest, MOLLE plates sold separately) and a bandana, all adorned with mockups of the album art or decorated with some of Dolph’s favorite phrases. The new capsule will also offer physical copies of the album, available on vinyl, CD, or cassette. Distributed by EMPIRE, Thinking Out Loud is a warning shot to Dolph’s haters and doubters and an infectiously confident statement of rap supremacy. Featuring appearances from 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Ty Dolla $ign, and D.R.A.M., and production from Mike WiLL Made It, Zaytoven, Cassius Jay, Drumma Boy, Da Honorable C-N.O.T.E., and others, Thinking Out Loud is available to stream and purchase at the DSP of your choice.

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.
