Young Dolph & Key Glock’s Dum & Dummer 2 Album Debuts at #8 on the Billboard 200
The Paper Route EMPIRE Duo Share the Young Dolph-Directed Video for Album Highlight “RAIN RAIN”
Dum & Dummer 2 is the Second Collab Album From the Rappers Pitchfork Called a “Once in a Generation Rap Duo”
“When you doin’ big sh*t, hell yeah, they supposed to hate” – Young Dolph.
Crashing charts and cashing checks, Young Dolph and Key Glock are indie rap superstars. Today, Dolph and Glock announce that their new album Dum and Dummer 2 debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 this week. The new collaborative album generated nearly 36k sales equivalent units across platforms and scored the fifth-biggest streaming debut on Spotify during its first weekend of release. Dum & Dummer 2 is the duo’s second Top 10 album, following the original Dum and Dummer, which debuted at #8 in 2019, and Dolph’s third Top 10, following August’s #4-peaking Rich Slave.
To celebrate the success of their new album, Dolph and Glock share “RAIN RAIN,” their new music video for a highlight track from the project. Produced by PRE sound architect Bandplay, who provides vibey acoustic guitars that add to the song’s rainy day atmosphere, “RAIN RAIN” is a missive directed towards the haters, as Dolph and Glock trade tough-talking witticisms: “My time cost money, got a price tag on it,” asserts Dolph. Directed by Dolph himself, the video illustrates how the two rappers spend their ideal rainy days–the older Young Dolph kicks back in his mansion–complete with a bowling alley and a grand piano–as he thumbs through a glossy coffee table book. Meanwhile, the young-and-hungry Key Glock goes hard in a neon-lit club, rocking his Cartier glasses in the company of several beautiful women.
Dum and Dummer 2 finds Dolph & Glock operating at a high level of craftsmanship, charisma, and luxury. With artwork that references MTV’s most famous duo, Beavis & Butthead, Dum & Dummer 2 establishes the two rappers (and cousins) as two halves of the same brain, each seamlessly picking up threads and finishing lines that the other leaves off. Last week, the album received a glowing review from Pitchfork, who awarded the album a 7.5 score and cemented Young Dolph & Key Glock as a “once-in-a-generation” rap duo, akin to 8Ball & MJG or Method Man & Redman, and “one of the most in-sync alliances in the genre today.”
The album spans 20-tracks, boasting production from PRE’s own Bandplay, who shows off his musicality and versatility, along with beats from Memphis native Sosa808 and decorated producer Ramy On The Beat. Dum & Dummer 2 is home to a series of standout singles, including the hauntingly flex-heavy“Case Closed,” the soulful winter-weather celebration “Aspen,” the classily ratchet “Sleep With The Roaches,” and the ice cold opening track “Penguins.“ Dum and Dummer 2 features several solo songs from both Young Dolph and Key Glock interspersed with the heavy-hitting tag-team tracks, including Key Glock’s bombastic “I’m The Type,” and Dolph’s bite-sized ad-lib-athon “Yeeh Yeeh.”
Dum & Dummer 2 is available everywhere via Paper Route EMPIRE.
In March, Dolph announced the #DumAndDummer2AlbumChallenge on his Instagram. The rapper announced that he would give away $25,000 each week for the next four weeks to the winners (one winner per week). The goal of the challenge will change each week–keep an eye on @YoungDolph for the latest updates.
