The Video:

Building up momentum with a steady stream of quality visuals and strong projects, Young Dolph is one of the best and most popular independent rappers in the game today. On “Play Wit Yo Bitch,” the Zaytoven-produced closing track of his latest mixtape, Gelato, Dolph declared himself the unquestioned King of Memphis, taking vicious shots at crosstown rival Yo Gotti. The video, released last night, provides more background about the beef, from Yo Gotti’s attempts to sign Dolph to his about-face when Dolph started getting popular on his own. Employing a Yo Gotti look-alike to recreate scenes from the past, Young Dolph provides a humorous look at his conflict with “Ho Gotti” and illustrates legitimate reasons for beef between the two Bluff City rivals.

“Play Wit Yo Bitch” is only the latest in an epic string of high-quality visuals from Dolph. Earlier this month, Dolph rocked Versace snow boots in the NOISEY premiered “Whole Lot,” unveiled the Ten Baller Commandments on “Baller Alert,” saluted the Black Mafia Family on Meech,” and celebrated the release of his latest mixtape with the opulent video for “Gelato,” which has earned over 1.6 million views on YouTube since its release. The videos all hail from Dolph’s popular and acclaimed Gelato mixtape, which 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 mixtapes Rich Crack BabyBo$$e$ and $hooter$, and King of Memphis, named by XXL as one of the Best Projects of the Year. Respected in the trap world, Young Dolph has also collaborated with the likes of Gucci Mane, T.I., Boozie Badazz, 21 Savage, 2 Chainz, and more during his career. The 11-track Gelato mixtape is now available for purchase on iTunes and stream on SoundCloud.

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. On the strength of releasing consistent quality mixtapes, Dolph became one of the only independent musicians to have multiple Top 20 records with “Preach” and “California” and Top 40 records with “Make the World Go Around” and “Pulled Up.” Yet to release an official 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. Dolph recently released Rich Crack Baby and completed his nation-wide Royalty tour.

EMPIRE Background

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.
