Video: Young Dolph – “Point Across”
The King of Memphis Gives the Visual Treatment to a Zaytoven-Produced Highlight 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
“King of Memphis is worth myriad repeat listens: Dolph bridges the gap between his hometown and the Atlanta production that dominates rap’s mainstream.” – SPIN
Top 10 Hip-Hop Cash Prince of 2016 – Forbes
“Start paying attention to Young Dolph before you look stupid as shit,” – Noisey
Covered and ice and dripping with charisma, Young Dolph is one of the game’s fastest rising emcees. Flexing in a mansion with four of his prettiest friends, Dolph lives a boss life in “Point Across,” his latest video. Produced by Zaytoven, who departs from his keys-driven aesthetic to bring an acoustic guitar inflected banger, “Point Across” finds Dolph reveling in his rise, spending money just to prove that he’s got more than you: “I spent a mil on ice just to get my point across.” Premiered by The FADER, who recently spotlighted Young Dolph in a revealing profile, “Point Across” is the latest video from Thinking Out Loud, Dolph’s new album released last week, following the poignant “Believe Me,” which featured emotional footage of Dolph reuniting with his family after emerging from the hospital after recovering from gunshot wounds. 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.
Packed with titanic trap-style instrumentals, viciously clever punchlines, and defiant-yet-deep glimpses into Dolph’s personal life, Thinking Out Loud is Dolph’s third major release of 2017 following February’s Gelato and April’s Bulletproof. To accompany the release of the new album, Dolph launched a brand new capsule collection of merchandise inspired by Thinking Out Loud. 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 outrageously confident statement of rap supremacy.

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.
