Video:  Young Dolph – “Black Queen” ft. Momma Gabbana

The King of Memphis Rhymes To His Mother’s Piano Playing in the Touching Video for the Role Model Intro


The Video:

Though Young Dolph makes flexing look easy, the Memphis-born rapper has earned every diamond, designer thread, and luxury car he owns. Dolph has never shied away from the intense circumstances into which he was born, rather, he celebrates the challenges he’s overcome while inspiring others to keep pursuing their dreams too. Today, he shares the video for the most touching and tender track from his Role Model project in which he celebrates the most important person in his life, his mom, whom he knights as his “Black Queen.”

With his beautiful mother regally playing a grand piano by his side, this video represents a happy ending to a turbulent beginning; Dolph recounts how he was born to crack-addicted parents but also credits his rough upbringing for providing him with the mental and emotional stamina to succeed in the rap game and the trap game: “Same hood fucked my mom and dad up, I made a million off of that block.” In the video, Dolph addresses his mother directly, forgiving her for her role in his troubled upbringing, channeling Tupac when he says, “Even though you was a crack fiend, momma/You gave birth to a trap king, momma/You gon’ always be my trap queen, momma/Damn, I mean you’ll always be my black queen, momma.”

“Black Queen” is the introductory track from Role Model, Dolph’s latest studio album, which peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100.  Released by Paper Route EMPIRERole Model provides a new context for Dolph’s braggadocio and sets an example for rising independent rappers and anyone else trying to get out the mud. Role Model finds Dolph leveling up, experimenting with new flows and raising his boastful bars to a superhuman level. Featuring appearances from Snoop Dogg, Offset, Key Glock, and Kash DollRole Model is Dolph’s origin story, establishing him as a symbol of hope to kids in the hood who desperately want to improve their lives. Last month, Dolph announces the #ThatsMajorChallenge, inspired by his video for “Major,” featuring Key Glock, offering to gift a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to the maker of the best user-generated content for the song.

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 JYoung Jeezy, and Rick Ross. In 2015, Dolph headlined his own tour selling out throughout the country. – HotNewHipHop
