Young Dolph has an exquisite ear for talent. Moreover, he’s assembled a young and hungry roster of rappers for his Paper Route EMPIRE label. PRE is coming off a great Rolling Loud weekend. Key Glock & Dolph both shut down their sets. Today, Dolph and the rest of PRE share PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi, the label’s first-ever compilation mixtape. The mixtape represents the culmination of a long and fruitful rise for Young Dolph. Now, the mogul is ready to flex his A&R and CEO muscles, bringing a new crop of talent to the forefront.
Young Dolph Is Proving His Plan For PRE Is Working
Armed with Dolph’s sage advice and artistic guidance, Paper Route iLLUMINATi features contributions from the label’s large and growing roster, with new songs by red hot riser Key Glock, Memphis street favorites like Big Moochie Grape and Kenny Muney, and new signees like Snupe Bandz and PaperRoute Woo. The 23-track tape leaves plenty of room for the newer PRE signees to shine. Furthermore, providing solo showcases for artists like the New York-born Joddy Badass & the fiery Big Uncc. Also, allows big shots like Dolph, Glock, and Moochie to show off on solo songs of their own.
The album features a guest appearance from Gucci Mane. His 1017 label helped inspire Dolph’s vision when he founded PRE in 2010. Moreover, the Atlanta rapper trading bars with Key Glock on mixtape highlight “I Do This.” PRE-signed sound architect Bandplay puts his stamp on the mixtape’s bass-heavy sound, producing several tracks, but PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATI also features contributions from local beatmakers like Tay Keith, DJ Squeeky, and Sosa808, as well as trap titans like Drumma Boy and Budda Bless. PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi is home to recent singles like last week’s “Blu Boyz,” an expert three-man weave by Young Dolph, Key Glock, and Snupe Bandz, and “Nothing To Me,” a Dolph, Snupe, and PaperRoute Woo collaboration with a high-flying music video.’
