Charting his own path to stardom, Young Dolph is set to grow Paper Route EMPIRE to new heights in 2021. Kicking off a busy year for the industry titan, Dolph shares Rich Slave (Deluxe), expanding his acclaimed 2020 album. The deluxe edition offers eight new tracks; bringing the blend of outlandish flexes, confident punchlines, and words of wisdom for which Dolph is known.
Though Dolph offers a snapshot of his extravagant life, he never forgets where he came from–the 8 new tracks emphasize Dolph’s connection to his hometown of Memphis. That featuring guest spots from Dolph’s Paper Route EMPIRE signees Key Glock and Kenny Muney; boasting production from PRE producer Bandplay.
It’s a cesspool of packing references to local food spots and neighborhood haunts. It flexes Dolph’s maturity over the year and is a fine linsten through. Along with Rich Slave (Deluxe), Dolph shares the music video for “To Be Honest,” an album highlight.
Produced by Juicy J, “To Be Honest” is a masterpiece of unapologetic flexing; as Dolph ignores his naysayers and focuses on his bankroll: “I’m nothin’ like the rest, so what the f*ck did you expect?/To be honest, I don’t care ’bout your opinion, where the check?”
In the video, Dolph pops bottles in a mansion with a bevy of baddies; before heading to a private movie theater. There he watches football tape with NFL hall of famer Deion Sanders (who gets a shoutout in the lyrics) and to play catch with Deion’s son Shadeur Sanders, a major QB prospect.
2021 is already off to a fast start for the Memphis native and Dolph is setting the tone for the south. Rich Slave Deluxe is available on all streaming platforms.
