Paper Route EMPIRE Founder and CEO Young Dolph shares Rich Slave, his most emotional, political album yet and his first solo album in two years.
The album explores Dolph's rags to riches story, emphasizing his Memphis roots with Dirty South instrumentals and recorded phone conversations with a family friend, as he mixes his trademark flex-heavy witticisms with his thoughts on the responsibilities that comes with mogul status. As Dolph flexes bar after bar about his earned wealth, the album title Rich Slave emphasizes the glass ceiling on the upward mobility of Black people; no amount of money can buy true equality for Black people in this country: "They say this the land of the free/It seem like the land of bullsh*t to me," rhymes Dolph on album highlight "The Land."
Boasting production from Memphis natives Bandplay and Juicy J, as well as Sosa 808 and others, Rich Slave is home to recent singles like the West Coast tribute "Death Row," the conversational "Blue Diamonds," and the Megan Thee Stallion-featuring riders' anthem "RNB." With additional appearances from G Herbo and PRE signee Key Glock, “Rich Slave“ is now available everywhere via Paper Route EMPIRE.
