The Come Up: Young Dolph


Young Dolph isn’t quite a household name yet, but he’s on a mission to change that. The Memphis native is gaining momentum in his city, coming off the heels of rappers such as Three 6 Mafia and Yo Gotti. Dating back to 2011, Dolph has been relentless with his mixtape releases, dropping underground sensations Blue Magic, his High Class Street Music series, and East Atlanta South Memphis with Gucci Mane. Now, he’s back with his best effort South Memphis Kingpin, which contains a strong presence from rising beatmaker Izze The Producer.

Dolph’s often gives two perspectives to street music. His biggest hit “A-Plus” is a prime example, displaying his laid-back approach and tackling familiar topics with an aggressive manner. In other standouts like “Grew Up”, he shows a different side of himself by focusing on the realities of hustling and surviving the hardships of Memphis. Dolph is more complex than your average rapper claiming they started from the bottom.

His ambition and hunger to be the best were key takeaways when XXL spoke with Dolph about getting love in Memphis, why he turned down signing to Yo Gotti’s CMG label, and what the future holds for him. Get to know Young Dolph in The Come Up.Eric Diep
