Young Dolph Slams Record Labels in “Slave Owner” Video
Young Dolph is taking a shot at record labels with his latest video for "Slave Owner" and it's sure to get a lot of people talking. On Thursday (May 3), the Memphis rapper dropped the Gabriel Hart-directed visuals, which compare record labels to slave owners.
Set in the form of a movie, the video begins with Dolph pulling up to the house of plantation owner who wants the rapper to sign with his record label. "That there man is gonna make Liberty Land lots of money," the owner in the video says. Later in the visuals, artists are compared to slaves who are being taken advantage of by the label. The plantation owner then tries to get Dolph to sign with him, offering the rapper a 360 deal.
Ahead of the release of the "Slave Owner" video, Young Dolph hopped on Twitter and sent out a tweet that appears to refer to Kanye West's comments about slavery being a choice. "Industry Uncle Tom nixxas made 'A Choice' to become a FUKKK NIXXA," Dolph tweeted.
"Slave Owner" is featured on Dolph's latest project, Niggas Get Shot Everyday. The six-track EP also includes the songs "Kush on the Yacht" and "Paranoid." Niggas Get Shot Everyday serves as a follow up to his 2017 album, Thinking Out Loud.
