With Young Dolph's next project Role Model on the horizon, the Memphis rapper has shared the cover art. It's slated for release on Sept. 21.

Dolph dropped the artwork yesterday (Aug. 30) on Instagram. It features a photo of the "100 Shots" rapper, decked out in chains, blowing smoke in the driver's seat of a black drop top, parked next to a few neighborhood kids. "P.S. i use to be lil dude in da red shirt," he wrote in the caption.

The cover drops in conjunction with the project's lead single, "Major." The song features a verse from fellow Tennessean Key Glock, who is signed to Dolph's independent label Paper Route Empire.

In recent weeks, Young Dolph has made a point to boast about his independence. He recently claimed on Instagram that he turned down a $22 million contract in order to preserve his freedom.

"Bruh, for the last six months, I been havin' a muthafuckin' 22 million dollar contract, debatin' on should I do the deal or not," he said. "Fuck the $22 million."

The caption for Dolph's latest post revealing the Role Model cover includes the hashtag #FukThe22Million. The offering will be Dolph's first since last October's Thinking Out Loud. He also let loose the Niggas Get Shot Everyday EP in February.
