Dolph recently spoke with XXL about how he wants to see other Memphis artists find success. He says, "I’m just turning this shit around. I’m just making this shit different. Think about how many rappers done got hot and blew up and became millionaires out of Memphis in the last 10 years. Think about that shit. In the last 10 years, what rappers done came out and blew up and became a millionaire? Yo Gotti and Young Dolph. Triple 6, 8ball and MJG, that was their time. And even in their time, who all was it — nobody but Three 6 and 8ball and MJG. But this is the city of music. This is where the whole sound coming from. It don’t make sense to me so I’m finna change the shit, flip it around.”
