An introduction to the self-described "King of Memphis".
Memphis isn't necessarily a hot-bed for hip hop, but it's had its moments. Three 6 Mafia came from Memphis, as did 8 Ball & MJG. Alternative rapper Cities Aviv and gangster rapper Yo Gotti come from the southwestern Tennessee city as well.
Most recently, a rapper named Young Dolph has come out of Memphis, doing a style of rap music that embodies his spiritual forefathers Three 6 Mafia while keeping it modern enough to make waves throughout the internet. His album recently debuted at #49 on the Billboard 200, a big statement from an independent album. Titled King of Memphis, it's clear that Young Dolph is doing wonders for his hometown; maybe putting Memphis on the map harder than any rapper since Juicy J.
