On the 20th of October, Young Dolph released his most recent project Thinking Out Loud, not long after the artist had recovered from a series of gunshot wounds sustained during an incident in California. In the past year alone, Young Dolph has released several studio projects, mixtapes, a collaborative full length with Berner, thus, continuing to maintain himself as one of the hardest working acts in rap. The Memphis-born Adolph Thornton has been rapping for what’s approaching a decade in the industry, yet a great many have only been exposed to Dolph within the last few years. He’s a close friend and collaborator with one of the biggest rappers in the game, Gucci Mane, and has been on tracks with veterans and rising stars alike, all the while holding his own. But for those who are out of the loop, you might be asking, where in the world did this Young Dolph guy come from anyway?

After all, maybe you heard singles such as “Preach,” “Get This Money,” “Get Paid” or “100 Shots,” and you’re not quite convinced.
