It's DOLPH.


A week after he was released from hospital after being shot in L.A., Young Dolph has delivered his Thinking Out Loud project. The rapper's third project of 2017 is another concise package of Memphis street rap, informer by his recent brushes with death. "Eddie Cane" is the shortest song on the album, but it leaves a sting. Featuring an impossibly heavy beat from Buddha Bless, which nods to pummeling 80s rap production in its drum programming, while also merging it with the thump of trap and the ethereal quality of cloud rap in its synth work. At the center of it all is an aggressive, simple, and engaging performance from Dolph. His rhymes are delivered with a matter of fact delivery, but with a wit similar to his protege Gucci Mane. "Chasing a hundred M's but I'm starting to get impatient," he raps. "Benjamin Franklin my favorite / I stay fly in the latest, yeah yeah / These millions getting contagious / Half a million dollar coupe look just like a spaceship." When she with me all we do is go shopping and take tripsIt doesn't need to be any longer than it is to get the point across. 

The project follows Bulletproof, yet another album inspired by real life violence. The tape was released after Dolph was fired at 100 times in Charlottesville while in his $300,000 bulletproof SUV. 

Thinking Out Loud features production from Mike WiLL MAde-It, Honorable C.N.O.T.E, Drumma Boy, Zaytoven, and more. Guest appearances come from Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, and Ty Dolla $ign (who all appear on "Go Get Sum Mo"), as well as D.R.A.M., who appears on "All Of Mine." Listen to the previously released singles "While U Here," "Believe Me," and "Drippy." 

Dolph recently announced that he will be selling bulletproof vest-inspired flak jackets as merch. Find more information on that here.

Listen to the full project across all major streaming services.

Quotable Lyrics:
I got no love for a hater
No respect for a buster
My lil bitch she a dime
That's one lil bad motherfucker
Always been hungry
Even after the meetings
Did a lot of shit when I was young
I hope god forgive me
Took a lot of chances
Hurt a lot of feelings
Dodged a lot of cases
Bad bitch didn't want shit
From me but penetration
Chasing a hundred Ms
But I'm starting to get impatient
