The passing of Memphis rapper Young Dolph was one of the hardest blows to stomach for hip-hop lovers in 2021, marking a truly tragic moment in last year’s rap history. The iconic rapper leaves behind a lasting legacy that includes Paper Route Empire, his independent record label, which has platformed artists including Key Glock, Jay Fizzle, Kenny Muney, Snupe Bandz, Big Moochie Grape, and more.
It has been hard for fans to consider Dolph’s passing, but it’s been even more heartbreaking for his friends, family, and the team of incredible artists soaking up game from him on a daily basis. As they continue to mourn his death, Dolph’s artists on Paper Route Empire are teaming up to deliver a compilation album later this month called Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, making the announcement on Monday (January 10) with Jay Fizzle’s new tribute single, “LLD.”
The album will be out on January 21, including songs from the full PRE roster, and is dedicated to Dolph’s memory. Jay Fizzle, PRE’s longest-tenured artist, kicks off the rollout with the title track, “LLD,” during which we can hear the rapper get audibly emotional while recalling all of the amazing things Dolph did for him throughout his life and career.
