In honor of his heavenly 37th birthday, Paper Route Empire shares Young Dolph’s first posthumous single titled “Hall of Fame.”
The song is classic Dolph, it encapsulates everything about his music we know and love. Over a hard-hitting beat crafted by none other than Bandplay, the PRE chief reflects on his roots, chronicles his come up, and flexes his undeniable triumphs and hard-earned riches with his humorous wit: “Have you ever felt a V12 when the gears change?/ Have you seen my new charm? It’s taller than Johnny Dang.”
Fitting for this day, the song almost feels like a self-portrait or autobiography as Dolph reflects on many of the things that made him: his family, his grind, and his sacrifice.
Dolph was always a man who took pride in loving his family, uplifting others, and sharing his wisdom and business acumen anytime he could. He left behind a legacy and memories that continue to inspire his fans and those who knew and loved him, including his Paper Route Empire family who are honoring his legacy by going as hard as possible.
Young Dolph was shot and killed in November 2021 at the age of 36. A street in Memphis has since been renamed to honor Dolph, and Paper Route Empire released the tribute compilation “Long Live Young Dolph.”
