Young Dolph Bio – 2018 Update

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Young Dolph originally used music as a means of emotional release after a series of incidences (e.g. the death of his grandmother, a car accident that nearly took his life) in the late 2000’s. In 2008, the teen issued his first mixtape dubbed, Paper Route Campaign. Continuing to release new tapes over the next few years, it wasn’t until 2016 that he released his long-awaited debut album, King of Memphis. Popular among fans, the project peaked as high as number 49 on the Billboard 200; not only that, but it had spawned the hit single, Get Paid.

So far this year, Young Dolph has been pretty busy with his new releases. In February, he issued a new EP, Gelato, which was made available as a digital download. Later in April, he came out with his second album, Bulletproof, which managed to surpass that of its predecessor in terms of success. From there, he teamed up with fellow rapper Berner on the record, Tracking Numbers, after which he dropped his third studio album, Thinking Out Loud on October 20, 2017. Featuring guest appearances from 2 Chains, D.R.A.M., Gucci Mane, among others, it spawned three promotional singles, Believe Me, Drippy, and While U Here. In support of said projects, he has been touring for most of the year; most recently, he held a performance in Mountain View, California.
