Young Dolph and his Paper Route Empire label are bringing more heat.
On Friday, the Memphis-bred rapper announced the release of Paper Route Illuminati, a compilation mixtape showcasing the imprint’s roster of talent. The effort will include contributions from Key Glock, Big Moochie Grape, and Kenny Muney, as well as new signees like Snupe Bandz, PaperRoute Woo, Big Unc, and more.
Dolph teased the release during an interview with XXL magazine last month, when asked about his proudest accomplishment with the PRE team.
“I really think this tape that I’m finna put out, this compilation tape where everybody is on it just because it’s a mixture, and a variety of a lot of different moods and a lot of different artists,” he said. “You got the female on there [Joddy Badass]. She’s the first female I signed. I waited a long time to sign a female and just felt like a special moment, a special time. You got everybody on there bringing their creativity to the project and make the project what it is.”
In conjunction with mixtape announcement, Dolph, Glock, and Snupe gave fans another taste of what they and PRE have in store. The artists released the project’s “Blu Boyz” cut featuring instrumentals from Bandplay. The song comes more than a month after PRE released “Nothing to Me” with Dolph, Snupe, and Paper Route Woo, and less than four months after Dolph and Glock delivered their Dum and Dummer 2 collaborative record.
According to PRE, Paper Route Illuminati will include production by Tay Keith, DJ Squeeky, Sosa 808, and, of course, Bandplay. You can pre-order the tape, which is expected to arrive on July 30, and listen to “Blu Boyz” above.
