Less than two months after the tragic death of Young Dolph, a tribute album has been announced.
Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph will drop on Jan. 21 and feature label members Key Glock, Snupe Bandz, Big Moochie Grape, Kenny Muney, and more. The forthcoming album follows Paper Route’s first compilation project, Paper Route Illuminati, which dropped last July.
“My best friend, brother, and loyal business partner, Dolph was loved and admired by people all over the world,” Paper Route CEO Daddyo told Rolling Stone. “He led by example and influenced so many people both near and far. The world will never be the same without Dolph but I know he’d want me to continue his legacy by working hard to push all our artists to the next level and make PRE an international brand. I hope his fans love it as much as I do.”
Jay Fizzle’s new track “LLD” from Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph was released in tandem with the reveal. Highlighted by harmonies from a gospel choir, Fizzle pays tribute to his late cousin, who was fatally shot outside of Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies, a local bakery in Memphis, on Nov. 17.
“Got your face tatted on my back cause you always had me regardless/You took me out the ’partments and since then I ain’t been starving,” Fizzle raps, referencing the back tattoo he got in honor of Dolph back in November.
