EDITORS’ NOTES

Instead of harping on the inconveniences he’s endured—the Memphis MC has been shot and shot at, releasing projects with nose-thumbing titles like Bulletproof and N*ggas Get Shot Everyday—Young Dolph is focused on being an example for others looking to overcome rough origin stories. He wastes no time detailing the specifics of his own on Role Model’s opener, “Black Queen,” an ode to his parents’ resilience (and an acknowledgment of their shortcomings). On the whole, Role Model is a celebration of life lived contentedly, boasting brand-appropriate features from longtime weed enthusiast Snoop Dogg (“I Think I Can Fly”) and Migos member Offset (“Break the Bank”). But it’s “How U Luv Dat” that best exemplifies how, as someone whose success grows with each release, Dolph is proudest that he is simply still around to enjoy it.

He's still trash

Seriously, number 15 on the billboard chart, and he's still independent, Who the hell is buying this garbage music from an independent rapper who sounds exactly like every mainstream rapper. The album is absolutely terrible, just as always, same basic lyrics with nothing interesting or thought-provoking about them, same generic trap beats, same bragging and degrading lyrics, same elementary flows, when are people going to move on from this kind of music? You'd have to either be a teenager or or just really dumb to enjoy this. I mean, I'm all for the southern bump and fun rap that doesn't take itself too seriously from time to time, but that actually has good beats, unlike this, which has generic and soul-less production, along with a rapper who as awful as his lyrics are, wants people to take himseriously. Nope.
