Today, hip hop continues to mourn the loss of Young Dolph, who was senselessly shot and killed weeks ago in his hometown. Just before December arrived, C-Murder decided to pay tribute to the late rapper with “I Don’t Wanna Go Outside,” a collaboration alongside the BYR Singers that sees him reflecting on his realization of Dolph’s death from behind bars:
“What’s the deal, boy, life is real, I was sittin’ on a bunk when Dolph got killed, I jumped off the bunk like I done lost my sense, oh, did I mention, my nigga lost his life in Memphis, it’s senseless genocide, niggas ridin’ relentless, I don’t wanna go outside no more…”
“I had to do this tribute, a song to tell the world about Dolph and who he was to me and the community. Dolph was a friend. Y’all don’t even know how he came through for me and my family! Dolph put money on my books, checked on me every week, checked on my spirit and bought my children Christmas gifts! He even tried to buy my daughter a car, but she didn’t have her license yet. … Rest In Heaven Dolph, we gone miss you!”
Back in August, C-Murder released his latest body of work Give Me Freedom or Give Me Death, a 15-track body of work that mixes new music with interview clips of the New Orleans legend speaking on his incarceration and campaign for freedom. In addition to the BYR Singers, Virgo, Dale Ramsey, and 2meka Diaz contribute to the overall effort.
