This Friday (Jan. 21), Young Dolph’s life and legacy will be honored by his record label Paper Route Empire with a full-length tribute album. The new project is titled Paper Route EMPIRE Presents: Long Live Dolph. As an official preview from the compilation, the fans have already received a moving single by Paper Route Empire’s longest-tenured artist Jay Fizzle titled “LLD (Long Live Dolph).” On the song, Fizzle raps over dramatic piano chords and faint percussion, speaking on the lessons he learned from his mentor.

Today (Jan. 18), Key Glock also has shared his contribution to the project. Titled “Proud,” the track details Glock’s feelings about his late friend and how he aims to honor his legacy:

I lost my dog, I lost my mind, no lie, I’m really lost inside I can get it back in blood but still, I can’t get back the time/ And fuck that humble shit, let’s go, you know I’m spazzin’ out ’bout mine I got Dolph lookin’ down on me, I know that n***a proud/

Ay, don’t worry ’bout Glizock, n***a, I’ma hold it down (Yeah)/ I went and got some blue diamonds to let ’em know your still around (Yeah) and ain’t shit change, I’m still doin’ my thing and makin’ n*ggas frown/ 

Dolph was tragically shot and killed in November outside of the Memphis bakery Makeda’s Cookies. Last week, police identified a suspect in the shooting, 23-year-old rapper Justin Johnson, and put out a first-degree murder warrant for his arrest. Johnson, who goes by the rap moniker Straight Drop, has maintained his innocence in the shooting and on Saturday (Jan. 8) said he plans to turn himself in to police.

Be sure to press play on “Proud” down below and keep and eye out for the full tribute project coming very soon. Rest in peace, Young Dolph.
