Back in August, Young Dolph dropped his fifth solo studio LP Rich Slave, which saw 16 tracks and a few assists from Megan Thee Stallion, Paper Route artist Key Glock, and G Herbo. This week, he delivers another visual from the project for “The Land,” which is produced by Hunnit Band Yung and Sosa 808 and sees Dolph rapping about law enforcement, haters, and more:
“The police pulled me over for nothin’, just because she racist, two minutes later, it’s five police cars, they got me face down on the pavement, just ‘cause I’m a black man in America, that’s what give them permission to treat us terrible/
They too smart, too ambitious, too dangerous and vicious, every day I wake up, I make rich n***a decisions, the first person in my family to run up the millions, you ain’t one hundred, ain’t got no morals, then I don’t want no dealings/”
Matching the bars lashing out at police brutality in our country, the Paper Route Pictures-directed clip shows Dolph getting pulled over by the police before being aggressively pinned to the ground. He can later be seen spray painting Black Lives Matter phrases and the names of those unlawfully lost at the hands of police onto a patrol vehicle in protest. A powerful message from the Memphis star, indeed.
Post-release, Rich Slave peaked at the number four spot on the Billboard 200 chart thanks to 65,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release, making for Dolph’s highest charting position to date. Prior to that, he teamed up with Key Glock for the joint project Dum and Dummer, another top ten success that was released in 2019. His last solo release before Rich Slave was 2018’s Role Model, which contained collabs with Snoop Dogg, Offset, Kash Doll, and more.
