Young Dolph is sitting pretty at the top of countless artist-to-watch lists, including Forbes’ Top 10 Hip-Hop Cash Princes of 2016. So it’s only fitting that his latest video, “Money Power Respect,” would define everything he needs at the top.
The filled with cars, money, women and of course, respect. He rides around in a drop top and glorifies the teenage years when he “started running in and out [his] mama’s house.” Life on the streets isn’t easy, but according to Dolph there’s only one way to survive it all.
“I seen a lotta sh-t that I never was supposed to see/On top of the world, right now this where I’m supposed to be…I f-ck wit you but don’t trust you/Diamonds dancing like Usher/My n—a straight out the gutta/Artillery came from Russia/Money Power Respect.”
Let Dolph tell it, “they ain’t gotta like me/But I guarantee they gonna have to respect me.” And if you ask the hip-hop world, they certainly do.
While “Money Power Respect” is the latest single off the Memphis rapper’s 2015 mixtape, 16 Zips, heads can get more of Dolph’s Tennessee twang from his debut album, King of Memphis, which dropped last month.
