The world lost a modern music star when Young Dolph passed away in November. Similarly to other leaders of his magnitude, Dolph left behind lasting legacy. That legacy includes Paper Route Empire (PRE), a thriving independent record label and video production company with a talented and hungry group of artists eager and equipped to fulfill their mentor’s vast vision. Today, Paper Route Empire announces Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, a compilation mixtape dedicated to the memory of the label’s co-founder and CEO.
The upcoming mixtape features contributions from the full PRE roster, including Key Glock, Big Moochie Grape, Kenny Muney, Jay Fizzle, Joddy Badass, Snupe Bandz, Paper Route Woo, and Chitana. Though he’s no longer with us, the Dolph’s presence blesses the entire album, whether in snippets of old interviews or on tribute tracks like “Long Live Dolph” by Jay Fizzle. Long Live Dolph also features an unheard verse from Dolph himself, on a collaboration with one of his PRE artists. Following up last summer’s PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi, a project that affirmed Dolph’s imperial ambitions and showcased the wide-ranging talents of his disciples, Long Live Dolph releases on January 21st via Paper Route Empire.
My best friend, brother, and loyal business partner, Dolph was loved and admired by people all over the world. He led by example and influenced so many people both near and far. The world will never be the same without Dolph but I know he’d want me to continue his legacy by working hard to push all our artists to the next level and make PRE an international brand. I hope his fans love it as much as I do.Daddyo, Paper Route Empire’s CEO, regarding the release of the mixtape
